22 oz bottle with black wax via trade from notes. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruits, molasses, a hint of smoke, bourbon, some vanilla and wood, bourbon barrel works pretty well with this some warming alcohol. b3shine (9412) - Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Bomber to snifter (2013 vintage, bottle run no. 2 - black wax; thanks Ferris). Looks good; a very dark (almost dull black) cola with foamy beige head. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, oak, mild roast, and a bit of unaversive oxidation. Tastes like it smells, but less rich, with a mildly bitter medium full-bodied mouthfeel that’s slightly warming on the finish. Enjoyable, and drinks easier than 10%. stevoj (6036) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 19, 2016
Catch up rating from Saturday’s RIS bottle share. Thanks Rich! What a way to cap the night. A standout from start to finish. Warm, welcoming boozy aroma, taste brings in elements of wood and whiskey, and lots of sub-currents of chocolate and molasses. All around excellent.

Boise Imperial Stout Tasting. Near black pour with a thin beige cap. Rich aroma of bourbon barrel and roast, light vanilla and dark chocolate. Sweet taste is loaded with bourbon barrel, vanilla, chocolate, and roast. Potent. Smooth and silky, very delicious.

Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, close to full bodied. Erzengel (10018) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2016
Sehr intensives Bier. Schon fast dickflüssig mit tief dunklem Körper. Aromenreich mit intensiv-voluminantem wood with a smooth Bourbon aroma on top. The wood is present all the time, the Bourbon is soft and fits ideal into the dark and rich chocolate malty beer. Creamy smooth in the aftertaste, the aromas are at par, not much bitterness, brown sugar, chocolate and great woody Bourbon! Fantastic! Beerhunter111 (23978) - Beerland, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2016
Fast schwarz, geringe beige Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Kaffee, bittere Schokolade, Karamell, Lakritze, Alkohol. Geschmack nach Kaffee, Schokolade, dunkle Früchte, Holz, alkoholisch. SinH4 (7034) - Garching b. MÃ¼nchen, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2016
Shared with Koelschtrinker and Beerhunter111. Black color with tan ring. Aroma is black chocolate, vanilla, booze on the second smell. Taste is more black chocolate, some spices, vanilla, toffee, not as boozy as the Elijah Craig 20yo one. Awesome! Koelschtrinker (22718) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 8, 2016
