Crowler fill at decicco's a few months back, pours a medium to dark black with small tan mocha head, bourbon wafting through the air, nose is highly pleasing with a solid mix of dark cocoa, bourbon, roasted nuts, and just plain awesomeness, mouthfeel is smooth n silky, doesn't taste like 10 at all, bourbon is nicely done here, not overly assertive or weak, does pack a punch at the conclusion to keep you on your toes, really nice stuff that is reminiscent of BCBS

Adamsville (425) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2017
Apparence : Noire, col brun moyen, rétention faible laissant un léger anneau, carbonatation faible.
Nez : Malt grillé, notes de café, légère vanille, présence d’un fut.
Goût : Malt grillé, arômes du fut intégrés, léger alcool, légère amertume en finale accompagnée d’une très légère acidité que j’associe à la torréfaction du malt. Pas trop sucrée, assez similaire du début à la fin de la gorgée. Chocolat qui devient plus proéminent en se réchauffant.
Sensation : Corps moyen-dense, chaleureuse, bonne longueur.
Bref : On a droit à une bière où la base maltée se démarque à mon avis davantage que les apports des ajouts et du fut; ce qui n’est pas une mauvaise chose en soi. Beaucoup de notes rôties, rarement dans la torréfaction ou encore dans le sucre. Étonnamment, mon partenaire de dégustation, la faisant à l’aveugle, a tout de suite noté le chocolat; alors que pour ma part, connaissant son inclusion, je ne l’ai que réellement noté lorsque la bière se réchauffait. Assez unidimensionnelle, il s’agit tout de même d’une belle création qui ne tombe dans aucun excès ni dans l’artificiel.

Draught at the Jeffrey, 1/1/17.
Dark, inky, mahogany-ebony of indeterminable clarity. Tan head atop is small and slowly recedes to ring.
Very light bourbon character in the nose gives way to caramel, soft, luxurious vanilla and tons of elegant, easygoing, fruity, roasty espresso. The chocolate character never comes off too bitter/astringent or overly fudgey and the beer is nicely under control with the alcohol, being at a reasonable 9.2% abv. I’ll never understand why brewers feel the need to make Imperial Stouts higher than this. That’s plenty high...
Milk chocolate, light cocoa, more highly enjoyable espresso roast with hints of plum, prune, raisin and fruity, rich coffee. Low but tight carbonation and a sticky, chewy texture that is appropriately attenuated and on the dry side while still being balanced. Really, really nice stuff. Low on the bourbon, not boozy and not syrupy or too sweet.

SG111 (2162) - New York, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Tap at Barcade, 24th Street. Pours pitch black, tan head. Aroma is lots of bourbon, molasses, peat, whiskey, seems like scotch, roasted malt, chocolate, roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, some molasses, not as much as the nose. Very good. Not the best barrel aged Stout I’ve had, but it holds up with some of the best.

Draft at the brewery. 2016 version, missed out on the bottles. Pours a dark brown with some lighter, streaky lacework. Heavy bourbon, booze, and vanilla. Bit of roasted malt. Light chocolate. Boozy and fairly bitter, not much sweetness to be found. Smooth feel, softer carbonation. Full bodied. Boozy feel. Really good, but at the same time, I’m glad to only have a small sample.
