wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Tasted at Patron Saints Angel Share Release. Bottle from deftim13. Tried with deftim13, brewboy1, Captaincougar, and others. JohnC, miketd, and WeeHeavy were here earlier, but left by this time. A little roasty. Initial taste I thought alcohol was well hidden, but then noticed it’s presence after a while. Very dark color. Small, small bubble head. A litttle cardboard in the aroma. Nice aroma of some mild oxidation and some chocolate. Bottled on 4/20/06. Bottle number 175/500.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2007
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with storng notes of chocolate, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, alcohol, wood, and vanilla. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

DialSquare (2625) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Black with thin tan head. Aroma of bitter chocolate, sugar and alcohol. Lots going on taste wise: mellow bourbon and oaky vanilla - oatmeal and dark bitter chocolate tastes with a little sweetness at the finish. I need another go at this one.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 pours deep dark brown with a brown head. head is a bit bubbly. has a bourbon zing to the nose, with coffee and pine. gentle carbonation. caramel, mocha, milk, some bitter smoke. can taste the oak barrel. pretty thin for an imperial stout. very good.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Very vinous, alcoholic nose. Pours with a tan head that eventually dissipates into nothingness, but it takes awhile. Taste is bourbony and kind of thin, but it is actually quite decent and quaffable. I would have liked a bit more maltiness out of this, but it was actually still pretty respectable.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Bottle courtesy of hopdog. Very reminiscent of Black Gold Bourbon, but w/ less malt and alcohol. W/ a little bit more of the 2, this beer would be excellent.

5000 (6257) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle: Pours black, large fizzy head, tremendously large bubbles that dissipate quickly, sparce lacing.   Soft whiskey nose, very slight aspects of roasted malts, graham cracker, and alcohol.   First thing I notice with this one is that it is rather thin, or should I say not that big for a Stout, even an Oatmeal Stout.   Notes of Whiskey, soft roasted malts, and you guessed it, alcohol.   Its not hot, but somewhat warming.   Slight aspects of bakers chocolate and oatmeal.   Not much of an Imperial Oatmeal Stout if you ask me.   Biggest complaint would be that its not all that big.   Little bit of fig/raisin/date after the finish.   Decent beer, just not full enough.   Too thin, and perhaps a bit too simple.   I prefer the other Two Fat Dogs to this one.   Thanks Steve for the bottle!

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Bottle from Markgugs. Getting on one year old, now. Whiskey roast aroma. Licorice and anise. Not the greatest. Warm, balanced roastiness and slighty whiskey in the flavor, a touch of oak and a little vanilla. Not great cold but quite nice warm -- as usual with imperial stouts. Palate unfortunately is very harsh, rough to put down... overcarbonated and lacking body. An enjoyable drink but not even close to the best BA ISs.
