2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is probably a good beer...but we donít like whiskey...soooooo we donít like this beer. Itís aged in whiskey barrels and Iím pretty sure those barrels were full at the time. Pretty sure the vapors are flammable! Take their Heretic beer (which is great) pour whiskey into it...and youíve got this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the bottle very dark, almost black, opaque. Aroma has touches of chocolate, vanilla and just a hint coffee and alcohol. Flavor was lots of dark roast malt, vanilla, and some dark fruit. Palate was thin. Overall, a good beer.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle: Mostly black pour, some dark brown near the top with a foamy, rich tan head that slowly settles to a foam. Aroma of tart red apple, grapes, & a strong, sour acetic & vinegar note. Slight dark malt? But this thing is infected as fuck & smells gross. Flavor isnít as bad... Burnt caramel, rich milk chocolate, but thereís still a big acetone tartness, vinegar, & a sour dark fruit finish. Gross. Goddamn nasty infected shit.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Really good. The subtleness of the oak blends perfectly with the malty and licorice flavor of the imperial stout.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is jet black with a tight caramel head that dissipates quickly. Nose is assertive bourbon, slightly harsh, heavy roast, slightly acrid, very sugary. Ouch, taste is rough, heavily acrid, burnt malts, extremely sweet finish, body is thin, empty in back, light carb, slick oily feel.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with a one finger khaki head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, oak, coco, tobacco, dark fruits, caramel sweet malts, and some anise. Taste is of good bourbon aged stout with a lot of nice oak, whiskey, roasted malts, vanilla, coffee, licorice, dark fruits, and just a little booze in the finish. Has a medium-full body with a creamy, oily mouthfeel and a slightly bitter, semi dry, long, lingering, slightly warming finish. Overall, a pretty nice bourbon barrel aged stout that isnít too boozy compared to similar beers of the style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours black with a khaki head. Aromas of roasted malts, bourbon, chocolate. Strong alcohol taste (cheap vodka), roasted malts, oak. Creamy, full mouthfeel. Medium bodied with a bitter finish. For me, it is a bit hot and doesnít live up to the aroma.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a nice deep brown to black color with a light tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, very faint hint of barrel. Flavor is a well rounded roasted malts, light vanilla, cocoa, bourbon character, that really comes out more as it warms. Wish there was a bit more barrel presence, but this is certainly a solid beer. Especially for the low price tag!
