Here it is. This is a 12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. It pours a velvety dark brown/black color. The head is tan/brown, fluffy, and leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma is equal parts coffee and dark chocolate, with hints of booze and vanilla. This isn’t a coffee-forward as FBS, but it’s no slouch in that arena either. The taste is coffee upfront followed by chocolate and roasted malts. I’m getting very little in the way of vanilla, caramel, oak, or other BBA flavors. Incredibly smooth, silky, full mouthfeel. I don’t like this quite as much as FIS, but it is fantastic.
Bottle 355ml 11,9 % abv. Pours thick black with dark brown head. Aroma chocolate, bourbon, vanilla. Taste chocolate, bourbon, oak, alcohol warm. Coffee aftertaste. Just perfect! balloonbuffoon (601) - - NOV 16, 2017
Draft served in a snifter glass in less than ideal setting, but it's KBS! Note I've thoroughly enjoyed this from bottles in the past whenever I could come across some. This rating is below those experiences. The smell of bourbon is a primary characteristic of this dark oily beer. Taste is semi-sweet, mild-moderately roasted, and accented by oak flavors. Thick, rich, and a pleasure to drink as always. dmctaster (97) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2017
Black with a dark brown head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is strong bourbon and hints of chocolate malts. Taste is bourbon, and vanilla. Does not have the watered down or heavy taste, but does have a alcohol burn. Lives up to the name with the bourbon, very slight chocolate, and hints of vanilla.

Here's to Johnny Harvard;
Fill him up a full glass,
Fill him up a glass to his name and fame,
And at the same time
Don't forget his true love;
Fill her up a bumper to the brim.

Pours dark and oily with a rich, thick head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and bourbon, in that order. Flavor is an explosion of chocolate and bourbon, mellowing to a rich coffee aftertaste. The beer has well-earned its reputation as among the best imperial stouts around. klakier (10) - Deurne (Antwerpen), BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2017

Aromatic chocolate praline and coffee, vanilla, praline really strong. alcohol in the back very nice, so classically imperial stout.
I hope I can taste it again! StoutBeerReviews (241) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2017
boozy musty wood flavor. Some licorice and black coffee too. It's super strong and certainly a sipper. Probably the most intense flavor I've had in a beer but not something I would buy again for that exact reason. My palate isn't up to par lmao. i dont know what to rate it because of this so im just going with a 4 Trolleo (1737) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 9, 2017
Lots of coffee, hints of raw coffee, bitter cocoa, vanilla, wood, bit earthy and spicy. Oily black color with minimal sized brown head. Bitter cocoa, earth, vanilla, raw coffee, some alcohol in aftertaste. Full bodied, creamy, oily, soft carbonation. Really enjoyed it. //bottle thanks to iznogud
