[6213-20140305] Bottle. Soya and roasted syrup aroma. Black body with a quick foamy tan head. More soya sauce and roasted burnt barrel in the flavour. Full body is quite smooth. Tasty. (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8 cmacklin (1275) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
355 ml bottle. A black beer with a very thin, dark brown head. Sweet aroma of bourbon, liquorice, dark chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, liquorice, dark chocolate and a dry, bitter coffee finish with a warming bourbon aftertaste that lingers. Medium to full body with a thick, oily texture and soft carbonation. Very complex and surprisingly good. I can’t believe this came out of Saskatchewan. A must try. jtclockwork (17100) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle at weekly tasting. Shared by me. Thanks Kevin. Pours black brown head. Nose/taste of roast chocolate, dirty cocoa, vanilla, coffee and whiskey/oak. Medium body. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. Black pour with tan head. Dark roasted, sweet, and other sugar like aromas. Sweet flavors,caramel, chocolate, caramel and other nice sweet notes. mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
355mL bottle, pours jet black with a small brown head. Nose brings out rich wood, bourbon barrels, and some roasted malt in back - very complex. Flavour is exceptionally well-balanced, with many different elements working in good harmony - with moderate bourbon barrels of high quality, a little wood, some roasted malt and a little caramel. Now this is how you do a bourbon barrel imperial stout. Extremely highly drinkable and smooth on the palate. Wonderful stuff.

2011 bottle as part of a mystery box sent by Dresden, thanks man! Dark viscous pour with minimal chocolate tan head, looks like chocolate syrup. Aroma is oak, vanilla, some slight sour, ash, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste, lots of chocolate, very syrupy, with light carbonation, some maple bourbon, oak, very smooth finish with no heat from the booze. Excellent RIS, well done! crossovert (13730) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2014

Bottle thanks to Kevin. Lots of ash tobacco and booze in every aspect but still ends enjoyably.
