jake65 (2847) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle, Boise imperial stout tasting. Very dark brown, near black pour with a thin brown cap. Modest nose is sweet, vanilla and cocoa hints of bourbon. It’s boozy, but not in a bad way. Rich flavors of chocolate and vanilla. Sweet, but not cloying. Over the top at 19.5% ABV, but really really good for what it is. Many thanks to syndicate for sharing this.

burg326 (4298) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Poured a black color with aromas of chocolate and bourbon. Flavors are chocolate vanilla and bourbon. Big sweet, sticky, chocolaty, boozie, and diabetes all in one in a bottle. Split with my father in law one hell of a night cap.

McNeillR (1576) - SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Thick opaque brown, greasy light lacing. Full on bright boozy, coconut choc and nippy blackberry. There’s a lot but it’s quite a scramble. Bourbon features but lean and sweet beneath a burp of hot, boozy choc. Cloying enough but soft and creamy sweet for all the ABV going on. Finishes eases in some blackberry and dusty cacao linger. A lot, mostly delicious but fairly.

Bottle, Thanks GLASGOWTAD, TAD Tasting

Sebilinz (785) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle shared by MisoW. Black body with nearly no tan head. Very rich aroma of chocolate and some vanilla and alcohol. Taste is sweet chocolate with some coffee and alcohol and hints of liquorice and hints of vanilla. Aftertaste is alcohol coffee chocolate. I usually don’t like to much alcohol but this was nice an ideal bottle to share.

BBB63 (6364) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Backlogged rating, Bottle share: Pretty much looks like every big bad Impy from Bruery, opaque with small head and oily tears. Huge chocolate covered boozy cherries candy and a bit of a white russian too. Roasted walnuts, charred barrel, touch of dark fruit and a hint of pepper. Rich and lush mouth feel that is cleansed by the massive alcohol. Another where even 2 ounces is hard to finish. Oh so sweet and decadent. Better than Mocha Wednesday but less than Black Tuesday or Gray Monday.
