Bottle (22 oz) at tasting. Thanks to Matthew for this bottle! Black with a small brown head leaving little lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts, toffee, honeyed sweetness and fruity raisins-like notes. Taste is sweet but not overly so with roasted malts, bourbon, vanilla, oak, honeyed sweetness and mild fruitiness. Full body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Honeyed finish with a light alcohol warmth. Very good Imperial Stout. Feels heavier - not in a bad way - than the abv suggest. Tasty stuff.

Bouteille 650ml, bottle share. Couleur noire opaque, absence de mousse. Arôme de Bourbon, malt torréfié, miel. Goût de Bourbon, chocolat noir, malt torréfié, épicé, un peu sucré. Carbonatation faible, corps dense, huileuse. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Le nez me fait penser à un hydromel noir. Pas vilain mais différent et singulier. Au goût, les tentacules du bourbon se lovent autour d’une mélasse riche. En bouche, le corps est huileux et collant. En finale, c’est doux et sans réelle amertume, pleine de bourbon caramélisé avec un souffle fin de malts rôtis. Très bon.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a near pitch black color with a small tan head. Aroma was a bourbon blast. Very smooth. Roast. Chocolate. Lots of vanilla. jnkor (477) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Aroma is dark and toasty with a small bit of booze and malt. Looks deep black in the glass with a caramel colored ring head. Taste is initially sweet, then the carbonation carries the sweetness fully and malty. Finish isn’t syrupy, but rather dry, leaving a nice feeling that the beer isn’t too thick.
