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. 27º Plato

Bottled. A black beer with a rim of brown head - sirupy thick. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, alcohol, soy sauce, and wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, and vanilla, leading to a bitter finish.

mcberko (17809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2012 500mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany!), pours like engine oil, a pitch black with zero head, just a few bubbles. Decadent aroma of chocolate fudge and bourbon barrels upfront with some vanilla and subtle espresso beans further back. Flavour is rich and decadent, with more of the chocolate fudge, more dominant bourbon barrels than the nose suggests, and a prominent alcohol burn. Balanced beautifully between these three main qualities, leaving a chocolately alcohol burn on the finish. Almost zero carbonation - usually I wouldn’t complain about this, but in this case (as Matts_Property says), I think slightly higher carbonation would benefit the mouthfeel. Silky smooth and thick body. Decadent and quite easy to drink for the style despite being a bourbon booze bomb. Delicious stuff.
