Bottles from Capone’s, Smith’s, Blue Dog. Pours jet black, oily, thick, with minimal tan head. Nose is oaky bourbon, molasses, vanilla. Tastes thick and rich on the palate, with heavy oaky bourbon flavor, roasty dark malt, molasses, and prune. Finishes a bit hot, thivk, complex, and rich. This one is great.

Very similar to goose island bourbon stout. Really Carmelly with a bourbon kick. Pours dark black.

Thanks to Beer Savant for sharing 2011 vintage bottle during his 50th birthday bash. This beer pours a brownish-black color with a medium thin foamy beige head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky vanilla, bourbon and dark chocolate. The finish is boozy with vanilla and roast malt aftertaste. Good beer all around. reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Pours dark brown with a creamy medium tan head. Aroma has light boozy notes, dark fruit, toasted coconut. Flavor has notes of coffee, toasted coconut, mild dark chocolate, nice bourbon. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a nice coffee/bourbon finish...buffalo trace is evident.

(22oz bottle) Pours an opaque black body with a small brown head. Aroma of vanilla, wood, caramel, toffee, bourbon, and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, bourbon, and brown sugar. JulienHuxley (5809) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown/black pour with brown head. Aroma is really "sweet", lots of honey, creme brulée, sweet bourbon vanilla. Taste is much the same, really sweet, dessert-like, honey, vanilla and caramelized sugar. Palate is rich, almost cloying, with smooth carbonation. Decent. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
Pours black with very low beige head. Aroma is of caramel, roasted malt, fruits, wood. Taste is of sweetness, caramel, fruits. Sweet but not cloying. Palate: Medium-full body. Overall: Very good. Dpaquet (420) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle from Pier-luc and Julien, thanks! Pours a pitch black with a small black head that doesnt last really long. No lacing. Aroma is full of vanilla, some cocoa, coconut. Taste is still loaded with vanilla, cocoa, honey, oak. Full body and low carbonation. A desert beer. Probably the stout that has the most vanilla flavor that i had yet (didnt have bcbvs). tom10101 (6087) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle (22 oz). Shared by Pier-Luc, Julien & Benoît, thanks! Black with a small beige head. Aroma is rich and somewhat boozy with vanilla, wood, sweetness notes, chocolate, coconut and molasses. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet (but not cloying for the 4 oz pour that I had) with vanilla, wood, coconut, molasses and alcohol... there’s not any roasted presence here. Heavy body. Thick mouthfeel. Rich, complex and decadent Imperial Stout. Good!
