UPDATED: MAR 2, 2018 On Tap at On Tap. Dark brown to black color. Tank head, light ring. Wood, oak, alcohol aroma. Chocolate nose. Dark malts, alcohol flavor. Warming. Bourbon and chocolate. Some starts to souring notes jhamp9 (2038) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2018
Pitch black pour with a few dark khaki bubbles, but no real head to speak of. Oily coating of the glass. Aroma was noticeable as soon as the bottle was opened. Strong chocolate fudge, bourbon, vanilla, and caramel aroma. Taste is bourbon forward with some chocolate syrup, vanilla, berry, and caramel to compliment it, but just a little thin. On the sweeter side. Medium full body. Very good. bpreo (3049) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2017
I paid $14.99 (plus $0.10 deposit) for this beer, so it better be the best goddamn beer I ever drank. Yeah, it's absolutely perfect. mbgrayson (825) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - AUG 28, 2017
Pours jet black with almost no head. Aroma of malts, anise, and bourbon. Taste is complex and a bit sweet. This is a very solid BA RIS. Thumb up. HuskerTan (2528) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - JUL 18, 2017

A- Black color, black liquid, minimal head.
T- Chocolate, oak, booze, sharpie, subtle soy.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, boozy finish.
O- Lots of booziness even after 2+ years of age. Good but a tad harsh.

Man, this is a dangerous Imperial Stout. My bottle had nearly 2 years of age on it, but this beer was extremely smooth. Between the high ABV and the aging, this beer produced almost no head and had a thick, coal black pour. Rich bittersweet chocolate flavor with notes of strong coffee and a little soy. The barrel-aging has contributed some mellow caramel-vanilla booze sweetness. Full-boded to the max. This beer will stick to any surface of your mouth and probably sticks to your bones thereafter. bulldogops (2885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
Rating #2434 - 2016.04.11 - Draught @alibiroom - Copper&Theory TT - Pours a jet black.Aroma is vanilla, cocoa, espresso. Palate is a sweet mix of alcohol warmth, chocolate sauce, coffee, and earth. Fantastic. Hammy78 (980) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2017
Pours a opaque black, no head. If there is any lace its tiny legs clinging to the glass walls. Nose is sweet, vanilla booziness. Tastes sweet an soft, a little fire, roast, vanilla barrel character. Some fudge. Good stuff, better than the last one I had from them. UXO (1896) - CANADA - JAN 25, 2017
Appearance: inky black with a short, short-lived loose beige head, no lacing. (4/5) Aroma: roasty malt, chocolate, bourbon, oak, liquorice. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-full body tending slightly watery, moderate-low carbonation, lingering bitter and warming finish. (3/5)
My second bourbon barrel-aged stout of the evening, and perhaps I did them in the wrong order, but this one suffers slightly by comparison. Decent enough on the front end, with roasty malts, chocolate, and bourbon, but finishes just a little thin in the body, with an emphatic, slightly unbalanced liquorice note. And seriously - why does the word “premium” on the label seem to, without fail, lead to abuse? Here’s an example of a beer that could probably carry off a “premium” designation. “Most premium”? Hmm… maybe. I don’t think it’s that, but some might. “Most most premium”? Nah. (14/20) AdamChandler (5252) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 29, 2016
looks like a dark beer ooh imperial stout. looks very thin but totally black. smells like a coconut and vanilla shake. it has a lot of BCS qualities. almond joy, coconut sunday with vanilla. fresh fudge, I guessed the ABV! Creamy and sweet. would be nice if it was carbonated.
