4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On cask at the King of Prussia Location. Pulled into a snifter. Pours a deep, dark black with a small, frothy tan head that lasted throughout and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is a great bourbon-oak and vanilla. Flavor is very smooth bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malt. Incredibly well-balanced. Full bodied. Nice warming finish, not overwhelming. Soft carbonation. Really tasty. Great Imperial Stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at KoP BrewPub (at 9.5%ABV): Aroma of bourbon, milk chocolate, and oak. Poured black in color with a medium to large-sized, creamy, dense, brown head that lasted throughout. Opaque. Not sparkling. Decent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of bourbon, light roasted malts, light chocolate, and light alcohol. Medium body. Slightly thin texture. Cask carbonation. Bourbon and slight roasted malt finish. Even their Cask beers are served way too cold!!!!

On tap at the KoP location. Hand pump/cask conditioned. Poured a dark black color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of bourbon, some chocolate and roasted malts. Light vanilla in the tastes. The non barrel aged version was better.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
KOP near Philly: Watery and bland. It seemed all the time in the barrel robbed this beer of any semblance of flavor. Decent lacing though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask... Poured an opaque black color with a medium sized tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, light chocolate and roast. Watery chocolate roast taste, hot bourbon alcohol finish. Thin mouthfeel, barrel aging gone wrong.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 On tap, and available in growlers. Pours dark brown/black, with a small, tan/brown head. Aroma is bourbon, malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is similar to the aroma, with bourbon out front. Very little carbonation. The body is on the light side, especially for an Imperial Stout. This is one of the better beers I’ve had at Rock Bottom, but I wish they’d go the extra step with their cask conditioned beers.
