(bottle - 22 oz) Had two bottles of this over the course of the night. Deep rich black pour with a dark tan head. Huge bourbon in the nose with a ton of vanilla. Almost has a creamy coffee smell to it. Very sweet and warm. Flavor is immense. Vanilla, bourbon, roasted coffee, burnt malts and cream all rolled up into one thick and delicious beer. The vanilla rolls around with the bourbon and the stout and sits perfectly on the palate. A little hot but it was only 2 weeks old. Can’t wait to try it with some age on it. Incredible. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Big thanks to Dosbeerigos for sharing this. A perfect imperial stout. Aroma is slightly boozy with a good amount of vanilla bean and cream. Appearance is pitch black with a small brown head, good lacing. Taste is slightly sweet and boozy. Ton of vanilla with hints of milk lactose. Incredible. funkyaudio (11) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2012
caramel, vanilla, black, brown foam, cloudy, medium sweetness, full body, thick feel, average carbonation, long finish, Still one of my favorite beers kbc (30) - Vitoria - Gasteiz, SPAIN - JUL 12, 2012
Me dejó sin palabras. Compleja, licorosa. Café,. Vainilla. La textura es infinita. De las cervezas más largas que he probado. Hay que tomarla con calma y disfrutar de como varían los matices mientras se va oxigenando. En mi Top Ten particular. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, dense, deep black with a moderate dark brown head that lasted through the first two sips and left scant lace. The aroma is simply exquisite with ample vanilla, bourbon, caramel, oak, and chocolate. Just amazing. The flavor is similar to the aroma and is filled with delicious vanilla, bourbon, caramel, oak, chocolate and coffee. There is some definite booziness at the finish and noticeable alcohol warmth, but I think that enhances this beer given its richness and depth. Reminds me in some ways of a fine liqueur. Full bodied with a dense, silky mouthfeel. This is delicious. Virtual perfection.

Heavy viscous cofee with vanilla... You can use a spoon!! I love this brewery. Perfect!! Cbuk1013 (247) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2013
Great beer. Black pour with little head. Smells of chocolate, caramels, honey, vanilla bean, bourbon whiskey, malt. The vanilla smell was less than I expected, but it was there in the taste. Wow! Very alcohol heavy, in a good way. Creamy mouthfeel. A great experience! Eviva (29) - GREECE - FEB 26, 2014
Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, slight alcohol, and roasted malt. Smells absolutely fantastic. Taste starts off with a ton of vanilla flavor and chocolate. The bourbon flavors of the base beer aren’t as strong, but they do blend it well with the vanilla. Mouthfeel is sticky and thick. Sharp alcohol bite after each sip. The vanilla didn’t come off as overpowering, it just made the base beer even better. Just perfect!!! zchall23 (12) - , Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2015
bourbon vanilla chocolate marshmallow; need I say more? Smells just as it tastes. Much more balanced than vanilla rye, and one of the best beers I have ever had. Christpuncher (3112) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2016
bottle pour at kases. no aroma of vanilla at alll, very whiskey smelling. flavor is well balanced, no vanilla. very light palette. really smooth, just a tick off because of the loss of vanilla.
