Bottled. Pours pitch black with a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa. dark chocolate, bourbon, soy, vanilla and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with bitter notes and alcohol.

Bottle @ ZEBF 2015. Aroma of coffee, booze and roast. Taste has coffee, whiskey, sweet boozy fruit and some roasted cacao. Nice, but expected even more. Garlic_of_Doom (655) - SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2015
Almost black, a bit redbrownish with a small beige head that covers the surface.
Aroma is mostly sweet, brown sugar and bourbon dominate.
Taste is sweet at first, then roasted with dark chocolate/hot cocoa, peppery, bourbon notes that doesn’t over power everything else, some alcohol heat. Surprisingly bitter.
Full body, low but very present carbonation, smooth and round mouth feel.
Long bitter roasted after taste with alcohol heat. AWISLguy (3327) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2015
2014 version, thx H! Shared by all on the Wedding Weekend during the wedding night tasting. Very dark brown pour. Big whiskey and caramel nose. Some roast added in the taste, but the whiskey is much more assertive and flavorful than the Four Roses version, which truly is the key. 15.8 GlasgowTAD (1898) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2015

Bottle shared with the Dangerous Bottleshares crew. Pours black with a bubbly beige head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, big bourbon notes, dark dried fruits, weak brownies and just straight forward BA imperial stout. The taste has bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and is overall pretty barrel heavy. Though the balance is pretty standard. Brighter cocoa and a solid malt-profile. hackobock (4095) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2015
