Courtesy boboski. Pours a deep, dark mahogany color. The head showed a half-moon shaped gathering of large, tan bubbles and a thin film. Tiny traces of sudsy lacing were noted. The aroma showed chocolate malts, oak, and nougat. Some alcohol was detectable in the nose, though it was not unpleasant or overbearing. The flavor was of chocolate, bourbon, and caramel, with just a bit of sour yeast in the finish. Medium body that went down very smooth. There is a slight funky, bourbon aftertaste that is accompanied by a little heat from the alcohol. Very, very nice brew.

Courtesy boboski. Pours black with a small, bubbly light brown head. Smells of dark fruits, chocolate, and sweet molasses. The taste is very fruity for an imperial stout, although there was definite chocolate and dark malty characters everywhere. Nice thick body, oily, sticky mouthfeel, with a nice full flavored finish. The aftertaste has some good roast and chocolate flavors as well. The bourbon is there, but definitely not up in your face. Although it definitely shows up in the aftertaste and lingers for a bit.

Lowe1983 (1343) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Pours a black color with a brown head. Aroma is of oak, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, bourbon, and a hint of alcohol. Flavor starts of a little sweet with the dark fruits and oak that give way to the roasted flavors of chocolate and coffee. Finishes with some bitterness and alcohol warming. Better then their regular imperial stout but still not my favorite.

The color is a deep black with a tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit greet the nose. Flavor is dominated by a roasted coffee taste and a bourbon background.

RBSG 07. A huge chocolate aroma from this beer. A jet black pour with little to no head. A flavor of chocolate, bourbon, and a hint of abv. Very good carbonation and mouthfeel. Nice warmth without being to warm.
