The first batch of Imperial Jones Dog we ever brewed found its way into some Heaven Hill and Buffalo Trace barrels for 10 months and we are sure glad it did. The imperial milk stout brewed with cacao nibs and vanilla beans came out of the barrel with wonderful notes of bourbon, oak, barrel char, vanilla, coconut, dark fruits and dark chocolate. Delicious now or good to cellar in a temperature controlled environment.

I've had over forty of Pipeworks' beers.
This may not be my favorite, but it was the best.
Damn glad I was able to get it at an independent store, as the big box chain in the area didn't have it when I called at 2 but somehow got it and sold out by 3:15 the same afternoon.

Picked up in a trade and poured into a stubbed tulip glass.
Pours dark mahogany/almost black with a nice tan head, good retention and minor amounts of lace. Aroma is sweet rye whiskey, chocolate, molasses and vanilla. Flavor follows aroma - a lot of whiskey, chocolate and vanilla, some sweetness on the back end but finishes dry and boozy - very well balanced - absolutely phenomenal. Mellow carbonation, medium-bodied with some heat and dryness on the finish.

Batch 209

12oz into HotD tulip

Moderate pour leaves extremely thin head. Quiet. Dark. Opaque.

I get virtually nothing off the nose.

Taste however is unexpected. Sweet. Smooth. Dark fruit and vanilla. Not a lot of barrel character. Finished with s slight alcohol burn. Quite enjoyable really.

Would definitely seek this out again and as it warms I'm thinking I may have rated it a bit low.

This is an excellent barrel aged chocolate stout. Pours dark with a good, light touch of carbonation. Upon opening a wave of bourbon from the Buffalo Trace barrels hits you with a huge boozy aroma. This is a beer to serve at room temperature, where the chocolate and vanilla notes can be felt the best. Outstanding, and worth every penny.
