COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Damon (1993-2004) The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually: memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance. Damon was our brother devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this Imperial Stout in bourbon barrels from our favorite distillery. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey of his loyalty and his love. 27 Plato

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Aug 2013 bottle thanks to the local group for sharing. Black pour with a thin, tan head that fades to a thin ring. Aromas are tobacco, coffee, vanilla, and bourbon. Taste is more complex than the aroma. Sweet chocolate syrup, vanilla, coffee, caramel, anise, dark fruit tobacco, and strong bourbon. The bourbon is pretty powerful in this but no heat at all. Medium body. Smooth and a little creamy.

Pailhead (6529) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of milk chocolate, vanilla, light molasses, caramel, bourbon, a hint of apple, and anise. It pours a dark brown with no transparency with a small tan head that quickly fades to a very fine ring. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy milk chocolate, molasses, caramel, and faint fruit. The finish has light espresso, bourbon, anise, and a touch of oak. Its medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel.

(500ml bottle) jet black, creamy dark tan head, excellent glass coating. Nose of bourbon, french oak, light ash, alcoholic, maple. Taste is ashy, alcohol, burnt sugars, light bourbon, a bit unbalanced and estery, tons of wood in the finish.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 Bottles kindly shared by Tom 10101 & JHuxley during our epic CMLSG cellar tasting - all 3 versions put next to each other. All of them have an incredibly nice balance between sweetness and roastiness which is unparallelled vs. other American BA RISs, which make them all great beers. - Damon: 3.9/5: subtle vanilla and cocoa in the aromas - Damon PBA;: 4.2/5: my favourite: more depth and complexity. Nose reveils cigars, leather, red fruits. Taste is roasty with a nice vinious touch of raisins. - Damon DBA 4/5: despite the fact that it is the most balanced in the nose, I think the taste is a tad bland. ------ Re-t all of them at The Ultimate Imperial Stout Tasting April 2015. Keeping scores for the PBA & BBA The DBA has aged wonderfully and is th best Acan Stout to date for me: balanced, subtle and extremely tasteful. Upped the DBA to 4.7.

Bottle as shown thanks to Matt. Pours a very dark brown with medium tan head that lasts awhile. The aroma is strong roast, faint metallic, and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with strong roast, dark chocolate, sweet malt, and light bitterness. Easy to drink, very good.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2017 08/02/2014 750ml bottle shared by Theydon_Bois @Ma che siete venuti a f (thanks Colin!). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, bella schiuma color cappuccino, molto persistente. Naso pulito ed elegante, di enorme raffinatezza, sentori di malti tostati, cioccolato fondente, leggera vaniglia, alcol nascosto, eccellente! In bocca vellutata e setosa al palato, morbida ed equilibrata ma al tempo stesso intensa, lunga, complessa e appagante. Note di cioccolata fondente, melassa, note legnose, finale amarognolo appena caffettoso, alcol non pervenuto. Imperial Stout sopraffina, di classe straordinaria, grazie a Colin per questa bevuta memorabile!

Bouteille 500 mL. Noire opaque, mousse lgre bruntre. Nez de torrfaction et de bourbon. Bouche au corps dense, paisse quasi-sirupeuse: toasts, fume et barrique de bourbon (bourbon, vanille et chne). Pas aussi intense quimagin, ce qui est une qualit.
