Pours dark with medium latte brown head Aromas of dark malts, coffee, wee bit of bourbon, dark fruits Taste has brown sugar, vanilla, dark malts, figs, dades, raisins Palate starts out very well creamy, round and sweet but ends a bit boozy. A year in cellar would def improve tjis even more ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pitch black with a bubbly quickly dissipating light brown head. Lots of milk chocolate on the nose, some caramel, nuttiness, oaky, light hint of bourbon and booze, and a nice toasted malt note. Lots of booze on the taste of this one, not too bad though cause it fades away to a nice mellow nutty flavor, light bourbon notes, excellent dark bitter chocolate, there’s some oak and caramel, and a nice rye spiciness. Delicious all around. The way the ’special’ ingredients come together is very impressive.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 http://imgur.com/Z3wvmXV -- Bottle from Concealer. Pours opaque black with tan head that lasts and laces. Caramel and alcohol on the nose. Drinks easily for 13%. Drinks with an alcohol bite and mild lingering bitterness. Full bodied. Strong coffee flavors with a lingering woody flavor. Warming on the finish. Excellent for the ABV but I wouldn’t want more than a few ounces.

bottle. oily pour. black. small brown head. dark fruity esters from alcohol with roasted malt, caramel, fruitcake, nougat aroma. lots of toast and roast, but more interestingly tons of vanilla cake notes, candied fruit chews, and caramel. its deliciously sweet to battle the abv. not much hop presence for once in the style. full boded, velvety. i was beginning to think there wasn’t much room for variety in the imp stout catagory, but this reassuring and exciting....And then your mom goes around the corner and she licks it up.

Yummm! Chocolate caramel cola flavors are exploding all over my tongue. Find a little spice on the finish. Hides the alcohol well.

A dark brown cola like color with a a little khaki colored head at first pour that dissipates down to the rim and sticks around. Smells of alcohol, caramel, brown sugar, anise, rye, blueberry. Taste is all over the boards, I get an initial sweet rush of vanilla, caramel toffee that gives way to a coffee and roast with some rye and graininess and finishes with some hop bitter and roastedness. Fairly thick mouthfeel and alcohol is fairly well hidden but still wouldn't want to gulp. Overall very unique and delicious collabo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Brew-ligion. Black pour with a tan head. Really complex nose. Roasted malt, vanilla, oak, and whiskey. Candied plums, some smoke, and lots of licorice. Sweet flavor of licorice, burnt sugar, and candied plum. Roasted malt, whiskey, vanilla, and oak. A touch of smoke, cocoa powder, and grape candies.

vyvvy (3978) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Pours very dark brown with a thick tan / burnt orange head that’s quite soapy. The aroma has roast, cream, pecans, coffee, light bourbon, dark caramel and candy sugar. Comes off like a boozy pecan pie in stout form. It has a full rich body with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with very dark roasted malt, earthy hops, spiciness, bourbon, light nuttiness, graham crackers and sweetness. The finish has a bit of char and an abv punch, but it is 13%, so it’s not too surprising. Good collaboration beer.

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.
