UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Rerate of 2.0 version. Pours almost pitch black with a half finger tan head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, roasted malts, rye, vanilla, molasses, dark fruits, anise, woody notes, and some very light booze. Taste is of roasted malts, bourbon whiskey, dark fruits, caramel, anise, vanilla, nutty pecans, rye, dark chocolate, oak, and very light booze. Has a medium-full body with a oily, creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, long, lingering, only slightly boozy finish. Overall, a definite improvement over last years version making this a very tasty, complex, world class stout that does a better job then then vast majority of imp stouts of hiding a very high abv.

Aroma is pretty sweet for a stout. Good body with small bubbles. Chocolate flavors are good but lack of supporting roasted flavors. Finish is very long.

Bomber to a tulip glass. Pours black with a thick tan head and decent lacing. Aroma is chocolate, cherry and other dark fruits. A little rubbing alcohol. Taste combines all the smells with additions of vanilla, leather, spice/pepper and oak. Slight bitternrss in the aftertaste. A creamy, slightly oily mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stone never disappoints me....cool bottle, got a limited release bottle which is cool. As for the beer, its strong, coming out hot, can’t really taste the alcohol but i would describe the flavor as sharp. Real intense/complex beer. As for the flavor, getting sort of a nutty chocolate vibe, bitter aftertaste, hints of coffee as well. Really intense stout, a definite sipper, lives up to the imperial billing. Does taste barrel aged, I bet this thing would be even better 6 months out.

22 fl oz / 650ml bomber into a Samuel Adams glass (my snifter was in the wash; please don’t judge me). Served cool. Aroma: A strong aroma of HUGS. No really, it smells fantastic. Kind of subtle, but there’s quite a bit going on here. It smells dark and wonderful. Appearance: Completely opaque, inky, silky, sexy, dark brown body. A thin dark tan head caps it off. Taste: Man oh man. I don’t know where to begin. Let’s start off with what it doesn’t taste like. It’s not super boozy; you wouldn’t guess the ABV is 13%. It’s not a typical "coffee with hints of mocha and blahblah" imperial stout. There’s a little sinister booziness on the end of the finish. The arrival is a myriad of nice little flavors you don’t taste very often, and they play well together until that finish. I WISH I COULD UNDERSTAND MORE :( Open my beer eyes, Mr. Greg. Palate: Pretty creamy. Nice full body. Overall: So good so goooooooood. Lots of nice flavors.

ABUSEDGOAT (2354) - California, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Oh man was this exciting to find. Picked up 7/17, brew date 7/16. This is my 2nd bottle after having the first on 7/17. Black pour, small tan head with good lacing and retention. Nutty aroma with strong notes of licorice as well as chocolate, caramel, light oak from the barrel. Medium to full body, alcohol hidden very well. Loads of licorice, some nut in finish. Well made, but did not enjoy the flavors at all. Licorice is not my thing for stouts. For some people this will probably be amazing, but unfortunately not for me.

drowland (5992) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2013
7/20/13. 22oz bottle from Grassroots. Black pour with a small khaki head. Sweet, fruity aroma, nutty, almost doughnuts in a way, some bitterness and roast, toffee and molasses. More nuttiness in the flavor, bitter from it and roasted malts, big sweet middle with lots of toffee, caramel, more sweetness, and a dash of lingering dry, bitter roast. Sweeter than I was expecting. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours dark, tan head. Smells smokey, a hit of bourbon. Tastes rich, slightly bourbon, smokey, vanilla. Really exceptional! It is absolutely delicious!

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark thick black pour with thin but lasting caramel colored head, aroma brought notes of pecan pie, nutty notes hints of chocolate, roast, coffee, touch of spice, slight rye from the whiskey, touch of dark fruits as well. Taste is a mix of dark fruits, pecan, nuts, hints of caramel, toffee, hints of a sugary crust-like note, hints of whiskey but fairly subdued, finishing fairly sweet, slightly boozy. Pretty tasty.
