On tap at Hamilton’s as BA Stoopid Stout. Pours a deep black with a tan ring. Aroma of sweet malt and sharp whiskey. Taste starts off sweet, of malt, caramel, and molasses, then picks up more whiskey, wood, and alcohol flavors. Huge lingering whiskey and wood tastes. Fantastic. wetherel (1888) - Cupertino, California, USA - OCT 20, 2008
I got to try 3 BA imperial stouts today. GF, CBC, and BA Yeti. They are all different and good in their own way. The CBC had the most (lots) of bourbon barrel characteristics: oak, some oxidation. Black creamy head. Sweetish. A hint of booze. Excellent. Almost equally highest rated of the three. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2008

On-tap at the CBC 12th Anni Party. Pours viscous and dark brown/black with a minimal, whispy light brown head. Smells somewhat subdued, sweet malty with some wood and vanilla. Tastes slightly sour malty with some very nice vanilla and wood flavors. The sour might come from the bourbon and the wood. Full body, smooth carbonation.
