PattyBat (84) - - DEC 5, 2013
Bomber poured into snifter. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, and a little oak. Strong espresso taste with a sweeter chocolate balance finished off with a smooth oak taste. All the beauty of BORIS with an added oaky finish. Awesome brew.

KraftowyJakup (236) - POLAND - APR 29, 2017
Mega słodki aromat bourbonu, beczkowe orzechy mieszają się z kawą i czekoladą, wanilia wygładza profil piwa. W smaku podobnie, dość szlachetnie, alkohol wyczuwalny, ale w granicach przyzwoitości.

Obrzydliwie przesłodzone, jak rozpuszczone w alkoholu cukierki z likierem czekoladowym, mdłe piwo na antypodach tego, co w risach sobie cenię. Głupkowaty trunek dla poganiaczy bydłs

22 oz bottle poured at Bob’s, generously sent over by Prufrockstar. Huge thanks for this one, my friend! Jet black pour with a spiraling, espresso brown head. Oats, dark chcolate, and a softer bourbon note on the aroma. Flavor is pretty similar, only the bourbon is a little more center stage. Fun barrel treat here. A dry oak to it. A bit dusty. Great oat constant. Late chocolate linger that outlasts the bourbon. Very pleasant imperial here. Awesome stuff.

ALIBALI (1603) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2017
Oh YES!!! So soll mein BOURBON BA IS munden. Sofort nach der Schenkung schlagen die fetten Vanille&Fassaromen zu. Hier ist der gute alte Kentucky Whiskey am Start. Wenn man sich traut länger nachzuforschen, kommen wunderbare Kakaobohnendüfte hinzu. Klasse. CHERRY AT LAST 😎. Der leicht angehaferte Trunk pendelt zwischen Röstwahn und schwerwiegenden Maismatschungen.. Ein wundervoll balticporteriges Freshnesserlerlebnis der hopfigen Art, ist das außergewöhnliche Sahnehäubchen für dieses straighte und doch auch sehr spezielle Imperial Stout. Holla!!! Bin gespannt auf das Reseve 😁!! Bomber für spannende 8,95€ aus Haarlem, NL. HOOOTTT!!

Oxytocin (88) - - MAR 9, 2017
bottle, pours dark brown/black with a hint of red. head is brown/red. malty, chocolate, whisky, vanilla, wood, whisky barrel aromas very well integrated. creamy texture, soft carbonisation, full body, well balanced taste. rather easy to drink for an imperial stout because the sweeteness isn’t to intense, it leaves enough space for the other aromas to come through.

PowY (584) - AUSTRIA - MAR 9, 2017
650 bottle. Pours a nearly black red-brown with a small and quickly disappearing brown head. Aroma is only lightly malty with roasted malt - caramel, chocolate - with notes of whisky, light oak and vanilla in front. Full oily body with a very low carbonation. The taste starts medium to medium-heavy sweet, but the sweetness decreases and gives room to a light bitterness. Flavor of sweet roasted malt - caramel, chocolate, coconut, molasses - along with very smooth barrel notes and some alcohol.

adasko (2207) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 24, 2017
UPDATED: APR 8, 2017 Ridiculous beer. Aroma - melted chocolate, belgian pralines, coconuts. Beautiful. In taste a little bit more coffee notes, less sweet than in aroma. Still - full of chocolate with super pleasant whiskey notes. Silky, smooth in the mouth. Staggering beer!

Keg Third of a Pint at BrewDog, Shepherds Bush, London in April 2016 - Opaque Black in colour. Creamy dark beige head. Very Malty; roasty malts, oaty, dark chocolate, espresso coffee, oak, vanilla, bourbon. Fruity; hint of dark fruits. Hoppy; good balancing hop bitterness. Rich, smooth and rather syrupy. Sweet deep roast coffee and chocolate malty throughout. Great depth of flavour. Enjoyed this. Terrific BA Impy Stout! (2016-04-05)
