Today I had a chance to taste this near black beer. In the glass it had just a ring of tan head. Aroma was great! You could smell mainly barrel, dark chocolate, coffee and rum (even though it was bourbon BA), wow! In taste it was very similar, with addition on vanilla and some roastiness. It is rather sweet (#teamslodyczka), but in a way, I really liked it. I think it is greatly balanced and if you like barrel aged beers you won't be disappointed. llkc (2663) - århus, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2017

Bottle at the 10th Boise Imperial Stout Tasting. Dark brown, near black pour with a ring of tan head. Lots of roast, some cocoa, and a little smoke in the aroma. A sturdy flavor profile is heavy in roast, hints of bittersweet cocoa. Light smoke. Haven’t had any of the barreled versions, but I bet this makes a great base beer; tasty enough on it’s own too. stevoj (5432) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 28, 2017
Draft at Ale Arsenal. Black and inky, slick and slippery, bold and boozy. Straight up, in your face imperial stout. Perfect to sip and enjoy. No need to rush on this one... bytemesis (8970) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 28, 2017
Bottle. Base beer. How interesting. My first thought on taking a sip was that it has a bit of smoke to it; now I read the description. That smokiness gets totally lost in all of the barrel aged versions I have tried. Anway... Pours opaque black, small tan head, a bit bubbly but nice residual and good lacing. Aroma has a note of smoke and loads of cocoa, molasses, dark roast. Flavor follows, light plus sweet, medium bitter, nice smokey note along with baking cocoa, molasses. Unfortunately the smoke brings with it the faintest hint of burned rubber, but its not enough to really detract. I like the fact that it isn’t crazy sweet, and has more of a cocoa/roast base than a lot of English Impys that are more on the molasses/licorice side of things. Full body, mouthfeel a bit less creamy than the best but not bad. Clearly a solid straight, un-barreled, un-adjunctified, imperial stout.
