On tap at the brewery. Pours pitch black with tan head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, char, vanilla, and espresso. Heavy mouthfeel, yet thinner for most BA stouts I’ve had. Still, it has a velvety texture. Flavor is booze, vanilla bean, espresso, char, chocolate, and finishes with a touch of bourbon that lingers a touch. Solid.
12 oz foil dressed bottle, sent over by prufrockstar. Huge thanks for this one my friend! You supplied quite the beer for my celebratory evening, and for that, I owe you! What an incredible beer this is. Listed at 10.9% Pours a jet black, with a thin, but lasting tan foam head. A sweet chocolate heavy aroma, some pretty strong whiskey impressions. Flavor remains on the chocolate side, and has much more whiskey flavor, than overall booziness. A warming finish, but still without being boozy. Thick body, chocolate, wood, and soft vanilla notes. An amazing imperial to say the least. Loved it. pkomar (497) - Poznan, POLAND - JUL 4, 2017
Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and a bit of cocoa. Tongue is full of bourbon, wood and chocolate with vanilla appearing here and there and coming on its own in the aftertaste. Pretty good. Weakest side of this beer is its palate - too much carbonation, not enough body and boozy mouthfeel. At the end of the day its quite tasty, but leaving it in a cellar for a year or 2 wouldnt do it harm. rleao (12) - - JUN 15, 2017
Pours black. Medium body. Whisky aroma is noticeable in the after taste. Vanilla comes all well. Balanced but a little sweet tough aleksander9 (1788) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2017

This is a very good beer. Black pour with a thicker tan head. There is a distinct vanilla and bourbon aroma. Chocolately with fig and barley present. Overall enjoyable and sippable.

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.
