DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Bottle from Stoudt’s. Pours onxy with a big dark tan head that reapeears with every repour, ending uo looking like the remnants of a chocolate milkshake at the finish. The aroma is roasty dark patent malty, with some roasty notes, plus some dark chocolate, almond, slight rauchy, and molasses notes. Medium to somewhat dense palate heft, with flavors of initial roasty malt, mid-palate chocoff, molasses, slight spiciness, and some tobaccoey notes. Notable complexity, good balance, and a wonderful accompaniment to a Partagas 160 cigar.

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2006
Poured an opaque black color with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, oak, chocolate, roasted malts, with toffee, some lactose, and very faint bourbon. The bourbon, however was kept even further in the background in the taste. Roasty, chocolatey, oak, with vanilla bean, nougat, and light alcohol. Velvetty mouthfeel.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2006
750ml bottle shared courtesy of egajdzis. Poured a dark black color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of wood, light whisky, oats, vanilla, caramel, and chocolate. Tastes of wood, light oats, vanilla, chocolate, roast, and very light bourbon. The barrel aging was well done in this one.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle... This beer rocks! Pitch black ale with a large, fluffy, dark khaki head. Excellent, creamy retention. The aroma is simple and divine; milk chocolate and coconut. Well-balanced with lightly singed, mildly bitter notes that keep the beer’s sweet mocha/coconut/caramel symphony of flavors finely tuned. Medium to full-bodied and spritzy. Chocolaty, creamy-smooth finish. Cheers to hopdog for sending this world class beer to me!

(MANY THANKS TO HOPDOG FOR SENDING ME THIS!!)beautiful black body with a thick light borwn head that leaves nice webbing as it sits.aroma is full of whiskey,oak and vanilla.its then followed up by some oatmeal,chocolate chip cookies,and chocolate.flavor is a rush of whiskey,vanilla,and oak just as the aroma was.as the beer warms some of the other characteristics come out such as the chocolate etc.mouthfeel is full but a little fizzy.this is yet another really nice barrel aged impy stout.

Bottle shared with Odeed from Hopdog; Nose of bourbon, coffee, chocolate; opaque black with a big, nice lacing tan head; flavor of oats, chocolate, bourbon (much less than in the nose, and nice oak woodiness.

Poured real dark and oily with a thin tan head. It smelled like the usual, heavy stout with chocolate and coffee hints but had a mildly lofty oatmeal scent as well. The taste was pretty much right on with the smell, and it went down extremely smooth for how heavy it was. Definitely a great stout.

jake65 (2544) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - FEB 3, 2009
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.

caresville (106) - Vernon, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2009
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.

750ml bottle. Thanks for egajdzis for sharing this one! Oaky smell and slight bourbon hinting from the glass. Nice size head with dark body. Flavor is very smooth with a blend of vanilla, oak, and a well hidden bourbon character. Nutty and well balanced. A very nice imperial by Stoudts. Cheers!
