Ibrew2or3 (8392) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2017
2015-2016 vintage (new) $19 bomber (ouch!) pours with a deep dark mahogany colored body that supports a thin light mocha head. The aroma modest offers up rich chocolate notes, chocolate brownie, molasses nuance spicy oak, a dash of marshmallow and then soft thin bourbon echoes. The taste delivers a bourbon boozy experience thats right there but pretty well restrained and blended into chocolate, some thin sweet prune and date notes as well as highly roasted malts. It picks up thin muddled spicy oak toward midway just as it gets a hint of marshmallow. Toward the finish the thin soft sweet bourbon bubbles to the surface along with a pleasing sliver of toffee. This is pretty nice. The bourbon could be a tad further restrained but it certainly doesnt get in the way of the tasty beer notes. For the big price tag Im not sure the value is there to ever get another bottle.

Black as the night with a nice foamy brown head. Wonderful blend of imperial porter, oak and bourbon. High complexity. Very subtle. , sweet fruits, bourbon, tannins, roasted tones, caramel, etc. Great mouthfeel, carbonation just right. Sweet and light bitter in the finish. Brilliant!

On tap at Final Gravity. Pours near black with a modest tan head and a huge treacle and vanilla aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with a lot of bourbon. A great sipper.

Batavi (376) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2016
Voor de eerste keer geproefd bij de Vinotake in Waalwijk, tijdens proeverij in proefglas, de 2e keer thuis nogmaals, uitgeschonken in een To Øl Teku glas. Schenkt gitzwart uit, met een kleine lichtbruine schuimkraag die zich terugtrekt tot een fijne schuimring. Prachtige aroma's van: karamel/toffee, chocolade, pruimen, bourbon, honing whiskey. Het smaakpallet is complex, verwarmend alcoholisch. Met tonen van karamel, chocolade, koekjes, in het begin iets scherper: koffie, sojasaus, laurierdrop, maar als het bier opwarmt steeds zoeter en zachter, en ook meer complexer, door de bourbon, vanille, hout en leer tonen. De afdronk is medium lang, zacht bitter met verwarmende bourbon notities. Ook dit 2e bier na de Outcast Dead Imperial Red Ale van Ironfire vind ik zeer geslaagd, een mooi bier deze Imperial Porter. Ik hoop dat ik er ooit nogmaals aan kan komen. Was ook een mooie afsluiter van de tasting bij de Vinotake, die avond. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On cask at Real, Wild & Woody Beer Festival, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out heaps of vanilla beans dominating, along with booze. Flavour is loaded with vanilla beans, followed by cocoa and a touch of booze. Full-bodied and smooth. Excellent.

skortila (5504) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
Bottled @ BeerTemple. 30 cl sample. The aroma has bourbon/vanilla/wood, dark chocolate, moccha, liquorice, light roast. Dark black coloured beer with a beige, thick, medium head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has malty and vanilla sweetness, dark chocolate, moccha. Medium-full bodied. Very nice, but well bit too expensive still.

Lhes pikimusta, hivenen lpinkyv, reunoille kahvimaisesti hipyv vaahto. Tuoretta ja intensiivist makeutta, luumua? Suuntuntuma vetisempi kuin oletin, lakritsaa, vienoa alkoholia. Jlkimaussa enemmn runkoa ja tunnetta, mys voimakkaampana alkoholia., jotain kevytt saippuaa ehk mys? Oudosta sivumausta huolimatta hyv kamaa tmkin.
