Thisis12ptfont (1143) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Aromas of immense coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, raisins, charred malts, barrel wood, toffee, hints of vanilla and green pepper skin. Pours pitch black with no foam and hidden alcohol legs. Taste brings heavy coffee, charcoal, charred malts, campfire ash, oak, barrel wood, bourbon and chocolate upfront. Mid palate offers more oak, toffee, raisins, barrel wood, leather, slick caramel, vanilla, black licorice, slick coffee oils and tons of bourbon. Finishes with bitter coffee, coffee oils, chocolate syrup, roasted black malts, vanilla and massive bourbon. Overall, this is a delectable treat with a massive amount of bourbon and coffee complexity. Coffee lovers rejoice.

650ml bottle @ Jonnys 2016 Eclipse tasting. Pours a mostly opaque black brown colour with a thin tan head. Nose is huge green peppers. Flavour is much better, imparting a decent coffee character, while finishing semi-bitter. Not as enjoyable as the others.

zizzybalubba (1844) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2016
22 oz. bottle from Liquor Mart, Boulder, CO (2015 bottle, run no. 2). Dark brown to nearly black pour with a frothy light brown head. Incredible aroma of roasted coffee, rich malt, bourbon, oak, and light vanilla. Great taste of dark chocolate, espresso, licorice, damp oak, vanilla, coconut, and light booze. Medium alcohol warming with a slightly bitter, but not unpleasant, charred malt finish. A great imperial stout.
