Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Notes from the first release - cork and cage. Aroma is very light with some smoky malts. Pours dark mahogany with a tan head. The flavors bring malty chocolate notes; roasted and bitter notes round it out as well.

It pours black with a dark brown head. It has aromas of bourbon, roast, chocolate, dark fruits, raisins, and hints of vanilla. There are chocolate flavors, bourbon, dark fruits, raisins, hints of vanilla, and a slight burnt taste. It has a heavy feel to it that is bitter and has plenty of alcohol warming.

katrinaez (1822) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Scent is heavy ripe black cherry and sweet tobacco cigars. Black with almost no head. Taste has nice boozy quality, but easy to drink. Not overly harsh. Mouth is good and full but again simple enough to not make you feel full. Bottle

JFGrind (2038) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Well built full bodied malty Imperial Stout that is maximized flavors with barrel aging. Coffee, roast, vanilla and bourbon goodness. Not too boozy, just right for my palate.

demannu (462) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Thick black pour with a cola colored head with a lasting small film. Big sweet bourbon, roasted coffee, and chocolate aroma. Smells delicious. Taste is dominated by bourbon with some vanilla and chocolate notes. Maybe a bit too boozy overall. Lighter mouthful than i expected. Smooth flat texture.

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2015
12oz bottle into tulip glass, opaque black color with dark tan head. Aroma notes of heavy roasted malt sweetness, chocolate, licorice, bourbon, vanilla, light coffee and some oak. Taste seems more bourbon barrel forward; mocha, malt chocolate, vanilla bean, dark dried fruits, caramel, wood char and booze. Heavy body, low carbonation, creamy, rich with lingering sweet, roasty chocolate finish. Quite enjoyed this, very chocolatey leaning barreled RIS.

furthur (1150) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle, black body some graham cracker colored head, nice lace. Aroma is huge vanilla, brown sugar and cookies, roasted barley, dried plums, molasses, whiskey, marschino cherries. Taste is vanilla and cherries, chocolate and bourbon, some oak, salt, black pepper, anise, citrus rind. This is sweet that quickly transitions to dry and whiskey. Pale is rich but not syrupy, carbonation subdued and soft. Finish is hoppy dry, but I kinda think a year in the cellar would really improve this by taking the edge off, it’s just a touch unbalanced, and the bourbon is a tad hot, but that cherry bourbon vanilla is so worth it! This is good!
