Brewed by:
Nebraska Brewing Company
Nebraska, United States

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Black as night and every bit Imperial, this RIS was originally launched to tremendous accolades. Going further, this Stranahan’s Whiskey barrel aged version meshes the rich chocolates, the coffee-like aromatics with the sweet whiskey nose and drying character of the oak. Slightly behind on the palette are the hops – held in restraint by the wonderfully full mouthfeel and broad flavors brought on by the perfect blend of so many malted barley varieties. Ready to enjoy upon release and perfect for extended cellaring.

I have too say I was excited to get this, but man what a disappointment. No notes that everyone is getting, just tasted like a plain stout!! No chocolate or oak what so ever. Sorry just fellas, really disappointed.

750ml bottle $18.99. Super huge head, odd for such a big barrel aged stout. Aroma is odd, off, boozy yet almost sour. Flavor had the slightest touch of sourness and I suspect it was infected. The body was very thin. Drainpour.

Kkottonmouthkngz flew this one over the pond and dropped it, and a whole slew of other brews, on my head a couple weeks back. I had a great time at De Wildeman, and thanks heaps for your generosity.

From a 750ml into a snifter
Barrel Aged Reserve Series
ABV: 9.3% IBUS: 83
Brown bottle and black label

APPEARANCE: A transparent, dark brown pour produces a big, three finger, medium looking, fluffy, tan head with great retention. Sienna brown, almost black body with loads and loads of carbonation all over the place. Head eventually fades to a thick, ½ finger foam cap leaving sheets of foamy lacing down the glass. Carbonation eventually settles down but a full cap remains until the end and leaves sheets of lacing the whole way down the glass. The stout is too light and transparent and the carbonation is out of control, but it eventually calms and the lacing looks great.

SMELL: Mild nose of roasted malts, cocoa powder and some light whisky notes. A touch of oak and vanilla, but this is all quite mild. Not much base beer there, and not much barrel for that matter. Pretty lackluster.

TASTE: Mostly barrel and booze up front. Roasted malts, toffee, cocoa powder and some dark fruits with hints of whisky and oak notes at the swallow. Lots of booze in the finish, relatively speaking. A mild but lingering aftertaste of whisky, oak, and a touch of cocoa as well. This is very mild in flavor, but what is there is mostly dominated by the alcohol. This is relatively flat and bland.

PALATE: Medium body and higher levels of carbonation. Light on the palate, but smooth and creamy enough, goes down fine and finishes slightly mouth-coating with some lingering heat on the palate. Too much carbonation and a little light for the style.

OVERALL: Definitely a let down. The bottle looks pretty cool, but that’s about it. What I could detect from the base beer was less than impressive, what with the mild and flat flavor profile, and the barrel aging really failed to save this one in any way. It’s also overcarbonated, which lead to an out-of-control look and a light feel on the palate. Not one I’d recommend going after. Regardless, I really appreciate the chance to give this one a go. Thanks again for the hookup Kkottonmouthkngz! Hopefully we can share some brews together again sometime.

Overall, a dinky beer. Doesn't have enough density or resilient flavor profile when it comes down to it. Tastes like a thin Old Rasputin clone with dry nutty whisky.

Part of the NEPA BC split from back in November. Pours a pretty dark brown, darker in the glass than on the pour but certainly not the "black as night" noted on the label. Head is more bubbly than dense and produces about a finger and a half of foam, which settles to a bubbly, uneven lace without much stick on the sides.

Smell has a pleasing whiskey aroma up front, with notes of vanilla and wood. Behind it is some sweet malt, chocolate and caramel with some roasted notes and a hint of coffee as well. The malt base is pretty light, however, and lacks much depth. It smells thin, which for a barrel aged imperial stout does not seem to portend good things...

Taste is, as the nose predicted it might be, pretty thin. It just lacks the depth of flavor that an imperial stout, barrel aged or not, should deliver. It has some roasted and coffee notes, with a bit of sweetness, but those then wash almost completely away as the whiskey flavor asserts itself. It's not that the whiskey is overpowering, because it's not - it's actually pretty nice - it's just that the stout itself is very weak. The whiskey is pleasant and has some vanilla flavor as well, plus there is a woody quality in the finish. Just a touch of alcohol heat. The whiskey actually saves this from scoring even lower.

Mouthfeel is woefully thin for an imperial stout. It's a medium body, but barely, and lacks a creaminess to make it feel fuller. Carbonation is fine and it's pretty smooth, but I like my impys with more meat on their bones. This just does not cut it.

The whiskey qualities here are pretty nice, aggressive without being overdone, but the stout itself falls flat. It's too thin and lacks much character, making the final product pretty subpar, particularly in a category with so many outstanding beers. The whiskey saves it from being a complete disappointment in fact. Once I finish a sip and the palate is clean, it feels as though I'm drinking a highball of whiskey rather than a beer; that being the case, I'd rather just drink the whiskey.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 1

Deep brown in color slightly light and not black with a small head that leaves good lace.

