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.

opaque, inky black with a thin mocha head. the smell is quite powerful as soon as the cap was off. very vinous, but also roasty. smells sweet. tastes very creamy and sweet. nougat, chocolate, irish cream, cherry cordial. madeira. this is pretty yummy! especially considering that it was $5.99 per bomber at Country fresh. Right on!

Poured from bomber into snifter. Dark brown/ black with light brown head thay diminishes quickly. Smell is lots os sugar, syrup, and toasted malt with a little bourbon (my brother: "I can smell the barrel"). Taste is very sweet, with some chocolate and faint bourbon flavors, and some roasted coffee in the finish. Feel is a little thin for the style/ abv, but by no means unpleasant. Overall, its not bad. Definitely not the best, but solid.

AWISLguy (2450) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle from Ray’s in Tosa. Pours black (yes - as night) (as coal) with a brown head leaving streaky lacing. Aroma is big heavy vanilla-y bourbon. Later in the glass, there is caramel and chocolate. Taste has vanilla, bourbon, some chocolate, light roast, a hint of cherry and a - late showing under the bourbon - decent caramel malt presence. Full bodied and alcoholly. Finishes sweetly bourbon caramelly, with a slight touch of roast. Some brews have bourbon and show it, some have bourbon and blast it. Blast here, without the complementary components to aid for top quality. Not bad, but disappointing in that this could be so much more with a better base. 14.2

bought this in asheville if my memory isn’t to far gone from all the glue i sniff .. . very black .. bourbon, tar, oil, and sweet burnt g.i joes .. . the mouth is a but of a let down, especially with the boozy feel .. . still good though .. . . A car with a car rack looked like a police car, so I slowed down, only to realize I had been tricked into obeying the law FOR NO REASON.

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.

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.

Courtesy boboski. Very deep, dask brownish-black color. Aroma is dried cherries, treacle, a touch of vanilla and oak, slight chocolate and alcohol. Bourbon aroma is very evident. Mouthfell is almowst chewy, very big beer. Moderately roasted and bitter, the bourbon blast is very evident, not a bashful beer.
