COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first Imperial Stouts were high-alcohol concoctions brewed for Czar Peter the Great of Russia. Our own Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout absorbs the tannins of Oola Distiller’s Bourbon Barrels for a full year, resulting in huge roasted malt, chocolate mousse, coconut and ripe cherry flavors that may leave you feeling like a bit of a monarch yourself!

Brown black with a brown head. Aroma and taste are dark fruit, and rich bourbon barrel notes. Very nice sipper. Thanks, Dan, as always. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (7171) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Bottle shared at RBSG. The beer is a thick black with a khaki head of foam. Thick and boozy whiskey. Dry, corny, musky booze. Too much for me. Nearly puked with each sip.

seattleimperial (2) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2017 does not count
Served on tap at Toronado (Seattle). NOSE: Burnt toast + black licorice + barnyard. It’s a fascinating aroma that keeps you second-guessing yourself. APPEARANCE: sexy as hell. Inky but with a nice peanut-colored head. TASTE: Dark Bolivian chocolate (dark dark, like 80%). Wood. Leather. Hint of macadamia nuts. Black licorice. PALATE: Full-bodied. On the chewy side of imperial stouts. Enough carbonation to keep it from being syrupy. Smooth (medium?) finish. OVERALL: One of the most interesting imperial stouts this guy has tasted in awhile. If you’re fan of Evil Twin imperial stouts, I think you’ll dig this.

3.5
Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2017
Black and inky, not much head. Rich stewed fruits, dark chocolate, bourbon and wood. On the palate it’s actually a bit thin. There’s nice brown sugars, and smooth bright bourbon. Yet that body is light. I’m not sure it’s at its potential - and yes, when you see "Pfriem" and "Bourbon Imperial Stout" in the name you do expect a bit more.
