25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan head that leaves cool tracery. Nose is molasses, bourbon and dates with light soy and smoke. Smooth medium body with a tang, finishing hot like a shot. Taste is dark chocolate, bourbon and watery roast.
Tap @ bishop’s arms, savoy Malmö. 2016 edition @ 11%. Pours an almost black liquid with a small beige to brown head. Aroma has intense but balanced bourbon and vanilla notes. Also coffee, dark chocolate, wood, sweet licorice, raisins, dates,booze, port wine, tobacco. Mouth feel is big with a rather smooth palate, good taste duration and medium carbonation. Flavor starts out with coffee, vanilla, "bourbon booze" , licorice, tobacco, vinous raisins. Finish has increasing levels of wood, licorice, roasted malt. Nice chocolate and coffee like bitterness in the aftertaste along with warming booze. rollsrace (81) - - DEC 18, 2015
Seems barrel heavy some bourbon notes. Slightly flat. Pours black with little head. No overpowering flavors. Goes down easy for an imperial stout. Has an earthy finish. toxichop (597) - South Gate, California, USA - NOV 28, 2015
2015 Bottle Pours completely black with a thin light brown head. Smell of rubbing alcohol, oak, molasses, and bourbon. Taste is of whiskey, oats, a hint of spice, a hint of vanilla, with a bit of soy in the finish. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin for the style. Almost no carbonation. Overall it goes down pretty smooth but not with the best flavors. Ferris (15013) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle - Nice barrel notes and roast. Deep jet with a beige head. Sweet, Woody notes and some chocolate with a touch of coconut. Barrel heavy, but decent. andrewje41 (3763) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2015

Black color. Dark caramel and wood aroma, some glue too. Good body strength, yet the mouthfeel is lean; nice degree of sweetness; the dark malt and dark chocolate flavor is very nice, with a touch of marshmallow in the end. Alcohol warmth.
500mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is very complex, with notes of oak, vanilla, bourbon barrels, and chocolate. Flavour is along the same lines, with lush notes of vanilla, bourbon barrels, chocolate and some oak. Super cohesive and complex, with not too much sweetness. Barrel aging done to perfection. Really excellent. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2015
bottle, nice big roasty ashy stout. Light on the bourbon barrel flavors. Bitter and very roasty finish. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"NO sign of 12% anywhere in this brew. Body was big, but not sticky or alcoholic. Not as deep as the best imperial stouts, but the bourbon aging was very nice - lots of vanilla, chocolate, and oak...and an odd but nice graham cracker flavor. Pretty nice rendition of a barreled stout."
