3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle, 1/29/10
Aroma: Some roasted malts, bourbon, oats, coffee, and bittersweet chocolate
Appearance: It’s a pitch black, tar-like beer with a thin, dark brown head
Flavor: Flavor is mostly dark chocolate and bourbon, dark malts, some bitterness as it ends
Palate: A medium-full bodied beer with a smooth creamy feel, low on carbonation, and some ABV burn
Overall this beer is pretty solid, though the bourbon character is definitely very strong, it is not completely overpowering. This beer hold up well to the bourbon aging treatment.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 Whiskey aroma comes up immediately while pouring this dark concoction with a light kahki head. Coffee, tobacco and dark semisweet chocolate also contribute. Full bodied and oily with a slight dry cocoa powder finish. Chocolately flavor with a good dose of whiskey. Roasted oatmeal, malts somewhat overpowered by the whiskey. Overall I’d prefer the regular version over this one

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Boozy and molassis drip coming from the nose..with maybe a touch of vanilla, stale cardbnoard, and oatmeal...oh, and some underlying chocolate notes to boot. Pours dark brown with an orange-brown head. THick, sweet and chocolaty flavors..the bourbon influence is evident yet subdued. Clean, super malty with essences of bourbon...However, I think i like the regular version much better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle poured black with a tan sand colored head that has enough carbonation to leave a small ring that lasts. Notes of alcohol, whiskey, and heavily roasted malt accentuate the nose. This is a full bodied stout with bread and yeast flavors enhanced by malt, chocolate, coffee and a lingering hint of hop on finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Black with a low brown head. Strong scotch-notes in the aroma - basement-like and woody. The flavour is very sweet for an Imperial Stout. There are notes of caffe latte, cocoa, scotch, vanilla and rest sugar. The finish is mildly bitter. I liked the original version much better.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a black color with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and plenty of oak and alcohol. Flavor is the same without being overly oaked. Amazing blend of flavors of roasted malts and oak. Truly delicious

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Recently purchased bottle with green cap. Pour is black with a very slow forming small brown head. Aroma is rich and silky malt with lots of dark aromas of: peat, smoke, leather, tobacco, whiskey, and vanilla. Aroma is very rich. Flavor is very true to nose with rich chocolate malts, old cigar room with leather couches, and vanilla. Really easy to drink and a nice chewy body to it. This is great!
