Chocolate, vanilla, oak. Great bittersweet flavours. Very long length. Very elegant in the glass. onceblind (9442) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Black pour with a thin khaki head. Nose has some sweet bourbon and vanilla/brown sugar notes, along with a nougaty milk chocolate. Tastes really big and robust with big sweet dark chocolate flavors, a bit of charred oak, some caramelly bourbon, a light kiss of vanilla and brown , and a touch of mocha java. Ermahgerd amazing.

Aromas of vanilla, subtle coconut, sweet bourbon, grilled cherry, subtle booze. Black with a lasting small tan ring of head foam. Dark chocolate, char, bourbon, earthy. Full bodied. therealcolby (1) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2015 does not count
Pours coal black with a two fingers of a thick, tan head. The nose is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak and booze. The taste is consistent with best BA Stouts: complex with strong notes of coffee, chocolate, oak, and subtle vanilla booziness.
its a perfect dessert.

Pours pitch black liquid with a mocca head. Aroma is dark chocolate, some coffee, vanilla, oak and bourbon. Taste reflects the aroma. Very smooth, well balanced and with an alcohol finish. Would buy again if it woundnít be for the price. One of the best imperial stouts I had. zizzybalubba (1862) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap at the barrel-aged tasting at World Of Beer-Cherry Creek in Denver, CO during GABF week. Black pour with a foamy khaki head. Wonderful aroma of German chocolate cake, vanilla, and oak. The taste does not disappoint; rich chocolate and coffee blend with bourbon and oak for a great imperial stout. Incredibly smooth for a beer of this complexity and ABV. An outstanding beer! dwyerpg (6078) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Beautiful opaque color, thick brown head. This is really quite excellent. Thick and roasty, with notes of dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla, I donít really get much coffee, which makes me happy. Also, while itís strong, it doesnít have that alcoholic flavor. Great stuff.
