Bottle pour from mydude’s dude.
Pours black with a small head.

Aroma is rich & boozy with some big sweet & fudgy elements, some caramel... Lots of whiskey, a pretty sizeable roast quotent.

The flavor is big, sweet, & boozy with plenty of roast & bitterness for balance. It’s chocolaty & plenty whiskey forward.

Tasty

Th whisky barreling kills all remnants of Belgian in this imperial stout, but is so delicious as to still be an improvement. Thin for an 11.5% beer but smooth. Strong whiskey notes with anise and roast. Quite enjoyable.

On tap at Stong Ale Fest - 2015. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a frothy brown head and good lacing. Caramelized sugars, coconut, cocoa nibs, dark fruits, raisins, and toffee in the aroma. Taste is big coconut, raisins, toffee, ripe prunes, dates, brown sugar, oak, and light spice. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really tasty stuff.

A frothy dark khaki head crowns a midnight black body with a ring of leopard lace and alcohol legs all around

Aromas and flavors are rich with licorice, dried dark fruit, and dark cherry with a massive base of chocolate cake, peanut butter-cocunut-cream balancing, accented by elegant whiskey spikes, bold, integrated, and creamy, what else do you want from the style?

notalush (5716) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Tap at the brewery - pours pitch black - moderate lace - I’ve been meaning to revisit new batches of the base beer and this beer really motivates me - the whiskey barrel makes it a little boozy, but there is a lot of great stuff going on here - nose of brown sugar, tamarind, smoke, raisin, tannic notes - flavor hasa lot of earthy, peaty charactwr from the whiskey - sweet, but with a dry earthy whiskey and smoke quality - bittersweet chocolate - dark fruit - finish is a little hot, but this is fairly.

Bottle at a tasting at Butler's place. Bottle 193 series 2. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma is malty almost barleywineish. Dark fruits. Not roasty at all. Very sweet. Some roast on the flavor. Some bourbon. Not a lot of oak. Overall a really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (9073) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2015
Bomber, bottle #426, release #2, anno 2013 courtesy of and shared with Omgrich. Couleur brune foncée presque noire, col épais et crémeux café au lait tirant sur le moka. Arôme est superbe avec un malté divin le tout sur un whisky restant discret mais efficace et qui apporte sa petite dose de vanille et boisé. Palais est fortement centré sur les malts, ici des notes caramel, chocolaté avec un rappel presque de cacao. Le whisky est présent et ajoute une petite pointe vanillée venant probablement de la vanille et du chêne américain si caractéristique. Le tout est épais et délicieux avec un petit rétro de cassis noirs, malt cara avec une fini note d’amertume et un léger boisé épicé. Mémorable, qui se déguste à l’aise, gagnant en complexité au fil du temps.
