UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 750 ml. bottle. Opaque black with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is sour berries and cocoa. Taste is tart blackberry, dates, plums, coffee, clove and hints of oak and cocoa. Medium-heavy body has medium carbonation and is well balanced, with a well hidden 9%.

Black pour with a dark brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, oak, chocolate, fruity. Taste is sweet, chocolate, spicy, oak, roasted malt. The dk fruit flavor came out more as the beer warmed up. A nice tasty beer, nice lacing. Thanks for another tasty beer Mr. Koch.

Okay, first off this is not a stout. Its a sour with stout/chocolate sweet notes, Aroma is of dates/cherries, chocolate, with a note of medium roast coffee. Definitely strong on the dried fruit. I feel like this is primarily a Belgian style ale with notes of a stout. All of the flavors they describe are there.This tastes like sour chocolate. I love the aroma........

Sam Adams should do better. Given the cost of this beer was expecting something not so shallow and without flavor. This is like drinking Storm King when mixed with water. Very sub par beer. Shame on you Sam Adams.

Bomber into pint glass. A: Dark brown with reddish edges. A little bit of light pass through and a light tan head. S: Weak aroma of rum raisin, toffee, coffee, and chocolate. Light fruit notes, dates or tart cherries. T: Deep sweet barleywine with a presence of alcohol, chocolate, cherry or cranberry, and a bit of metallic oak. M: Medium carbonation gets flushed out by the tart, sweet attack of the fruit. The fruit lingers long after the chocolate leaves. O: less sweet than the criminally bad elf (recent tried). A decent barleywine but sweeter than I would have liked. Would do again at 9% though.

When compared to other, better Oaked Imperial Stouts. In fact, the oak in this beer is more of an off-flavor than anything else. Im glad I had this at a tasting as I wouldnt have to drink the entirety of the bottle. Tried at the winter beer tasting in Dec. 2012. Courtesy of Brandon.

Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Nose is yeast and spice at first, cocoa and oak as it warms. Tastes of cocoa, light amount of oak, dark fruits, and yeast. Silky mouthful.

These are the coolest bottles Ive seen in some time. As far as the beer is concerned, ehhh, this one could be better. Pours black with a red tinge and tan head. Aroma is primarily Belgian funk, with some notes of chocolate. Lively carbonation in the mouth, with some notes of coffee / chocolate. Finishes sticky with notes of funky sour cherry.
