Dark brown, light biscuity toasty malts, ok... a bit thin but some ok flavours. hayduke (5757) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 19, 2017
Shared with Strykzone of Facebook Chat Pours very dark brown being near black with a tan head. Nose is chocolate malts and light bourbon. Full bodyl Flavor is chocolate, dark ripe fruit, some nuts, and wood. Bourbon is hard to find but finally appears. What really appears is the alcohol which is not at all hidden, and burns with every sip.That detracts from what is otherwise a very great beer. BroadestTom (457) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2017

Black color. This Imperial Stout has some liquorice flavor, it's a bit nutty, sweet, with pronounced alcohol.
Not very harmonious but good.
Very weird this seasonal release comes every July but well worth the wait. One of my favorite imperial stouts. Some notes of soy and smoke makes for a unique additional to a rather mild and less boozy stout that some would prefer.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2018 Pour oily black with minimal head. Aroma is chocolate, roast and vanilla. Taste is sweet chocolate with bitter coffee working in. Finish is all about the whiskey. A great, complex stout. donandres (700) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - NOV 8, 2017

The aroma is light, a little bourbon some vanilla. Pours a dark brown with dark tan head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is a medium bitter. The body is medium/full, the texture creamy, the carbonation soft and the finish bitter and long. Very Good! Smooth body, great taste and bitterness is well balanced.
