TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Draft on tap at the Revolution Brewery Grand Opening Party (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich thick opaque black hue. Deeper brown head dies to a firm layer, laces ok overall. Sticks around as a film, thick and rich body. Aromas are richer smooth vanilla and toffee. Caramel, roast, and touches of molasses. Gentle spirit, heat, and oak rise to the occasion. Roasty and dark malts. More cocoa, touches of black malts grow firmly, faint dark fruit. Initial is thick and full bodied, rich roast meets flashes of sweet sticky toffee, caramel. Dark chocolate, vanilla, touches of burnt marshmellows. Rich vanilla, barrel, smoothed out and sticky. Touches of heat meld out into a sticky deeper dark middle, firm sweetness, good vanilla and barrel tannins. Backend shows more heat, vanilla, rich deep dark flavors. Plum, rich roast and coffee come on firm in finish with good contrast, rich flavors, and a firm barre vanilla marshmellow thing. This thing is good. It probably lacks complexity, but itís a top notch beer overall. Great barrel flavors without much heat. Very nice. Aroma might be a touch lacking. Prefer BA Baracus

On tap @ Revs production brewery grand opening. Pours a thick oily black with a dark brown head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has a good amount of vanilla and bourbon with roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Flavor has lots of roasted malts with underlying vanilla and a booze bourbon finish. Thick on the tongue.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - AUG 24, 2011
On tap at the brewpub -- notes from April 30th, 2011.
Pours a rich dark chocolate brown with frothy, tightly-packed caramel-colored head that leaves rings of plentiful lace. Aroma gives up a faint hint of dark stone fruits right from the start followed by dark chocolate, vanilla, a dose of toffee, and a whiff of boozy bourbon, Aroma is considerably more subtle than their previous Heaven-Hill-barrel-aged offerings. Flavor shows a touch of bourbon booze up front, though not harsh at all; itís well-integrated with the other flavors of rich chocolate, roasted grain, vanilla, oak, a touch of toffee, and a dash of that stone fruit that showed up on the nose. Finishes with a rich, thick, creamy palate. Revolution pretty much hit this one out of the park -- their best bourbon-barrel effort by far.

On tap at the fistival. Pour is dark brown with a nice khaki head that retains well in this glass. Very boozy out of the gate, but after allowing it to breathe a bit my perception improves. Aromas of bourbon, licorice, cocoa, and ash; the flavor profile is bitter, ashy, and sweet. Licorice, raisins, chocolate, and bourbon mesh together fairly well. The body is slightly thin at the end for me, but this one proved very nice overall.

Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Tap. Aroma was lots of bourbon, chocolate, coffee. Poured jet black. Flavor was incredible, molasses, chocolate, bourbon, wood. Fullbodied, really thick and syrupy. Lots of body in this stout...the way I think it should be. Booziness was apparent but expected at 13%. Sampled two different times...glad I was able to try this one.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a thin, creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a ring of lacing throughout. Aroma is full of bourbon and sweet molasses. Vanilla, rich chocolate, caramel, some vinous dark fruits, a touch of roast, and some oak. Flavor is similar and quite deep. Plenty of English toffees and molasses up front with lots of rich chocolates. A solid, even layer of bourbon-vanilla throughout along with a light roast on the backend with a touch of dark fruit. Finishes with lots of pleasant, rich chocolates and molasses with a solid blend of vanilla-bourbon-oak as well as a balancing roasty, coffee bitterness. Just a touch of alcohol heat which is very well hidden otherwise. Lengthy, slightly roasty, rich chocolate, and oaky-vanilla aftertaste that lingers for a lengthy duration. Medium-full, slightly chewy, smooth body and soft, light carbonation. Overall, a pretty awesome barrel-aged impy. Deep and aggressive, but extremely well balanced and easy drinking for such a big beer. Very impressed with this one.

Ba Sodom. On tap at rev... pours a mostly stouty deep pour with thinner edges residing on the backside... Aroma is rich and assertive with vanilla and bourbon notes, chocolate aside, mostly resembling a solid ba imperial stout... Flavor is boozy upfront, not withstanding, and not really letting go. Otherwise, semi-sweet chocolate notes with an assertive barrel presence offering more of a boozy bourbon profile. Lighter vanilla and woody undertones but still quite high on the boozy side. Flavor profile is still quite nice albeit a little bit too alcohol laiden. Could use a bit more of a body, a touch soft for me for such a big style. Like it but a bit too aggressive on the flavor front with big barrel notes all around 8/4/7/3/15

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2011
On tap: The aroma consists of maple syrup, chocolate,a touch of raisin, and coffee. Itís a dark brown, virtually black, with a minimal brown head that is really just a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. The finish has moderate-strong maple syrup and a hint of wood. Full bodied with minimal carbonation and ansomewhat sticky mouthfeel. The whole maple syrup and chocolate combination is right up my alley.
