after4ever (7863) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2013
375, corked, capped, and waxed. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head that falls immediately away to not too much. Big sweet bourbony nose, some apricot showing. Lots of roast and coffee as well. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Roasty sweet coffee and black liquorice body. Long ashy roasty finish. Everythings here, everythings nice, not really a new spin on a style weve had a million times by now. Very good stuff. Just a lot like what everyone has done.

375 ml bottle at jsz, thanks mattias! Near black with tan head. Aroma is discreet, bourbon and light alcohol, roasted notes, cocoa, dark chocolate. Taste is medium bodied, bourbon alcohol, dark chocolate, woody, red grapes, cocoa, roasted notes with a boozy bourbon finish.

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Blackberry jam and molasses meet dark chocolate and roastiness in this suave Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the blackness with brownish hues.
-A touch of acidity balances out the sugars in the finish.
-Alcohol contributes to the roundness.
-Flavors are expressive throughout, but are never overwhelming.

Bottle.

Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, smooth dark chocolate. Well integrated fruity bourbon. Trace of vanilla. Smooth fruity bourbon finish. My kind of Imperial Stout, no tangy shit or bitter cocoa. just thick smooth malts and lovely barreling. Nice one.

beerplace (1316) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2017
375ml bottle from Elizabeth Station. Bottled on 2016-10-31. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, fruity notes, barrel. Taste is chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, just a little bit (but easy noticeable at the same time) spices in the background and slight booziness. Spices in the beer are just on the appropriate level, what a nice surprise! Everything is really good balanced in this beer - sweetness, both barrel and bourbon characters, spices. This beer is a reeeally good stuff!

Oakes (16630) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2017
Dark brown, bubbly light brown head. Rich inky, syrupy bourbon and rich molassesy stout nose. Sweet, rich, a bit of that fruity roasty sting, softened by really decadent dark sugars.Very good, excellent balance.

argeru (68) - Hillsboro, Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2017
375ml. Pitch Black, toasted on the edges, thin layer of water and carb on top. Smells like sitting in front of the fire drinking a glass of carmelized brandy. Slick on the tongue, cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, licorice, roasted malt. Bourbon barrel? Not so much...red wine barrel more like it. Either way, still very tasty (:

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate and vanilla aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My high expectations where met.
