ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Gription79. Aroma: lots of chocolate, nice mellow whiskey notes, coffee and roast malts, a touch of sweetness. Appearance: pours jet black, about a half inch of brown head with surprising retention, leaves some lacing. Flavor: big chocolate and coffee up front, caramel and toffee, moderately high bitterness and roast character, some spicy whiskey. Palate: full body and light-medium carbonation. Very smooth/silky on the palate, almost along the lines of a nitro stout. Overall: a really fantastic stout, happy I got to try this.

pushkinwow (1842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
750ml bottle from Alen. Dark brown with a nice mocha/brown head that reappears upon a nice swirl of the glass. Whiskey, light oak, vegetables, roasted malts. Still a little hot, moderate body and carbonation, somewhat sweet with a bitter bite probably more from the alcohol then anything else, long tasty whiskey and stout finish.

(trade w/douglas88) - Dense dark brown head. Dark black body. Aroma of bitter cocoa and dark brown sugar. Thick mouthfeel. Flavors of brown sugar and molasses. Light vanilla and toasted coconut from the barrel aging. A slight warming in the throat. A very nice Imperial Stout. Will be added to my "Trade for again" list!

Thanks to mar and thirdeye11 for sharing these bottles. The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma has a ton of chocolate and oak, as well as some bourbon and some alcohol. The flavor is very similar. I get some heavily roasted/burnt malt, as well as some bourbon and oak notes. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
