English: A very smooth version of Xbeeriment Black Force One with complex notes of maple syrup and oranges from the Bourbon blending in with the roastiness and hoppiness of the imperial stout. An extremely complex beer. Only 375 bottles made.

The bourbon and smoke did not meld well together here, and I love smoked stouts as well as bourbon barrel stouts. Something is waaaay dry on the smoke side, and the barrels weren’t really picked up as much as the booze flavors themselves. Not terrible, but kinda meh.

Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Smoked malts with big, busty bourbon on the nose, even some soy sauce. Taste is bourbon, Islay whiskey, roasted grains, All Beasts Come Out At Night. Huge Standout!

From old notes. From tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Black with beige head. Roasted malty aroma, chocolate, coffee, wood, vanilla, alcohol. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium to full oily body with soft carbonation.

A quite good bourbon barreled stout, quite intense. Pours a deep black with a light tan head. Smells of chestnuts, cedar, smokiness and tart plums. Taste is a bit like port, with chestnuts roasting upon an open fire, with some smokiness, bourbon and plums. Pairs well with Buffalo Cheese. Had in the bottle.

Bottle. Pours black with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of sweet dark grains with some roasted malts, a decent amount of smoke and a bit of bourbon. Flavor has a good amount of smoke and roasted malts with some dark grains and a bourbon finish.

On tap at Tap and Handle. Appearance: finger tan head, black color, opaque. Aroma: prune, chocolate, light cherry, roast, roast, light chilli sweetness maybe? Palate: average carboantion, full body, dry finish, oily carbonation. Taste: sweet malty chocolate into fruity prune and maybe chillies, light booze on end. Overall, super unique, balance is phenomenal. Very good.

Thanks northopfrye for this. Really nice stout. Pours black with rich looking mocha head. Aromas of lactose, dried fruit and bright red berries. Roasted malts too. Flavors are sweet and syrupy. Almost like a brandy. Dark chocolate and hops. Not getting a lot of the bourbon notes... But still a great stout

Dark black body with foamy brown head and nice lacing. Nice sweet and roasty aroma. This is not such a smokey beer as the name suggests. I think the bourbon masks some of the smoke which is this case results in a really nice balanced flavourful beer. Great stuff.

Bottle. Very dark brown/black with a tan head. Sweet chocolate, vanilla, brownies, smokey peat, earthy, bourbon, oak, and somewhat sugary. Tasty smokey stout. Well worth trying.
