Even though I sometimes find bourbon barrel aged beers tedious, I love the way they smell, without fail. This one smells great, too. Restrained bourbon, lots of chocolate and vanilla as it warms. Not bad at all. pumpmaster (1430) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2011
22 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $6.99 Very good! Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Dark Brown Pour with Ruby highlights.
Aroma is strong bourbon, chocolate.
Straight forward flavour of chocolate, dark roast maltiness, bourbon and hints of dark fruit.
A little thin in the body. ryanfolty (2585) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2011

Dark brown pour, good head and lacing, somewhat lacking in the body, bourbon aroma and in the taste. BVery (11240) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle at MN Gathering @ Skyview V. Dark brown pour with red highlights. Cream colored ring for a head. Aroma is wood, bourbon, and cocoa. Thinner palate. Taste is chocolate and a touch of bourbon.

Dark brown. The bourbon fans out there rejoyce, I can smell it from two feet away. Vinous bourbon on the aroma and not much else. Chalky body, with a little chocolate. Jlo7399 (218) - Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Pours pitch black with tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma is a little sweet chocolate but big bourbon. Taste is black liquorice, cocoa, and huge bourbon booziness. Mouthfeel is surprising a little fizzy for what I was expecting. Good stuff, thanks Juice. theisti (4182) - Kansas, USA - NOV 3, 2011
22 oz bottle courtesy of Suttree. Pour is deep black, touch of reddish, opaque, with a smaller well formed khaki head. Aroma of bitter sweet cocoa, roast maltiness, some oak woodiness and a bunch of boozy Bourbon. Nose is mostly about the Bourbon, particularly as it warms. Taste is the nose, in equal measures. Again, bitter sweet cocoa along with roast malt and wood - dominated by Bourbon. Palate is medium and a bit slick, with a long boozy finish. All in all, this is certainly a Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout. Thanks for this one Phil! tgncc (3140) - Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2011
The aroma is oak, boubon, chocolate, vanilla. The apearnce is a deep black, light brown head. The flavor is chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, some oak. This is what I think all barrel aged beers should be. I always gripe when the beer is overpowered by bourbon. Not the case here. The bourbon actually compliments the beer nicely. The finish is bourbon, sweet, pine hops. Medium/thick to thick in body. Excellent. Well done for a barrel aged impy stout. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 19, 2011
22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a thick, lacy, tan head. Aroma of oak and bourbon, roasted malts with hints of chocolate, and some grassy hops. The flavors don’t really blend as well as they could, and the beer isn’t as thick as it should be. Still pretty good though.
