Bottle. Pours a black body with a roast y yellow off white head. Malty and roast y body with espresso sweetness. Dark chocolate malt tones, and a mild wood and oak tone. Milk chocolate,a hint of pepper like spiciness maybe the wood and a cocoa bitterness to finish. Nice offering.

Another sweet ass bomber courtesy of the one and only ksurkin, thanks Ken. It pours deep inky darkness with mocha like head. The aroma is nice and rich and bold and smooth as well sending up big waves of caramel, fudge pudding, dark chocolate, vanilla wood notes, rich coffee goodness and some smooth bourbon notes. The taste is velvety smooth on the palate and creating such notes as smooth sweet fudge brownie, sweet coconut meat, veins of vanilla yum, sweet bourbon, smooth layers of black strap molasses and silky sweet coffee notes. Oh man, this is just yum-oh-lishious from front to back.

Guerde (1297) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2011
(bottle won in what turned out to be the catalyst for the free beer mania experienced about a month ago, and sent by the very generous ksurkin, thanks Ken!) Pours a very dark brown/black with a splotchy tan head. Aroma right off the bat indicates something is amiss. The familiar scents of green snap peas and green bell pepper greet the nose, along with stale coffee, smoke, bourbon, and oak. This is really an odd beer, as the nose indicated that the coffee would taste harsh and astringent, but the flavor is nothing but a great evenly roasted coffee profile backed up by a very nice integration of barrel to beer. Pleasant flavors of chocolate, vanilla, oak, and coffee all meld together well here. Flavors of chocolate brownie as well. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is appropriate. This is a very enigmatic beer, in that the aroma left a lot to be desired, yet the flavor itself was delicious. Thanks again Ken for the beer!

thirdeye11 (6151) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2011
(Bottle, party downstairs at Falling Rock) near black with no bubbles at all. Flat as a pancake! Nose of sweet coffee, cream, creme brulee, vanilla and rum. Smells nice! Taste of bourbon, rum, huge vanilla extract that just sticks out like a sore thumb, coffee. Syrupy sweet body, uncarbonated. Wanted to like it, but it was just ok.

sthlm (1289) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2011
[Bottle, thanks Guerde!] Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is really odd--lots of snap peas, and green bell peppers. Some char as well. Char again, chocolate, a little caramel, and coffee in the finish. Thick mouthfeel, smooth, long finish. Overall, a nice imperial stout, but the aroma is really lacking. Thanks again, Andy!

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2011
Bottle from sideshowe. Deep brown, almost black, in color with a ring of tan foam around the edge of the glass. Big sweet vanilla notes, with chocolate too. More bourbon notes and less coffee presence than I was anticipating. Taste is sweet but not cloying. More vanilla, chocolate, and some coffee. Creamy texture. Very enjoyable.

jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2011
Pours a dark black. Aroma is very sweet. Taste is almost opposite of my beers I drink - sweet up front, hop on back. Palate is a little thinner than normal imperial stout. Overlal a solid beer.

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2011
Very good beer. Nose is somewhat mild, slightly boozy coffee. Flavor is a ton of coffee, some vanilla from the bourbon and a hop finish. This is remarkable considering all the flavors and that Im drinking a bottle thats a year old. Mouthfeel is medium, not as heavy as some imperial stouts but it never lacks taste. Finishes hoppy. Overall high quality and I was quite happy with it.

chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Mystery beer...Bottle poured into a perfect pint glass...Dark brown, light black pout with a tan head that rises quickly but lacking in retention. A few spots of lacing...A really nice aroma of chocolate, wood and cherry...The taste is like the aroma chocolate with coffee, cherry, and a bit of the barrel. A weird finish, that kind of kills it, acidic...The feel is too thin for, pretty easy to drink. Didnt know what to expect here but not bad at all.

Boutip (6208) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2011
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice medium size dark brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of very nice aromatic coffee notes with some light bourbon notes and light vanilla. Taste is a very smooth mix of bourbon and aromatic coffee with well rounded roasted malt with light vanilla and bourbon finish. Body is quite full with nice creamy texture and some good carbonation. Very well brewed with great balance and easily drinkable while being quite complex at the same time.
