From cask. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is liqourice, roasted malty and light chocolate. Fruity, yeasty, light spiced and phenolic. Dark roasted caramelish and somewhat bitter.

Nose is bourbon, pecan, brownie. Flavor is like a bourbon-chocolate pecan pie. Heat is a tad too present and harsh.

RickTheRick (547) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Imperial Stout? 13% d’alcool? Vraiment? En tout cas, rien n’y paraît lors de la dégustation. Noire et opaque offrant une bonne mousse persistante, la bière présente un bouquet lourd et sucré de sucre à la crème et de chocolat fondant avec une touche de noisettes. En bouche, la texture est sirupeuse et et encore plus chocolatée, avec une légère caresse épicée en provenance du seigle. Le vieillissement partiel en barriques de bourbon n’est pas vraiment présent, à ma grande surprise, mais c’est bien correct comme ça. Un véritable dessert liquide.

This is w00tstout 1.0, purchased at the brewery at release in July 2013 ($8.95). Have had on draft a number of times, but this rating based on the almost 1.5-year-old bottle. Pours a thick dark brown but basically black hue with a half finger of quite dark brown cafe mocha colored head. AROMA of sweet-ish bourbon, campfire roasted marshmallow, smoky roasted malts, thick vanilla, and brown sugar. FLAVOR of nutty bourbon, mellow dark malts, dark toffee, some port-like characteristics (sticky candied plum), cocoa powder-dashed pecan, butterscotch, molasses, and some dark chocolate. Vaguely sweet and full bodied with a thick mouthfeel. Has nice bourbon characteristics even though only a quarter was barrel aged. Some burn near the finish, but otherwise the really big 13% is nicely toned down...perhaps the year-plus of aging helped there. Was a pleasure on draft, but I kinda prefer this aged bottle.

stevoj (2648) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 6, 2014
2013 vintage. Robust, sweet, sticky and warm. Black body with tiny skin of a beige head. Aroma is roast grain and nuts and enough alcohol to send the nose twitching. Taste comes on strong, with plenty of alcohol warmth. Best sipped, allowing it to warm, and the flavors to emerge.
