Bottled. Black pour. Medium brown head. Nice lacing. Medium full mouthfeel. A little slick. Medium low carbonation. Nutty roasty nose. Pretty standard. Sweet, roasty malt. A little bit of pecan in the finish. Pretty nice Impy Stout. Looking forward to cellaring one for a couple of years. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

Tap. Dark pitch black pour with a thin mocha head. Vanilla, raisin, nuts, oak, cacao, coffee. Smooth full body with bitter but balanced finish. Very nice but 13 percents kicks you slowly.

Bottle. So right off the bat, the aroma of this is different, I swear it reminds me of Cocoa Pebbles cereal. The beer is well-bodied, and is uber-rich ... semi-bitter chocolate, oak, prune, and smooth nuttiness. Go easy ... the 13% comes on heavy. (#5183, 7/27/2013)

Bottle thanks to Huhzubendah. Thanks. Poured a nice dark brown color, head was a tan head, turns wispy. Alcohol legs. Aroma was some wheat notes, sickly sweet notes. Flavor was wheat, alcohol burn is there. A little hot, would be probably better aged a year or more.

Bottle from Nickís of Clinton in Waldorf, MD for $8.99. The beer is dark brown and viscous, sporting a thin, oily, beige head. The aroma brings oak, light roast, bourbon. Pecans are hard to discern in either the flavor or the aroma. More of a texture than a feature it would seem. Nice bready character from the addition of rye and wheat. Some bourbon heat, but overall, a really mild and easy sipping brew considering the 13% abv. Recommended.

Poured from a growler I got yesterday into a snifter. A: Pours looking rather sad and thin. Very little head from an aggressive pour. Otherwise a sludgy dark brown color. S: Smells sweet. Some rye definitely comes through. Otherwise chocolate is big on this one as well. Yes... sweet vanilla. T: Taste is very dynamic sometimes for better and sometimes for worse. At first this tastes amazing with notes of vanilla, a burbon sweetness. Then it fades into a rye note that is quickly replaces by a hodgepodge of super bitter and offputting flavors. Itís like a dull stale IPA hop taste or something. Like after you ate some really hot salsa and then let it simmer down for a bit but your still left with that weird lingering hot destroyed tongue. Very dry.... left me making a bleh this is gross face. Hopefully it will get better as it warms? P: For a brief moment amazing but then fades to bad then worse. Dry burning dull hop.... itís like when you walk outside into a lawn of freshly cut grass and you can barely breathe because all the grass smell. Itís kind of like that. Overall this is just not a good beer (could you tell from the above comments?) it has some interesting stuff going on but the rest of the beer is just out of control and the nice flavors. If you got a bottle this thing needs to be cellared to help dull it down. Itís gonna be hard not to drain pour this one.

22 oz. bottle, pours jet black with a small tan head. Nose brings out toasted nuts, bourbon barrels, and a little caramel. Flavour brings out loads of bourbon, followed immediately by honey, some vanilla, and some mild roast. There is a hint of rye as well, but the wheat is completely buried. The bourbon is dominant, almost completely overtaking the flavour profile -- it works beautifully. The ABV is exceptionally well-worked in. The finish is bourbon and a touch of booze. Excellent stuff.

Bottled June 25, 2013.
Appearance: The body is pitch black with no head even with a hard pour. What is coaxed out is a thin tan ring with a very thin and sparse coating.
Aroma: Initially the aroma is muted with a butter pecan ice cream aroma, prominent yet faint. Once the beer warms up a bit cocoa becomes a prominent aroma with hints of bourbon. This reminds me a lot of vanilla butter cream pecan ice cream with chocolate syrup drizzled on it. The aroma is still muted in a way, but it smells good.
Taste: The flavor is buttered pecan right away, with a very syrupy caramel flavor that leads to a slightly dry oaky and nutty finish, like chewing on a pecan. Bourbon lingers on the finish.
Palate: Thick and syrupy.
Overall: This is very interesting, it instantly reminds me of buttered pecan ice cream with caramel and cocoa aromas and flavors, but it comes off muted. Perhaps a few months in the cellar will do this good, allow the flavors to settle out.
