A pitch black beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of alcohol and chocolate. The flavor is dominated by chocolate, but also some roasted notes, leading to a smooth but dry finish. The alcohol is very well hidden in the flavor, but gives it a nice body. A nice Imperial Stout. joergen (29598) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2005

Bottled. Opaque black colour, maybe very dark brown. Small brown head. Strong alcohol (whiskyish) aroma along with some hints of roasted malts, coffee and toffee. Strong chocolate mixed with whisky and some roasted malts. Aftertaste is where alcohol comes in. Very smooth and tasteful Impy stout. Travlr (26405) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2010
Tap at Black Squirrel. Dark maroon, thin tan head, scant lacing. Aroma of whiskey, wood, vanilla beans. Taste has whiskey up front and personal, and a slight smoke finish. madmitch76 (26366) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011

Imperial Stout aged in oak barrels. Opaque black beer. Short lived dark tan head. Smooth stout - no harshness, dryness or bitterness. Silky chocolate coffee malt nicely balanced by soft vanilla oak. Nice beer but lacks the sumptuos luxurious nature of the best Impy Stouts.

Bottled. Very black, firm brownish head. Strong wood aroma. Sweet with notes of vanilla. licorice and coffee. Extreme oak barrel flavour going like a bulldozer across other flavours diminishing them to gravel. I very much like oak barrel beers, but this beer has no balance whatsoever. Interesting as a prototypical barrel aged beer, but leaves a lot of room for improvement.
