Black pour with dark tan head. Sweet chocolate malt with oak notes. Sweet chocolate malt and raison gets overwhelmed by whiskey and oak. Finish is wooden. Creamy mouthfeel that drys quickly. Initially rich but finishes too oaky/peaty. (234 characters)

Unique brew in all the good ways. This bottle is labeled 10%, not the 13 listed above

Peaty smell, but not a lot of identifiable scotch taste in beer. There is a unique ethereal spiciness and the mouth is perfect. Sweet imperial milk stout, but not overly so

Worth $12 for 12oz? Nope, but worth trying. In the realm of scotch barrel beer, this has been my best (only) experience (383 characters)

Bottle.
Appearance: black. Thin, tan headdiscipates quickly.
Smell: molasses and oak. Ethyl alcohol.
Taste: chocolate, raisin, fig, tobacco, oak, followed by whisky.
Mouthfeel: low carbonation. Big body. Starts sweet, but dries out.
Overall: this beer is great. Balanced and complex. I hope to find another someday. (326 characters)

Purchased at the Basin Hess in Bushnell's Basin, NY.

This one pours a dark black, with a quarter inch mocha-colored head, and a bit of lacing, not a whole lot.

Smells like scotch, chocolate, brine, peat, oak, and coffee. A lot of cool stuff going on here for sure.

All of the apparent aromas are also there in taste. The scotch character itself is subtle, but definitely there, there however is a good amount of peat and brine character here. The brine character, mixed with the chocolate malt, makes this almost feel taste like some sort of salted chocolate bar. There's a light amount of peat, with a good amount of roasted char character and some coffee beans.

This has a nice, creamy, briny and fairly full mouthfeel, with a pretty full body as well. This has a lower level of carbonation.

This might be the first scotch barrel aged beer I've had, and it was really nice. (880 characters)

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black with a thin film of light brown foam with good retention and lacing. Rich aroma of sweet dark toasted malt, molasses, dark chocolate, licorice and oak; smells like a dessert. Flavor follows, rich dark malt, smoky and toasted, chocolate, licorice, light whisky. Finishes with char, chocolate and hints of lactose. Medium to full bodied with pleasant creaminess. I was hoping I wasn't going to love this one as it was a pricy little bottle, but this is is really full flavored, well balanced and has a nice oaky, char finish with just a light touch of whisky. High ABV well covered. Delicious. (646 characters)

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/4 inch medium brown head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Smoky aroma with some dark roasted malt creating notes of dark chocolate. Moderate booze smell.

T- The dark chocolate flavors are decadent and work very well with the smokiness of the scotch barrel. It makes me think of chocolate honey glaze rub on some ribs or something. Alcohol is extremely well-hidden.

M- Velvety soft and creamy with medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- A great concept for a beer with nearly perfect execution. To ol has earned a spot as one of my favorite Scandinavian breweries with this one. Simply delicious, and this is coming from a guy who's not a particular fan of smokiness in his beer. (948 characters)

Drank from my Duvel Tulip

A - This beer pours a thick black, oily colour with a deep coffee coloured head that reduces to a decent film with thick lacing. Nice

S - Aromas of sweet malt, hop and chocolate. Delicate and yet balanced. impressive

T - Well up front there is some really nice sweet flavours followed by chocolate, coconut, licorice and a nice bitter sweet after taste, that is the result of the whiskey barrel. The booze is a little warming on the finish.

M - A very silky texture and full mouthfeel. The carbonation is perfect.

O - This is the best stout that I have had in some time. The balance here is very impressive as is the mouthfeel. A top brew. I don't think there is much more to ask of a stout. (722 characters)

330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown

Poured pitch black and oil like with no hint of colour even when held up to the light. Dirty brown head poured tight, thick and foamy with a frothy top then faded to thickish coating with thick edging... some good lines of lacing...

Aroma - Lots of rich roasted malts mixed with good does of molasses / treacle sweetness, burnt wood and sooty notes, strong dark sweet coffee, piney hops, some prunes and dates, toasted malt loaf, some fresh vanilla notes, milk chocolate, lots of nutmeg and peppery spiciness...

Taste - Roasted malt bitterness initially followed very quickly by a strong brown sugar / molasses sweetness, some burnt wood notes, rich dark chocolate mixed with some prunes and ripe plums, lots of peppery and piney hops, some milky vanilla traces, light liquorice, some warming alcohol just coming through...

Feel - Superbly rich and creamy and very full bodied... for such a rich and strong beer this is supremely drinkable as the alcohol is almost completely hidden...

Overall - A world class Impy Stout... one of the best (if not the best) examples i've ever had... highly recommended although a little pricey at £7 (1,194 characters)
