For me I have to count his as my number one beer that I have enjoyed to date. Found it on tap at Tribes in Tinley park illinois. Color aroma flavor was exactly as expected from this stout but the perfect level of oaky barrel flavor was spot on for me. rxeight (3083) - Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2014
On tap. Black with a thin tan ring. Aroma is light bourbon and coffee. Caste is bourbon coffee and chocolate. Touch of molasis and dark fruit. Some heat on the back end. Creamy palate. Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pours black with tan head that rings around the glass. From draft. Sweet whiskey aroma. Molasses in nose and taste. Fig and dried plum with toasty malt in the finish. Slight alchy heat as well. mcberko (17830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
On tap at Apex, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lactose notes, chocolate, oak and roast. Flavour packs some serious heat, with loads of alcoholic boozy heat, wood, roasted malt, lactose and cocoa. Quite boozy, packing quite the burn, though well-structured. Drinkable in very small amounts. Good stuff. williamstome (1875) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Deep black pour, small brown head. Big bourbon aroma, intense flavor of bourbon, oak and chocolate. Creamy full body.

On tap at the EBF Saturday
Barrel aging is evident.Big rich sweet roasty chocolate and caramel, nice brew. EricTeusink (700) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Thanks to the wife for agreeing to head over the Argosy, where this was pouring, for dinner. Pours nearly black with minimal head. Candy, booze, chocolate, coffee, and smoke on the nose. Big sweet front with nice carbonated hop back. Thick. Flat in appearance, but surprisingly well carbonated. Draft - Argosy - Atlanta, GA mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Very nice. What I like is that the aging is apparent, but doesn't overwhelm. As such the base stout comes through nicely.

Draft at uber. Pours jet black with virtually no head or lace. Big roasty earthy chocolatey nose. Sticky thick body, low carb. Earthy sweet roasty chocolatey mid palate. Long earthy finish. ACHops (1584) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2014
On tap @ Uber. Pours thick pitch black with super thin mocha head. Aroma is giant dark roasty chocolate malt, aged bourbon, and strong coffee, booze emanating from it. The nose on this beer jumps out of the glass... Taste is big juicy chocolate, rich creamy malt, light soy sauce notes, just enough hops to keep things in balance, and thick sweet bourbon flavor that lingers in the finish. Huge beer. Not quite as nuanced as the best imperial stouts, but this is appropriately large and flavorful. Monster beer. This has piqued my interest in Against the Grain...
