Itís dark chocolate brown with plum tones and a modest amount of tan head which settles fairly quickly. Aromas or caramel, booze, some dark pit fruit, like cherry or plum. Tastes sort of like a tripel but with a little roasty bitterness and some burnt dark sugar and notes of syrupy fruit. I guess the oak is lost on me, but I sat on this for a few months so maybe thatís got something to do with it ?? Soft carbonation and full flavored. If this was a blind tasting Iím pretty sure I wouldnít think his was a stout, but itís still delicious. Iíve had 3 beers in this collection and I have to say, I am a fan of the concept and itís great to see how each builds upon the mother brew.

Pours a nice dark color almost coffee like. Big light brown head that seems a bit frothy

Absolutely terrible, couldnít finish. Had zero body and tasted like raisin soda. Not even a hint of malts, hops or coffee.

Pours dark with a lot of fine bubbles similar to the other barrel rooms beers but not as intense or effervescent. Tastes like a stout with chocolate, dark malts, coffee and a sweetness. Also some spice but I donít recall any oak. But unlike a stout it has that essence of Belgian. Most of the acid that was in the other barrel room beers is missing or muted.

This is a crazy one. It pours and drinks like coke. It smells very caramelly and brown sugary. One of the best noses Iíve had. The taste is similar to the nose with a little fruity and a lot of effervescence.

This is very very belgian! As far as imperial stouts go this is similar in flavor but thatís about it. Pours a very effervescent black. White head that fades fast. Aroma is belgian. Fruity with a lot of brown sugar and grape. Flavor is malty and sweet with a lot of sugarcane and a hint of coffee. Itís extremely carbonated which I was not expecting because the bottle says imperial stout... This is a great beer. A little more belgian than stout I think, but great nonetheless.

Interesting hybrid. I would call this a stout-inspired quad. The Belgian notes are all there: carbonation, fruit, and spiciness. A bit of bourbon from the aging. Added to this is some hints of stout notes, chocolate, coffee, roastiness, and so on. Mouthfeel is Belgian all the way, not thick or heavy like you'd expect in a comparable ABV stout. As a quad, it's pretty good, but I wouldn't go into this expecting a stout, regardless of what the label says. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The corked, caged bottle. The pour is dark brown to about black with a moderate, lingering beige head. The aroma reminds me more of dark fruits than chocolate and coffee as advertised but I am clearly getting the oak barrel. Some dark malts. There is an acidic, fruit juice character to the body. But it still lands in the medium to full range. The taste is an improvement over the aroma with a sweet but smooth fruitiness, a sour or tartness, and a moderate lingering bitterness. This was not what I would expect from a stout.
