Fantastic imperial stout. Quite sweet with whiskey and chocolate notes. Sweet and flat like syrop. Pretty strong and warm in the throat - the whiskey ageing helps.

Slightly sweet, malty, whisky barrel, vanilla, an absolutely wonderful beer. I only wish the finish was better, taste dampers off quickly with a strong abv ending. Would buy again

12 oz bottle poured to snifter. Sits black, very thin tan head caps the beer. Aromas of char, toasted, dark fruit, molasses and a wafting alcohol. Taste is nicely balanced anise, coffee...with hints of bitter baker;s chocolate, dark fruit, caramel/toffee....some molasses and vanilla push some sweetness towards the back and allow for some hops to swoop in on a bitter finish. Good stuff, if not a bit "safe" for my tastes! Ha!

Bottle Coffee, light wood ash, cocoa malt, and alcohol aroma. Dark brown with large tan head. Sweet chocolate malt, coffee ground, and moderately bitter herb and ash flavor. Decent body. Good but not very complex.

Great beer. This beer really doesnít have anything thatís a miss. Itís caramel malt really shines through. Itís tasty and smooth and a great overall ale. Dark pour with a brown/white head. Good lacing. I have had this and the bourbon barrel aged version and truly prefer this one. Enjoy my friends.

Pours a glass coating black with a thin lacing of head. Roasted and charred malt with chocolate and earthy aromas. Chocolate, roasted malt, nutty, earthy taste. Very good

A great extra from jsquire. This is a dark liquid, quite an aroma of intense coffee and dark chocolate. A little sweet, with a serious bite of bitter roastiness. Some alcohol burn. Very nice imperial stout.

"via trade with Cory. 2010 batch. lots of roasty toasty aroma and flavor. a little chocolate, licorice, coffee, and a present but slight hoppiness. pretty smooth at 9.7% though more tingly than the Fat Dog. overall, a nice beer, but not one that blew me away as i was hoping it would."
