Snoop59 (105) - Penn Run, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2010
On cask at the King of Prussia Location. Pulled into a snifter. Pours a deep, dark black with a small, frothy tan head that lasted throughout and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is a great bourbon-oak and vanilla. Flavor is very smooth bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and roasted malt. Incredibly well-balanced. Full bodied. Nice warming finish, not overwhelming. Soft carbonation. Really tasty. Great Imperial Stout.

Cask at KOP location. Pours a deep black with a large creamy tan head that laced. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, oak, chocolate, tobacco and yeah lots of bourbon in nose. Flavor of bourbon, vanilla, tobacco, nuts and chocolate.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Cask at KoP BrewPub (at 9.5%ABV): Aroma of bourbon, milk chocolate, and oak. Poured black in color with a medium to large-sized, creamy, dense, brown head that lasted throughout. Opaque. Not sparkling. Decent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of bourbon, light roasted malts, light chocolate, and light alcohol. Medium body. Slightly thin texture. Cask carbonation. Bourbon and slight roasted malt finish. Even their Cask beers are served way too cold!!!!

hopdog (12208) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2005
On tap at the KoP location. Hand pump/cask conditioned. Poured a dark black color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of bourbon, some chocolate and roasted malts. Light vanilla in the tastes. The non barrel aged version was better.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2005
KOP near Philly: Watery and bland. It seemed all the time in the barrel robbed this beer of any semblance of flavor. Decent lacing though.

hand bottled from zathrus13.Thanks Jeff.This is a really dark brew,no head at all.Nose is some oak,vanilla and bourbon.It is thin onthe tongue but the flavors of the Imp. Stout are not over powered by the Bourbon.Not a bad brew.

egajdzis (6437) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Cask... Poured an opaque black color with a medium sized tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, light chocolate and roast. Watery chocolate roast taste, hot bourbon alcohol finish. Thin mouthfeel, barrel aging gone wrong.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 On tap, and available in growlers. Pours dark brown/black, with a small, tan/brown head. Aroma is bourbon, malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is similar to the aroma, with bourbon out front. Very little carbonation. The body is on the light side, especially for an Imperial Stout. This is one of the better beers I’ve had at Rock Bottom, but I wish they’d go the extra step with their cask conditioned beers.
