11th October 2008. GABF. Smooth bourbon in this smooth malty stout. Decent without being too exciting. Leighton (21085) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. This was a mean beer, man. Oil black pour with a monstrous, dark tan head. Plenty of roasted malts, cocoa and some coffee in the aroma. Hints of booze. Deep flavor, good chocolate and burnt malt character, mostly sweet with some bitter notes creeping in towards the end. Big body, a little chewy, warming, modestly carbonated. Finished relatively sweet with lingering chocolate. Fantastic. DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2009
(11/2/08) Draught sample at Hamilton’s in San Diego. Black-colored with a big light brown head. Aroma of bourbon, pralines and some dark fruity notes. Sweet flavor with roastiness, dark chocolate, some burnt notes and some fruity hints. Medium to full-bodied with quite a bit of carbonation. A very good Stout. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2011
(Darught) Pours an opaque black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, and wood. Flavor of chocolate, bourbon, wood, roasted malt, coffee, caramel, and a hint of cherry. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
Tap at Hamilton’s. Very dark black beer with a thick creamy tan/brown head. Aroma is really great. Loads of rich dark chocolate and malted milk character. Sweet vanilla and a light bourbony character. Some light caramel and a bit of spicy woody tannins. Very full-bodied and chewy. Sweet milk chocolate, malted milk, and a soft herbal bitterness. Very restrained with excellent integration between the sweet vanilla/caramel bourbony flavour and the deep dark chocolate. Very rich, silken, and unctuous mouthfeel. One of the better barrel-aged impys I’ve had in a long time.