Wet cardboard in the nose almost like a corked wine. Mildew, chocolate, wood, hints of vanilla, with black fruit esters.

Not a bad beer, easy drinking, light and not overly complex, but a dick load of alcohol on the finish. Some dark fruits in the middle with wood tannins on the finish. Hints of whiskey, wood, vanilla, milk chocolate, and plum.

Mouth is full but yet not thick and big like you'd expect with a beer like this. I normally don't consider price with drinkability but considering this bottle cost me $25bux this may be the most overpriced beer I've ever had, and I'm not one to complain about pricing.

Bottle shared at the December iteration of the Santa Cruz tasting series. Pours dark brown with an ecru froth. Chocolatey aroma, light roastiness, slight booziness. Piney hops atop dark chocolate in the flavor, plus a whole lot of whiskey. Right now I’m not interested in beers that need a hundred years of aging just to become approachable.

Thanks to iasanlee, RandomBattle & beerisheaven for shipping me bottles of this Nebraska brew. The first was consumed around the fire at Lake Itasca, camping, on a cool September night. This one split with my wife after watching Star Wars with the kids for the first time. Then off to bed with them.

Pours black & frizzy. The smell is on the subtle side of the genre, with the bourbon & malts on equal footing on top of the play bill. Perhaps vanilla, roast, & licorice, too.

Enjoying Black Betty around a roaring fire (that took forever to get going) made me taste a lot of smoke. I thought it was coming from the wood - wrong - it was coming from the glass. Smoky malts border on charred are the taste of the day. Bourbon? Really? Vanilla is fleeting, but in a blind test, I'd guess this was more baltic porter than barrel-aged big stout. And more porter-like than anything else in the mouthfeel.

Disappointing, & one-dimensional. Not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but pretty pedestrian, & the lack of barrel taste, coupled with the thin mouthfeel, leave me pretty neutral. Decent enough; this was a 2010 bottle & I enjoyed the 2009 much more that last evening, so this may need some age. But I can't see that helping with the lack of barrel.

The pour is black in color with a small tan head. Smells strongly of roasted malt, licorice, and char. There is definitely some booze/heat to it, too. A little bit of dark chocolate and coffee. The flavor is no more impressive. Intense roast and booze flavor with a bit of molasses and licorice. Maybe some dark chocolate and astringent coffee. Meh.

This one was shared by Mark last night, thanks man!

This one pours a dark black, typical imperial stout look here, with a very small head, and no lacing.

This one smells super hot and whiskey forward.

It also tastes way too hot and whiskey forward. There's a pretty unpleasant heat, with an astringent alcohol bitterness. If you strain, you can taste the base stout, with some decent chocolate and caramel, but the barrel has kinda overwhelmed this one, unfortunately.

This one is way too thin for the style, too, which is disappointing. There's a lower level of carbonation.

Not all that impressed with this one.

750mL bottle poured into tulip glass

Pours totally black with a thin tanned head. Little retention and lacing along the glass.

Plenty of whiskey up front in the nose with molasses, chocolate, and toffee alongside faint hops. Not particularly inviting.

Some dark chocolate sweetness up front with whiskey warmth. More chocolate, toffee, and molasses with caramel malt. Roasted flavor with dark fruit sweetness including raisins and dates. More boozy sweetness towards the end which smacks of plain whiskey.

Fuller medium body, lighter carbonation, lingering heat and stickiness in the feel. Alcohol appears to be heavy and the dark fruit sweetness doesn't appear to mesh completely with the whiskey.

I really wanted to love this beer, but the flavors didn't seem to work for me, and I was missing some of the barrel aging flavors I typically love. Also, there was a bit of astringency (possible tartness) which reminded me of the possible onset of infection, although I'm not ready to go crazy over it yet.

A - Almost black but not solid black, thin tan head with a bunch of sticky spotty lacing.

S - Whiskey and oak and lots of it. Smells more like Jack Daniels than a bourbon barrel. Vanilla, hint of roasted malt but mostly whiskey.

T - Reminds me of a bad idea of making a home made barrel aged stout by putting a shot of Jack Daniels in an Imperial Stout. Whiskey, oak, vanilla with just a touch of stout hidden in the background.

M - Medium body with low carbonation.

D - Not very smooth. Not worth the price even though I found it on sale for $16.

1 pint 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into an Antwerp beer passion weekend in me friend Bo's gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are quite high as I usually love the style - though this is me first beer from this brewery. I was raised in Denver and quie fancy Stranahan's whiskey for what it is.

Allowed to warm after removal from the refrigerator - and considerably moreso thereafter. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

9.0%. I believe I acquired this at Wally's Wine in Westwood California.

