Feb 2015 bottle. 8.5% abv. Aroma is big vanilla and bourbon, moderate chocolate and light coffee. Tastes like bourbon and chocolate. Dry roast in the finish. A touch of heat from the alcohol but not bad. Very solid. Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle to glass. Not a huge barrel presence, but a solid imperial stout nonetheless. Touch of chocolate and roasted malts. olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2015

Dark pour, thanks to northernbrews. Good beer from a great guy. Has some nice molasses notes, bourbon, vanilla, some roast. A bit drier than I expected.

Very complex stout. B strong notes of vanilla, bourbon, and roasted Malts. Smells of bourbon and coffee. Very soft feel on the tongue. Really smooth and tasty. Pours like motor oil with a thin tan head.

On tap at Saugatuck Brewery. Brown to black with a thin brown crown. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, oak, mild vanilla and dark roasted malts. Big and boozy with chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and some raisons. Finishes up rather hot with alcohol. shrubber85 (11448) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Draft. Cherry chocolate malt aroma. Black with small head. Sweet dark chocolate malt followed by intense alcohol finish. Good but a bit boozy.
