77ships (9267) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2016
Bomber sampled @ HopisHop B.U.M.B. 2016. Oily black with no head. Nose is insanely big on bourbon, overly heavy on booze, very hot, thick molasses, syrup, chocolate syrup, thick sugar. Taste is hot, very heavy molasses & bourbon, sugar, pure syrup, chocolate syrup, sugar, dark fruit syrup,... boozy. Body is thick molasses & bourbon. Good beer, very nice even but a bit too hot & heavy on bourbon, bit more balance would have made it even better. Improved as it got warmer.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2017 Head to head with regular version: pours black, with stable tan half finger brown head, which slowly transforms itself to a ring around the glass. Aroma: rich, intense dark malts aroma with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, cocoa powder, molasses, vanilla, hint of bourbon. Flavor: intense coffee notes, supported with dark chocolate, molasses, licorice, cantuccini, cacao nibs, vanilla, gentle bourbon note, port wine, and dark fruits in the background. Alcohol note is very well hidden, malt backbone, bourbon and hop bitterness are very well balanced. Finish is dry, slightly thick. Body is full, texture is super smooth, carbonation is low. Very good imperial stout, but still preffer regular version.

AirForceHops (6954) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Purchased this 22 ounce bottle on one 1 October 2014. (Because I marked it myself) Stored proper. Pitch black with very thin tan head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is slightly charred grain, mild bourbon, dark chocolate.

Flavor doesnt show any signs oxidation, bourbon is very mellow but does show itself in the finish. Probably maybe a tad past its prime but still really smooth for the overall flavor. Bourbon is nice. Body is fuller with a fullness that I expect in the style.

Taste is medium sweet, light roasted bitterness. Finish is bitter with dark chocolate, notes of coffee, sweet caramel, figs, notes of prunes, vanilla, creamy almond paste and warming bourbon notes. Medium to full bodied, soft to average carbonation.
Very nice!
