3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark reddish brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee and earthy aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet dark chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good beer and my expectations where exceeded.

Deep black beer with a good head. Strong empyreumatic aroma. Taste of sugar and torrefied coffee, maybe a litle too torrefied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Glougouburp. These are the kind of extras this guy sends. Thanks Dany. Pours thick and mostly black with a good sized head on top. Thin wisps of lacing slide along the sides of the glass but do not stick. The aroma shows a lot of milk chocolate, mocha, and marshmellow at first with wood and some traces of dried dark fruit following. This is a medium to full-bodied Imperial Stout. The palate is very creamy and roasty but not really all that bitter. Lots of burnt ashy notes here though. Chocolate seems to be the biggest flavor. I notice more dark fruit flavor than in the aroma with dates, raisins, and figs. Even some black licorice. Bourbon and wood notes add depth. I actually didn’t pick up any bourbon in the aroma but it’s here. The bourbon, wood, chocolate, and dark fruit all combine well for a solid finished product, although the burnt ashy flavor is a tad strong for my liking. Perhaps not the most exciting or complex Bourbon Imperial Stout but still a very good one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2011 May 2010 bottle. Holds it’s bobbly brown head for a fair time. Little carbonation once it dies down. Nose has a strong bourbon presence, with dark fruits and espresso mingling. Decent body. Very roasty on the sip with a hit of bourbon and heat. A little cocoa and chocolate too. Reminds me of old rasputin. Whether the bourbon is to the advantage or hinderence of the beer is open to debate. Not overly complex and ever so slightly bland for the style, but a decent Impy all the same.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Pours tar black with a mid-sized, creamy, lightly tanned head that never cries “uncle.” The nose is chock-full-of molasses, licorice, anise, rooty herbs and bourbon. Medium-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and ditzy carbonation. The flavor is burnt and fairly bitter, but otherwise thin and uncharacteristically bland. Singed, bitter, licorice finish. Bottle courtesy of Glougouburp!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
[3675-20110409] 341mL bottle. Rich date-like roasted malt aroma is heavy with darkly roasted fruit skins. Black body with a medium-lasting thick and foamy dark brown head. Initial roasted nut shells and figgy dates flavour follows up with intensely burnt toast grains and a long sweet aftertaste. Thick full body. Interesting to sample, fair balance but for the burnt notes; would try again. (6/4/7/4/13) 3.4~
