SDalkoholic (2365) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a dark black stout with a thick development of foam head which eventually retreated. Aroma is surprisingly faint with all traces of this being an impy stout have been erased from the barrel aging process, however, the oak barrels are the only noticeable smell I gain through my nose. The drink is harsh with a stinging taste of tart tannins while a semi-sweet sugary taste of malts and slight burn from the alcohol finish this beer on a wrong note. Maybe it has too many months on the shelf since this was released awhile ago and hasnt had the most ideal bottle aging conditions but this is my current standing.

A dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has a wild mixture of black cherry, plum, vanilla, and oak. It has a medium body with lively carbonation. The taste is tart with an almost sour finish. This one may have been infected.

RRistow12 (741) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black with tan head. Aroma is robust chocolate with some caramel and toffee. Taste doesn't live up to the expectation. Some sour funk. Weird combination of the Belgian yeast and spices with the chocolate and coffee. Not bad but not as good as most Sam Adams beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
