COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Stout has been complemented by a generous bourbon flavor after aging five extra weeks in white oak bourbon barrels. Already saturated with dark roasted malt flavor, bourbon and oak highlights perfect the balance in this enormously rich ale.

Thanks sick_boy282. Pours with a black body topped by a thin, brown head with little lacing. Itís sweet and creamy with a note of vanilla and bourbon as well as a touch of roastiness. Full bodied and smooth.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 31, 2007
1 L bottle. Pours black with a big cascading tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt, smoke, bourbon, leather, oak, and caramel. A shockingly thinnish mouthfeel for an Imperial. Taste is nice; good bittersweet chocolate and coffee flavors with a strong, but not overwhelming bourbon sourness. Some vanilla, caramel, oak, and earthy flavors that pop out at different times. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours deep black with notes of choclate, vanilla bean, charred oak, and oddly a smoke meat smell. The moderate bodied flavoirs all become pronounced on the palate. The finish is long and hides the ABV pretty well.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2007
2007 Bottle labled 11%alc. Pours black with a small tan head that fades to a ring and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, and a hint of oak. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium bodied with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness and warm alcohol finish. Good.

IrishBoy (4071) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 10, 2007
1 L Bottle from tytoanderso; Nose of smoke, tobacco, roastiness, and chocolate; opaque black with a medium cinnamon tan head; flavor has bourbon, light sourness, with some chocolate and oak. I donít think it is a brett beer so it must be lightly infected, doenít taste that good.

bb (8122) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle. Blackish beer with a small tan head. Coffee, bourbon, chocolate, oak aroma. Chocolate, bourbon, brown sugar, oak flavors that arenít as complex as Iíd like to see, though still good. Medium body and would like to see a bit fuller. LIngering bourbon, coffee, molasses with a bit of citrus malt. Decent, but want more out of it.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a dark black with a fleeting but billowy coffee-colored head. Aroma is sweet and full with notes of molasses, brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, and a subtle alcoholic bite. Taste is medium bodied and smooth with a bold chocolate and roasted malt flavor opening up into a crisper finish thatís part brown liquor and part hoppy citrus. Not as overwhelmingly boozy as other bourbon barrel brews, but also not quite as full or complex.

Elizavyeta (110) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2007
A full bodied pour with a dark brown hue and strong head. The initial aroma seems light, even weak for such a hefty beer, but the flavor is nothing short of electric - smoke, toffee, chocolate, cola, and even a hint of fruit - comes in waves across the palate with a long lasting finish that leaves your tastebuds wanting more. Serve somewhat chilled for dessert with homemade vanilla ice cream.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Bottle shared by Jason. Black body under a foamy tan head. Roast, caramel and bourbon in the nose. The flavor centers around strong roast malt, green wood and green alcohols. Sour milk sweetness & vanilla backs this up. Pretty crappy stuff.
