(2015 375ml bottle from Mikkeller Webshop) Pours pitch black with the barest few tiny bubbles ringing the glass. Aroma has loads of dark chocolate bar, Caramilk candy, bourbon, vanilla bean, marzipan, oak, a tiny bit of a spiced/herbal cola note in the background. Bit of alcohol. Flavour has a sweet core of milk chocolate and brown sugar with lots of bourbon and vanilla immediately apparent. A little cola, with soft dried dark fruit and nut notes. Oak quite clear from the middle on. Some toast in the finish but not heavily roasted. Moderately high alcohol heat. A bit thin for style with very low carbonation. A nice bourbon BA imp stout, balanced but maybe lacking some weight and punch to take it into the top echelon, especially in the mouthfeel. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2015

Black with low lasting tan head. Bourbon aroma!
Taste is Bourbon too but also some coffee. Not burnt at all, a Little roasted, not hoppy. Sweet and big Bourbon niceness:-) Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2015
A depth of flavors going on here - moleasses, chocolate, bourbon, oak, booze, coffee. So malty, so complex, so strong. Dig it.

From tap at CBC 2015. Black with a beige head. Aroma and flavour of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, vanilla, bourbon, alcohol, chocolate and oak. furthur (1214) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle, opaque, oily black beer, bubbly almond colored head dissapeared immediately. Aroma is molasses, bourbon, hugely vanilla, rootbeer, broiled dark fruit, sweet chocolate. Taste is vanilla, molasses, coffee, oak, figs, pecans, bourbon, toasted barley. This is so much better than I thought it would be. Not nearly as sweet, fairly roasty, and big flavors! Palate is rich and thick, carbonation subdued. It’s a little hot. Another year or two might really make this shine!
