650 ml bottle at Sander's place courtesy of Sander, many thanks! Pours a nearly black dark mahogany with a light brown head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, hazelnuts and caramel. Full body with a soft carbonation, a light to medium bitterness and a light to medium sweetness along with some noticeable alcohol. The flavor is similar to the aroma with more bourbon character, sweetish roasted malt, cocoa, dark chocolate and lots of mild coffee. Finishes with wood, bourbon, vanilla and some sweet roasted malt. Delicious!

650 ml bottle shared by Sander, many thanks!
Black body, with a medium, creamy, dark fruits head.
Aroma of bourbon, melting dark chocolate, coconut, coffee,
Tastes similar, with subtle alcohol.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a low carbonation.
Finishes medium roasty, medium sweet, with dark chocolate, coffee, bourbon, cocoa.

Delicous! Very balanced and smooth to drink. Lovely chocolate and bourbon notes throughout. Not fully on par with the regular Speedway for me, but another outstanding Imperial Stout by AleSmith.

Aroma of chocolate, licorice, coffee, toffee, bourbon, caramel. Intense. Taste of custardy vanilla, licorice, chocolate sauce, nuts. Velvety mouthfeel.

dropi6 (718) - POLAND - JAN 10, 2018
Nice, dark opaque colour. Massive coffee, lot of whisky (completely different from bourbon flavours though) little bit of vanilla, litle sour, chocolate, cocoa, marzipan, caramel, some cookies. Very strong alcohol, as for 12% - no need to drink fresh. Nice texture, oily body, but little disappointing for the legend.

Bottle shared at Aaron's. A gusher. Dark Chocolate and coffee and a medium mouthfeel. Ok.

750ml bottle shared with brother at parents house. Aroma: typical Alesmith Bourbon aroma, vanilla, lots of chocolate, lots of complex coffee. App: really dark brown with some red / burgundy tint, minimal to no head. Taste and palate: full body, so so smooth, medium high sweetness, soft carbonation, light to moderate high bitter and alcohol finish probably coming from the coffee. Overall: this is so well made. I so love the nose of this beer. The bourbon is so much present just like the "regular" BA but with a great touch of coffee. Perfect balance! Excellent!

Pitch black pour, smaller tan head. Gobs of lace. Aroma of rich coffee, roasted malt, whiskey, fudge. Taste is nearly indescribable.... Fudge brownie, light bourbon, rich, freshly roasted and ground coffee, wood, light chestnut. Thick full body, oily mouthfeel, and not boozy in the least bit. Incredible!

baraciisch (3474) - California, USA - OCT 16, 2017
Dark black in color... Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, coffee, cocoa... Dark roasted malts, anise, vanilla, coffee, cocoa... really velvety mouthfeel... delicious, love the cocoa on the palate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
