aroma is bourbon, appears dark with little head retention, taste is bourbon, very good beer wish i had more
This beer is enormous. Pours jet black with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma is sweet, almost cloyingly so. Some tannic bitterness is prevalent as well. Oak aging is evident in the taste, some heat from the alcohol is apparent. Pretty good, worth a try dizchic77 (3) - - FEB 18, 2018 does not count
Very pleasant aroma and flavor. Not usually a stout fan but this won me over.

If I had actually had this beer it would have been great. It has an interesting aroma of wine and bourbon, full bodied oily mouth feel with a distinctive bourbon taste. A light boozy bourbon finish. Koelschtrinker (22708) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 6, 2018

So, this was okay. I generally really enjoy imp stouts but the flavor on this just didn't live up to the billing. Glad I had a sample rather than shell out $20+ for this. Inbreak (7002) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2018
02.02.2018, 0,75l bottle (best before September 2017) sampled @ Bergen International Whisky & Beer Festival:Iznogud (5056) - CROATIA - JAN 7, 2018
Nice light brown slightly bubbly-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich and sweet, dark malts, dark sugar, oak, bourbon, caramel, hay, vanilla, booze, bark, cocoa, coffee. Taste is slightly dry boozy, weeds, oak, minerals, dark malts, bark, bourbon, hay, cocoa, harsh vanilla, fruit stones, burnt coffee. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly watery and harsh boozy mouthfeel. Fair enough.
Cask at Rattle n Hum West, NYC. Pours black, minimal beige head. Strong coffee nose, chocolate, strong bourbon character, warming, sweet, smooth. Low carbonation, almost flat. Medium bodied. Lacks body and thickness IMO. rondphoto (4582) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 5, 2018
on tap @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Aroma of burlap and malt. Opaque black, brown head that sinks to a heavy rim, bands of lace. Taste is lightly roasted malt that grows into an alcohol laced swallow. Bittering is already present, so all that's left is a long lingering finish. Good stuff. commonmac (1397) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2017
On tap at Happy Gnome with Highendtully. Stupid bowling pin glass. Pitch black with minimal head. Aroma is chocolatey and even more chocolate. Taste follows suit with deep rich chocolate taking center stage. A hint of whiskey peat bringing an alcohol punch. A little one dimensional but vanilla comes into play towards the end. An interesting rendition of a chocolate stout but not quite as a good as I wanted.
