one of my favorite american imperial stouts. pours a deep dark brown, almost black with a nice little tan head that leaves pretty quick. you can for sure smell the whisky and alcohol on this thing, with notes of chocolate and malty goodness. tastes roasty and malty with that whisky touch coming back at the end.

75 cL bottle, courtesy of eyedrinkale. Pours dark brown to black with a collapsing tan head. Aroma is smooth whisky and slight wooden to a dark malt and fruity base. Dry and distinct wooden whisky touch. Roasted malt flavoured and fruity dry into a lingering mild whisky finish.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2009

Source:Sample from a 750 mL bottle at a Nashville tasting.
Glass:Taster.
Appearance:Poured a dark brown color with a small beige head.
Aroma:The aroma was pretty muted, with notes of bourbon, vanilla and licorice.
Flavor:Oats and licorice dominate, with a hint of vanilla and bourbon.
Palate: Medium/full body with mild carbonation.
Overall:This was the same watery mess as the regular. The carbonation was off and the body was too thin. The barrel aging was almost trasparent.

Thanks to hopsleeroy for sharing this beer! Pours black with light barely getting in. Short lived beige head. Smell is creamy vanilla, and bourbon. Taste is similar with chocolate fudge, but with a thin body and soft carbonation. Decent, but didnít knock my socks off. In fact, my socks stayed on.

Thereís a dog on the label so Iím already feeliní positive. Dark roast, some laundry detergent too. Dark brown. Standard character, even keel all around. Didnít think much of this beer, disappointed now that I see all of these high ratings.

Another brew I have to thank Dim for. The bottle poured into a dogfish head snifter. It produced a two finger worth of tan head that settled to a thick lace. The body of the brew was black as night no light coming through at all. This brew smell fantastic bourbon, chocolate and coffee are some of the many aromasí. That is just a start; some dark fruit vanilla and a slight earthiness are also present The flavor is really mellow nice grain sweetness, chocolate, vanilla, coffee among others. The feel is great in the mouth with ample carbonation. The regular fat dog is a favorite of mine and this just takes those flavors to a whole new level Great drinkability I am enjoying every drop I might even shed a tear when it gone. It was truly a treat to have this one thanks again Dim

Bottle: Dark brown pour, near black. Large tan head. Nose is sweet with bourbon and faded hops. A little roasty and cocoa. Tastes malty with bourbon notes, roasty and chocolatey. Really mellow barrel notes, which I am appreciating more these days.
