Served on tap in a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer is served a pitch black color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is massive of a s vanilla smell with a big presence of a dark roasted malt smell as a well as a bit lot roasted bourbon booziness and some notes of cocoa.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter roasted malt and chocolate taste with plenty of bourbon booziness and a good deal of vanilla and darker fruits. The bourbon booziness grow slightly stronger as the taste advances with some other more roasted malt flavor increasing in intensity as well. The sweetness remains rather high with a good showing of chocolate, sweet vanilla, and caramel throughout, but is all the while balanced by the rather robust boozy and dark flavors of the brew, leaving one with a quite thick and satisfyingly robust dark imperial flavor to linger on the tongue, slightly boozy,
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super thick with a lower carbonation. These characteristics are fantastic for the big rich and slightly boozy flavors of the brew creating a nice feel to accentuate the big and powerful flavors.
Overall – This is a quite enjoyable and rather robust imperial stout with tons of flavor and a really nice mouth coating feel.

Bottle 22fl.oz. @ cgarvieuk [ Lets do a chrisO Tasting ], Edinburgh, Scotland.
[ As DuClaw Divine Retribution No. 2 ].
[ Bottle # 35/1200 ].Clear medium brown color with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly lasting to diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, bourbon, sugary, sweet chocolate, dark fruit. Flavour is heavy sweet and light bitter with a long duration, vanilla, chocolate. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. 
Bottle... Mostly clear, dark brown pour with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is a mingling of pouch tobacco, vanilla, alcohol and a pinch of toasted coconut. Full-bodied and velvety with restrained carbonation. The flavor is a fusion of sweet molasses, bourbon and vanilla. Finishes sweet and boozy. Very enjoyable, but with a retail price of $27.99, it’s too spendy for me to ever drink again. McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Darkest brown with rub of ruby in the light and stencil of tan head head. Buzzing sheen MDF woodiness but with a decent estuary smoky nose. Buckets of choc, in a spread throughout from the initial taste of light cocoa to dark chewy nibs. Finish is masked dark liquorice, hating alcohol burn. Cuffed sweetness by this, but the finish is earnest vanilla and rich dryness.

Bottle, mule’d by CAGarvie for the "Let’s Do A Chris O" Chris-O-age, vile style I had to decrypt this one - but worth it
Bottle courtesy of Craig at Craigs doing a Chris O tasting, Edinburgh (ta for the beer Craig) Saturday 15th March Pours black with a red glint. A little chilli heat coming from somewhere, everyone kept going on about sexual chocolate, can’t recall whether they were discussing this or another but this was marvellous. Lots of chocolate some vanilla, good but I think that chilli is a bit of harshness from the alcohol. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov16 3.8 allmyvinyl (11019) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2014
