On tap at Taco Mac. Pours deep walnut with mocha head which dissipated fairly quickly. There is little lacing. Malty Roma with the sweetness of bourbon (but actually fairly subtle) along with oak and cherries. Taste is sweet with the bourbon flavor more pronounced than in the aroma, yet not overwhelming. Oak and dark fruit permeate as well. Full bodied with an oily, slick mouthfeel and low carbo. Overall, really nice beer - bourbon barrel aged, but the bourbon only plays a supporting role here - although becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Abv of 13 percent is well hidden, but warms you up!

Sample at the Aces & Ales Winter Beer Fest on 01/16/2015. The beer pours brownish-black with a medium thin beige head that recedes steadily to a dense film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Full-bodied with flavors of smoked malt, roasted nuts, bittersweet chocolate and coffee. The finish is roasty with a charred malt aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

Boozy chocolatey aroma. Deep brown-black color w tan head. Nice amount of bourbon booze character up front followed by a pronounced chocolatey finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

toffsbury (115) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2015
Incredible. Toasty aroma of bourbon, wood, and toasted marshmallow. Thick and black, thin brown head, and a massive flavour of toffee, nuts, chocolate, and bloody good stout. Sweet with just a touch of bitterness lurking behind it. A slow sipper that I wish I had a case of.

Tons of rye peacan, dark chocolate, a touch of bourbon, malty amazingly well hidden alcohol. Smooth. A touch of dark fruit and licorice. Slightly salty. Amazing.

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

had this on draft last year at brewdog. very dark black velvet appearance with stable tanned head. aroma of coffee, alcohol, chocolate and dark malts. very smooth mouth feel but the high alcohol content wasn’t hidden.

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.
