Nearly black color with a brown head. Nice rich bourbon, light roast, chocolate, vanilla...tasty!

Bottle (#225)... This beer’s balls drag the ground!… Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet is a swirl of malt whisky, dark mocha and toasted oak barrel. Full-bodied and velvety with modest carbonation. The flavor offers heaps of charcoal and other carbonic notes, bourbon and dark sherry without nearly as much bourbon heat or malty sweetness as I was expecting. Bold, warming, Pappy finish. The Pappy nuance is lovely and unmistakable. Another world class rarity provided by the ever-generous landhoney! All barrel-aged imperial stouts should be aged in PVW barrels in my humble, yet correct, opinion.

Of note: I realize PVW is a Kentucky-brewed and distilled sourmash whiskey; but to me, Pappy has always smelled more like an Irish malt whisky or Macallan brand Scotch whiskey than a Kentucky corn-heavy bourbon.

hopdog (8769) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2013
Waxed bottle. Poured a black color with a tan head. Bourbon, wood, chocolate, vanilla, some earthiness, caramel, and roasty. Some alcohol - to be expected at over 12%, but goes down nice and easy. I want some more of this one.

Woodshed 3.0! Big thanks to dak for saving this whole series and sharing with us. Awesome!! Bottle pours with a dark brown body that supports a thin tan head. The mild aroma offers up smooth smelling residual sugars, molasses and sweetened dark roasted malts. There isn’t much barrel noticed in the nose. The taste is smooth and rich with a mix of dark roasted malts, a sliver of burnt malts, slippery residual sugars and dark roasted coffee. Behind those notes lurks a smooth mellow soft bourbon booziness. Nice.

This one poured a soy sauce brown with a small brown head. Aroma was fudge, Bourbon, roast and wood. Flavor wassimilar, very wellmelded together, a lot like the black magick but with a lot less burn.

TheEpeeist (3272) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2013
On tap at Bainbridge. Dark brown with minimal head. Nose is chocolate, roast, bourbon and plum. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is chocolate, bourbon, wood and dark fruits. A bit too much of the barrel but so smooth and still quite good.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle shared @ Woodshed 3.0 by way of Dak! Crazy generous dude! Dark mahogany pour with onyx, squid ink, and midnight at its core. Latte head. Surprised this didn’t stand up quite as well as its sister brew. Cocoa, vanilla, coffee, oak, and bourbon. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Clingy but not coating. Really good but not world class.

JStax (2772) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle pour. Pours a dark brown to black. Big bourbon notes on the nose with a heavy malt backbone. Chocolate and wood notes coming through as well in the taste. Viscous mouthfeel.

alobar (2713) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours tar black with an aroma of vanilla, roasted malt, and bourbon. Flavor of roasted malt, vanilla, dark fruit, and subtle but very present bourbon. One of the better beers I’ve had in a long time.

callmemickey (2469) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2013
The standout of the BBVD variations. Deep black body, thin tan head, minimal lacing. Assertive bourbon, oak, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and a little fudge. Full bodied, gentle carbonation, moderate booziness, lingering finish.
