4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours coal black with a light brown head. Flavor is sweet molasses with the whiskey barrel aging coming thru strong. You would never know it has a 17.1 abv. Nicely balanced with no burn. Nicely done!

Wow, just wow. Perfect balance between coffe, choclate and BA. Well hidden ABV. Pure class. sebletitje (10539) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2018
Bouteille 12oz, bottled 24/02/2017, batch# 6.
Brune foncée, presque noire, col café au lait, le tout sur léger doré au verre.
Arôme met de suite l'accent sur les quasi 15% de ce stout impérial, caramel, grillé, petite note de vanille en rétro avec note de cacao et chocolaté.
Palais est bien boozy, malté avec pas mal de grillé, chocolaté, petite note de chaleur, Bourbon bien là sans être trop dominant.
Petite rondeur de fin de bouche rappelant un peu la mélasse. Le côté vanille est moyen par rapport à d'autres versions Bourbon. kingaugusta (307) - Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2018
Pours near black with a quick tan head. Nose is a lot of oak and alcohol with some chocolate and dark fruit. Flavor is a very rich and surprisingly smooth considering the heat; finish is very long and malty. Excellent dessert or sipping beer. Voodoo (723) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2018
Poured the color of used motor oil with a light tan head which was gone quickly......aroma of booze, bourbon, molasses, licorice....taste is thick and follows the aroma, licorice, bourbon, molasses, oak, booze with a touch of heat late. It is 8F degrees outside, this works well tonight. luttonm (7077) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Tan head, very dark brown body, quite heavy. Roast meat on nose, soy and molasses, bourbon. Smooth and rich with very nice, spicy bite. Drinks a hair lighter than the weight suggests. Balanced molasses and soy in body. Very, very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 Bottle 2015: Pours a deep, near opaque black with a surprisingly dense and well retained tan head. Nice malty aroma. Chocolate, molasses, sweet vanilla bourbon and mild oak. Slick body. Some apparent alcohol, lots of sweetness upfront. Some roast and licorice in the middle with touch a hint of roast towards the back and more alcohol/booze on the finish. A big beer that lacks complexity and balance. GTAEgeek (2569) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2017
2012 bottle. Pours black, with a small, bubbly, brown head. Baking chocolate, earth, caramel, oak, and a touch of red wine. Very sweet and lightly bitter. Heavy body, with an oily, grainy, and harsh mouthfeel. Just decadent. Might be past its prime, though. Cybercat (6423) - Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2017
Pours coffee brown with a nice tan head. Aroma offers coffee, sweet, roast malt, chocolate and caramel tones. Flavor presents caramel, sweet toasted malt, chocolate and coffee notes. Mouthfeel features firm body and peppy fizz. Love your uncle - I should because I have one in North Carolina! RasmusOtt (2961) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2017
