This is definitely a stout for people who like sweet stouts. Heavily pecan-scented and smooth -- almost too smooth, given the high alcohol content. It’s very easy to drink this beer too quickly, so be careful.

Poured from bottle from cellar (2013 bottle). Pours a very dark black with minimal light brown head. I’m a bit stuffy right now so I’ll give aromas and flavors best I can - aromas of dark fruity esters, caramel, chocolate. You can really taste the bourbon barrel and get hints of vanilla, caramel, coffee, and at 13% alcohol it is surprisingly un-hot on the throat, but you can certainly feel it in your stomach. Carbonation level is very lively, with lots of small prickly bubbles on the palate and a very oily, thick, mouthfeel.

Pours a dark black with beige head. Nose is fruity nutty and roast coffee. Taste is roast nuts, coffee, light bourbon and sweet brown sugar. There is a bit of a sweet sticky aftertaste.

On tap at Capones and a bottle enjoyed more leisurely at home courtesy of Capones as well. Black with a brown head. Lots of roasted chocolate malt, some anise, whiskey, oak, char, vanilla. Alcohol is well hidden, smooth, full body, moderate carbonation, balanced and tasty.

Bomber shared by TJ - a sweet bomb with a nutty taste. Bourbon of course. Solid.

Pitch black in the glass. The smell is not my thing. But the taste is very decent balanced.

Notes from 8/3/2013 22 oz bomber, actively sold to me by a great sales person at BevMo. A: super dark brown-black like most Imperial Stouts. The head starts at two fingers and fades down to a thick film on top. Very fine bubbles and a nice dark tan color. Lacing is very nice too. S - Definitely strong bourbon, chocolate and nutty notes. A little like an alcoholic chocolate peanut butter cup. Dark malts. Not too much alcohol smell at 13% ABV, nicely covered. A nice wheat smell comes out as it warms up too. T - Strong chocolate, almond, pecans, peanut butter, coffee, espresso, a nice bourbon flavor that makes the alcohol bite very appropriate and expected. You can definitely tell this guy is 2.4% ABV higher than Stone Imperial Russian Stout, and it’s great! As it warms up there’s some dark fruit flavors in there too. I can’t taste much of the wheat/rye malt in there, but at 13% alcohol there’s so much else going on. M - Heavy mouthfeel, leaves a nice coffee aftertaste, even a little bit of smooth alcohol flavors lingering in your mouth. O - I’m glad I tried this beer. It’s different, and it’s awesome that Stone invited homebrewers outside the brewing industry to brew one with them. Definitely increases my respect for them as a craft brewery. The only Imperial Stout I’ve had that was stronger than this was Mikkeller Black which was 17.5% and it was flat and had a bad taste to it. I’m happy to see that the carbonation is still there and the tastes are all good even at 13%. As far as special release beers goes, this is probably a one time for me, ranking below Stone’s Espresso Imperial Russian Stout, which I’d have again and again. The Espresso IRS just has a smoother taste to it, but still the same complexity.

Near black with a then khaki head. Oily lacing. Amazing aroma. Sweet caramel, raisin bread, and booze. Taste is caramel, char, dark fruits, and some hot alcohol. Alcohol is slightly numbing on the tongue.
