Bottle share thanks Aaron. Pours jet Black with beige head and great lacing on the glass. Smell is thick bourbon vanilla and chocolate. Taste is definitely bourbon, vanilla, light chocolate and maybe some dark fruit after taste. Overall a very good beer I wasn’t expecting such a great mixture between bourbon and stout with just enough hop bittering to finish the beer off.
Keg Half Pint at White Horse American Beer Festival 2009, Parsons Green, London in July 2009 - Pitch Black in colour. Very Malty; roast/burnt malts, caramel, burnt sugar, chocolate, espresso, oak, vanilla. Fruity; dark fruits. Hoppy; earthy herbal hops. Warming alcohol quite evident. Roast malty with a slightly bitter edge. Terrific Imperial Stout! (2009-07)

On tap at the source. Aromas of cocoa, dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon. Flavors of anise, cocoa, ripe plum, boy ton finish. Oily beer. Kelarman (4) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2016 does not count
Wake up Dead imp. Stout. (Love the name)
Nice, dark, chewy. This has aged a bit, because the alcohol heat is present but mellowed. Bitter hop toward the end, but not overpowering. Definitely a sit, sip and enjoy a good book while listening to "Suzy Q", yes that is playing right now. Giochaurand (533) - FINLAND - DEC 25, 2015

Draft at the Lizardville. Small snifter pour is jet black with a small mocha head. Aroma is big roasted malts, burnt toast, so dark chocolate, and Nestle Quick. Taste is again big roasted, toasted malts. Almost burnt . Dark chocolate, some bitter coffee grounds, some woodniess, some booze, and caramel. Medium body, medium carb. Almost burnt finish. Mediocre. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
A little heavy on the char flavor. Bitter but not watery. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Draft at world of beer in Denver. Pours pitch black with a small white head. The aroma has very little to speak of. I asked my wife to smell to make sure I’m not off. The taste has a lot of oak, vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, a bit sweet. Not a bad brew by any means but not exceptional either. kevinator (2574) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Malty aroma with hints of oak and chocolate. Breautiful dark color with a tan foamy head. Heavy weight with a smoothness. Flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, wood and a slight bitter finish. Good stuff.
