italianjohn (3094) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Black pour with a thick tan/khaki head and a little frothy with decent sticky striped lacing .... aroma of bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts, light oak, and light vanilla .... taste is of bitter dark chocolate, bitter hops, dark roasted malts and dry oak ... as it warms more of the vanilla and a hint of bourbon comes out with a decent spicy bite and a slight hint of booze .... finish is bitter and dry ... mouthfeel is slick and oily .... a nice solid imperial stout, but while the bourbon wasnt all that evident the oak gave it some depth

Not too smoky, big imperial stout, but still not as smooth as I like an imperial to be.

ludhaber (126) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2017
This is a big beer. Lots of complexity to think through. Roasted malt with the darker malt providing probably a little too much astringency. The finish from the bourbon barrel is fun. Theres some vanilla in there too, thats nice.

drsordr (2587) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Several year old bottle shared by alexsdad06 was an immediate gusher on opening. Nose some gym sock funk. Then some toffee, barrel, bourbon, and light mineral chocolate. Taste some fleeting tart funk up front, them some of the expected beer. Chocolate, mineral, and light barrel.

stchloe (1017) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Smelled really bourbony, and definitely had the flavor, a little too dark malt burntness, not a lot going on beyond bourbon, dark malt, and booze.

Aroma of whiskey, plums and fruit, pours a dark black with a thin tan head. Taste of dark berries and malt with an oily feel and a bourbon and malt finish.

AgentAle (1713) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, light tart and chocolate. Taste is rich deep malts, toffee, caramel and dark chocolate. Light tart and dark sugars round out the experience. Appearance is black with a medium brown head that retains fairly well.

cmacklin (1091) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2016
650ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with a medium, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, licorice, bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate and oak. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, vanilla, dark fruit and oak with a dry, warming bourbon finish. Medium to full body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Very nice.
