Aroma chocolate, roasty, woody, bourbon,
Appearance black, tan foam, brown foam,
Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter,
Palate medium body,
Overall nice barrel character with vanilla and bourbon. A little thinner than I would have liked but the taste makes me look past that. I would suggest this beer to a friend. nimbleprop (8597) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 25, 2017
12oz bottle from Salud pours an opaque black with some thin grey head, no legs. Nose has cola, vanilla, heavy molasses, licorice, some dried cherry, burnt coconut meat. Flavor is chocolate cherry cordial, chocolate covered espresso bean, some toasted wood, a little soy/umami, dark fruits too. Finishes full bodied, boozy and lightly astringent.

Delicious take on this beer. Aroma was big and full. Strong vanilla, bourbon and chocolate. Pour was a deep dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was huge and flavorful. Strong chocolate, vanilla and wood flavors. Nice bourbon backbone. As t warmed some caramel and roasted malt because more noticeable.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2017 Poured a dark, dark brown with a healthy tan head which lingered.....aroma is chocolate, bourbon, vanilla.....taste is smooth as if oats are involved, chocolate up front, booze, cherry, bourbon, oaked vanilla, licorice takes over huge and dwarfs all the other flavors then won’t let go.

Bottle in Seattle. Rainy night tasting. Huge thanks to Chris for sending these to me awhile ago. Tasted side by side with the regular version. Thin foam, slightly thicker head and heavier body than the regular version. Deep bourbon and chocolate nose. Pleasing. Dark licorice with a creamy barrel. Loses some of the sharpness and uniqueness of the original. A bit foamy in the mouth, lots of boozy qualities. Dark chocolate. Certainly not an improvement on the original, this takes the profile in quite a different direction. Earthiness, fresh oak, Stefan mentioned thyme and rosemary, which make some sense. I just don’t see what the bourbon adds, which alongside the fizzy character obliterates the lovely roast and crushed coffee of the original. But nice, overall. SinH4 (5900) - Garching b.

Bottle, thanks luttonm! Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma is bourbon wood, with caramel and vanilla, but also quite phenolic. Taste is more vanilla and caramel, but it’s not very intense. Surprisingly fizzy carbonation. Does not gain at all from barrel aging. AcctError31456 (620) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2017
The aroma is malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla and a little caramel. Pours black with an amber hue, tan head mostly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is sweet, then a little bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively, the finish long. Very Good!! fiulijn (20992) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2017

Black color, the head is small. The aroma is moderate, there is roasted malt, bourbon, some wood. Soft mouthfeel; nice chocolate flavor, with a creamy character, and a mild vanilla and tobacco accent from the barrel; I like sweeter Imperial Stouts, but this is also very good.
