Cheers to northern brews for the bottle. Thick black pour with a thin cocoa head. Toasted grain, vanilla, bourbon and chocolate aroma. Very complex and flavor meld well. Smooth chocolate and roasted grain with hints of bourbon and vanilla. Damn good brew. hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2016
August 29, 2015. Bottle at home, received in a trade with AtlCarl, thanks! chucklemation (1685) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Black with a small brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, notes of sweet and salty licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, toasted coconuts, light bourbon character and hints of vanilla. Taste is medium sweet, smooth roasted bitterness. Finish is roasted bitterness with dark chocolate, roasted coffee, some sweet caramel, licorice, vanilla and a light warming bourbon touch. Full bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation.
Very nice, subtle barrel notes but the taste is well balanced.
Pours a jet black with a thin tan head. Aroma is vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, caramel, and roast. Flavor is roast, bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate. A little bit bitter, not too big of a body for an imperial stout. A high quality imperial stout, but not a stand out for me. BuckeyeBoy (7684) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 29, 2016

12oz bottle with silver wax. A brief celebration that reasonable heads prevailed at tonight’s town meeting. Pours nearly black with a beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, bourbon, oak. This is smooth with great depth of flavor. Dark chocolate, strong dark coffee, vanilla oak, bourbon. There’s a hint of overextracted coffee bitterness in the finish.

Little boozy , a lot of chocolate, Cherry oakiness, a lot of oAk at the nose, some bourbon notes. First Sip was brutal. Bourbon and chocolate meets forma very intriguing favor. With the warm there is a little sweet vanilla returns, but best part of this beer is alcool. Chocolate, dark chocolate, very very good one. oily feel, full body, smooth, extremely smooth. biirusaikou (2705) - - APR 14, 2016
Bottle shared. One of those big big whales, very rich mouthfeel, dark chocolate, dried fruit, vanilla, espresso, bourbon spice, fairly dry finish. Amazing stuff, decadent as some would say! thepatrickman (1358) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
Bottle at home. This is one legit BA stout. It’s full of chocolate and cocoa flavor, like you’d expect, as well as some smooth, warming bourbon aromas, but it is extremely smooth and full-bodied, which really accentuates the other flavors. Rich, roasted, velvet smooth, and absolutely phenomenal -- one of the best beers out there. jonno (2762) - JAPAN - APR 3, 2016
Whisky, Oily, Coffee mocha, burnt flavours, vanilla and custard, cocoa nibs, flinty, dryish alcohol finish. Pretty smooth for such a big sipper. Ferris (15413) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle - Dark cocoa and some roast. Deep jet black with a rich brown head. Sweet dark cocoa notes and nice light boozy heat. It’s pretty nice.
