This is very very belgian! As far as imperial stouts go this is similar in flavor but that’s about it. Pours a very effervescent black. White head that fades fast. Aroma is belgian. Fruity with a lot of brown sugar and grape. Flavor is malty and sweet with a lot of sugarcane and a hint of coffee. It’s extremely carbonated which I was not expecting because the bottle says imperial stout... This is a great beer. A little more belgian than stout I think, but great nonetheless.

Interesting hybrid. I would call this a stout-inspired quad. The Belgian notes are all there: carbonation, fruit, and spiciness. A bit of bourbon from the aging. Added to this is some hints of stout notes, chocolate, coffee, roastiness, and so on. Mouthfeel is Belgian all the way, not thick or heavy like you'd expect in a comparable ABV stout. As a quad, it's pretty good, but I wouldn't go into this expecting a stout, regardless of what the label says. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The corked, caged bottle. The pour is dark brown to about black with a moderate, lingering beige head. The aroma reminds me more of dark fruits than chocolate and coffee as advertised but I am clearly getting the oak barrel. Some dark malts. There is an acidic, fruit juice character to the body. But it still lands in the medium to full range. The taste is an improvement over the aroma with a sweet but smooth fruitiness, a sour or tartness, and a moderate lingering bitterness. This was not what I would expect from a stout.

Caramel, woody, strong alcohol taste with rich full flavor, roasty, coffee notes. Very good beer

Very deep red, ring of beige head. Smells like cherries, wine, macerated fruit. Sweet, fruity, medium-to-full bodied. Prunes and raisins. Caramelized sugar.

Roast coffee, chocolate, and Belgian yeast in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet with fruit and Belgian candy flavor, then finishes with roast coffee and chocolate bitterness. Certainly a decent effort, but I think they would have been better served trying to brew a chocolate stout or a Belgian dubbel.

Pours very dark, with tan head. Aroma of a Belgian, mixed with Stout. Interesting blend, but not my favorite. Notes of dark fruit, coffee, and chocolate. Still, a thumbs up.

Dates, raisins, molasses, brown sugar, but not overly sweet, with a liquory finish. A little sticky aftertaste. Love these Barrel Room Collection bottle shapes.

Fruit (cherries?), yeast, vanilla aroma. Pours black with a thick foamy light tan head. Fruit, raisins, a little chocolate and booze on the finish. Lighter bodied than I would have expected.

Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this. Very black, clear body with a tan head. Roasty aroma with some licorice and cut grass. Very sweet and spicy.
