Clear dark black colour with a average, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, alcohol - bourbon, light wood. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, chocolate, roasted, sweet malt bourbon. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light to moderate alcoholic. 
Bottled (from Ales By Mail). Pitch black colour more or less, with a huge brown foamy head. Aroma is quite sweet ripe fruity/cherryish notes with mild vanilla and some dark sugary and wooden notes. Flavour is quite similar with mild smoked notes. A bit of an alcoholic sting in the flavour, but not disturbing. Actually quite nice balance. Interesting dryish palate. madmitch76 (26440) - , Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013

Opaque black - brown beer. Big pale tan head. Palate is slightly soft and semi dry. Mellow dark malt. Nice mellow bourbon with just a little wood. Mild minerals and mild spicy bubblegum ester - well buried. Mellow vanilla. Finishes dry. A good BA Impy but lacks that wow factor of the best.

Bottle at Bruce’s, London - massive thanks to Jack. Pours deep brown with a fine, creamy beige head. Boozy dark fruits in the nose, some chocolate. Big sweet flavor, jammy dark fruits, some burnt wood, hints of vanilla, mellow roast. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Light warmth to finish, burnt wood, ripe and dried dark fruits, dark malts, bit of booze. Not bad overall.

Bottle at home (from Bristol Beer Factory online) 04/12/12.
Mid black pour with a dirty tan head that clears to the edges as bubbles and leaves a small film atop the glass.
Nose is roast malts, milk chocolate, light wood, touch of bourbon.
Taste comprises roast malts, milk chocolate, wood tones, a little booze, molasses, a little leather.
Mouthfeel is par excellence - fine carbonation, smooth on the palate leading to a sweet and roasted boozey finish.
A really well made Imperial Stout in which the alcohol is well disguised. FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2013
330ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Fest2013)Scopey (16277) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2013
Nice vanilla aroma. Classic bourbon, but not boozy bourbon. Some butter from the wood too. Lovely. Black, small ring head. Lovely smooth palate, sweet apple retronasals. Lovely sweet body, but not sugary. Nicely roasted, but no ashiness. Some dark choc in the finish. Gets a bit dryer in the palate later, but the aroma if anything improves. Delicious.
Bottle @Bruce’s, thanks to jackl. It pours opaque dark brown with a small tan head. The nose is chocolate, roasted malt, toast, earth, toasted coconut and vanilla. The taste is roasty, toast, charred wood, light vanilla, fudge, caramel and light booze. Medium-full body and fine-moderate carbonation. Flavoursome, well-balanced and tasty. Probably the best of the BBF stouts. Stuu666 (15248) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2015
