COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Over-the-top but surprisingly approachable, this twist on the classic style starts with several types of malted barley, rye, oats and wheat. Robust flavors of vanilla, espresso, whiskey, chocolate and roasted grain are balanced by hints of date and plum, with just enough hops to round it all out. Roughly one-third of the final blend is freshly brewed beer; the rest is aged for up to a year (or more!) in both first and second use whiskey casks.

flatmatt (1633) - Northville, Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2018
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a light tan head. Sweet molasses/brown sugar aroma, dark fruit, hinting at bourbon, with alcohol. Flavor also strong in the molasses, with bourbon, cocoa, dark fruit. A bit simplistic, but solid.

tapefuzz (953) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 4, 2018
12oz bottle. Pours dark dark brown with a moderate tan head. Aroma is sweet whiskey, vanilla, light coffee, light molasses, slight date, and traces of roast. Taste is whiskey, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, very light barrel, and a little bit of date. Boozy finish. Grain lingers - the only real weak point of the beer. Medium+ body. Soft carbonation. Sticky, creamy, thick mouthfeel. Bottle says 11.8%, not 11%.

3.9
CObiased (569) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2018
12oz bottle - pours a very dark brown with a silky tan head. Enticing aroma of roasty grain, whiskey barrel, a little chocolate, hint of coffee, molasses and vanilla. Soft velvety mouthfeel and a warming feeling going down. Really enjoyable flavors of whiskey barrel, chocolate, raisin, a hint of coffee and some booziness.

Terminus (3742) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Bottle Pours like most other Imperial stouts with some nice legs on the glass after every sip. nose is huge whiskey, vanilla, wood, dark malts (burnt, slight dark roast), Huge whiskey flavors on the palate but balanced with the huge dark malt base. Lots of roast, char, anise, vanilla and wood aging going on here. This is very nice. palate is robust and bold with a nice slick feeling, coating your throat as it goes down. Solid brew if you ask me.

Single from total wine. And damn if some do their single prices are not all jacked up. Last time I do that. Anyways. Pleasantly surprised here. Lots of vanilla and toasty esperesso. Bourbon sweetness and some raisin notes. Diverse and complex tasty.

PintTeam6 (2) - - JAN 2, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2018 Sweet and malty with a strong alcohol content. It has a slight bitter finish.

4.2
SolarSam (113) - Interlaken, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2018
Raisin and iron to the nose. Rich contact with the tongue, and it hangs on very well. Sweet, yes, but the grip of booze supports the cloying to the tongue. Sure there’s a barrel involved. Gotta love it. Woo Hoo! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
