Not the mouth feel I like in a stout. It’s a good stout otherwise. It’s a little watery for me. milewide (2218) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Very dark brown color. Sweet with Belgium yeast aroma and taste...but not much stout roast flavor. Average! AndyW68 (1541) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Dark brown pour with thin white head. Aroma of sweet dark fruit, bread and vanilla. Taste follows nose with an addition of sweet bourbon. ilovedarkbeer (2737) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours a black brown color with a puffy off white head. Notes of bubblegum, milk chocolate, toffee, and fresh air. Interesting beer. alliance100 (1137) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2015
22oz bottle - pours a dark brown thin off white head . Faint dark fruit , bready sweet aroma . Medium thin bottle , sweet finish . Not bad for the price .

Pours absolute Black with a roasted malt/coffe nose and a thin little brown head that very quickly dissipates leaving a thin ring around the edge of the glass with extremely little carbonation. Taste is dominated by coffee and dark chocolate with the bourbon and vanilla balancing them and toning down the toasty malt. Body is full. The Belgian yeast has "married" the flavors well. 22 oz bottle with a bottle conditioned date of 11/14. There was a day but it was obliterated by handling. As an Imperial Stout, I find it far more interesting than the usual. Its lack of significant carbonation makes it a great drink with chocolate or fruit. It is an aperitif/liqueur without the carbonation and high alc and sweetness. Enjoy it! SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
Liquide presque noir qui ne forme qu’une éphémère mousse. Dans mon nez, il y a des traces de tabac, du chocolat, des épices (anis?) et beaucoup de fruits foncés. Sur mes papilles, le cacao, le caramel, les fruits comme les prunes, les raisins et ou les figues s’imprègnent de saveurs qui rappellent le bourbon. En bouche, un corps en pleine possession de ses moyens avec sa texture huileuse et ses bulles belges. En finale, une impression d’abt orientée vers le rôti. Pas si mal comme bière même si elle me semble un peu trop sucrée. malrubius (2857) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle from Brewtopia. Black with no head or lace. Some banana fruitiness with chocolate and wet wood aroma. Very sweet lightly roasted chocolate with some raisin fruit and roasted herbal and woody bitterness. Very low carbo, not even sure if the bottle was sealed well. Slick oily and unblended due to lack of carbo. Overly sweet. Mouth coating bitter fruity sweetness. All wrong beginning with the texture, probably due to the aging and blending. You do not have to "set aside" and blend this beer IMHO. Puhhhlease. Just brew it and give it to us fresh. Jow (3897) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours fine black not much head. Nose of roasted malt and licorice. Tastes of chocolate,licorice, roasted malt, dark bread, plum, tobacco, hint of bourbon. Dry palate not overall sweet. Some yeasty finish. GIJOE (1196) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Pours black with a thick, foamy, tan head. Nice lacing. Good retention.
Nose is roasted grain with bold chocolate notes. Hints of vanilla. Taste is balanced. Chocolaty aftertaste. Medium body, mild carbonation. Quite smooth and pleasing.