A: Pours a 1.5 finger khaki-light tan colour head of very good thickness, good cream, and excellent retention considering the high ABV. Colour is a predictable solid nontransparent opaque black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Decent lacing.

Sm: Coffee, delightful roast, dark malts, whiskey, biscuity yeast, light woods, chocolate, vague complementary floral hops, cream, and light subtle caramelization. A mild strength aroma.

T: Subtle coffee and subtle chocolate over top an unobtrusive dark malt foundation. Hints of warm whiskey (themselves featuring light hints of peat). Not as much roast as I'd like, but some is there - and that's more than I can say about most imperial stouts. It's got body, but isn't as bold and overbearing as most beers in the style. I wouldn't refer to it as complex, but it has a reserved subtlety that I like. Very tasty. Hardly any heat or alcohol at all. The balance is pretty well-executed, but no note is dominant - a feature I find off-putting. The flavour profile lacks direction and focus as a result. You have to commit to a direction; you can't amble around with many of the components of a good imperial stout without choosing which to emphasize.

Mf: Nowhere near as thick as most beers in the style, which is a good thing. Nicely coarse, but nowhere near dry enough. This is wrong for a stout.

Dr: Quite pricey relative to the quality - which is still high but not so much as to justify the expense. Hides its ABV quite well. I look forward to trying more (hopefully more affordable) brews from Nebraska. Quite drinkable in any case.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice thick dark brown foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of bourbon and vanilla is quite powerful with some light coffee notes. Taste is also a slightly unbalanced mix of bourbon with clear vanilla notes with some roasted malt notes and a dry finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation and light warming alcohol notes. Unfortunately this one was not as balanced as I would have hoped for but still very good nonetheless.

A - Dark brown beer that gets a little ruby on the edges. Had a bit of a tan head that left some spots on the sides.

S - A bit of bourbon, barrel, oak, alcohol, bit of vanilla. Slightly harsh, little too much alcohol, but has a couple of nice things going for it.

T - Some wood, more vanilla, bourbon, alcohol. Not particularly smooth, little bit of coffee. It's not bad, has some decent flavors.

M - Medium bodied, lower carbonation.

O - Not a bad beer, could be smoothed out a little bit with a little less barrel focus, but this was alright. Wouldn't mind this one again.

The beer was lightly chilled and served in a snifter.

A- The body of the beer is a nice oily black coloration. No opaqueness is noted when the beer is held to light. A thick burnt nugget colored head towers above the beers body. Nice head retention noted. The beer leaves a trail of major lacing on the glass.

S- The aroma of the beer is darkly roasted and slightly smoked maltyness. Vanilla oaked notes combined with whiskey punch toward the for ground. I am really enjoying this beers aroma.

T- The beers flavor delivers on a layered darkly roasted coffee, cocoa, a nip of raisins and yes it brings a pleasing whiskey barrell flavoring. The flavors of the base beer are big enough to stand up to the barrels flavors.

M- The body of the beer is a weak point. The body is simply too thin for my taste. The body is on the thin side. The carbonation is on the low side. The alcohol is a bit assertive and wouldnt be a problem with a more viscous beer. In short the body reminded me of cough syrup.

O- The mouthfeel was the killer on this beer. A bit more thickness would have lifted the beer up to the next level. Not a drain pour but not really the experience I am looking for in a barrell aged stout.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a pitch black color with a relatively thin beige cap that doesn't hang around for long but leaves a nice swath of lace behind

Smell: The barrel is most prominent in the aroma, leaving a strong whiskey element with vanilla in the background; overwhelms the expected imperial stout aromas

Taste: Rather boozy, up front, with burnt brown sugar and roasted malt flavors joining the whiskey and vanilla; the booziness continues, after the swallow, overwhelming the other elements

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation and considerable warmth; lacks the full-bodied mouthfeel for the style

Overall: This is a decent beer but just doesn't measure up to great examples of the style; in and of itself, that is not necessarily bad but the beer is priced as if it belonged in the top echelon

I see no date on the bottle.

Black Betty is indeed very black. A massive head forms that slowly settles to a thick cap. Heavy lacing is left down the glass. A wonderful looking imperial stout. Aroma is more wet wood than I would of liked. There is whiskey with notes of vanilla, roasted malt, smoke, ash, and alcohol. The barrel also added an unfortunate wood flavor to the beer as well. Just raw wood. This beer is also lacking in the malt flavor. I get a little bit of roasted malt and a hint of smoke in the finish. Notes of whiskey and vanilla. The body is surprisingly thin for a beer of over 11% ABV. This was a disappointment. Just because it is barrel-aged doesn't mean it is automatically a good beer. A waste of money but did have some pleasant qualities.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black color with a slight tan head that coasters. Nice lace on the glass. Roasty malt aroma with a hint of licorice, a little barrel as well but not overpowering in any sense. The taste is malty roasted with some sweetness, earthy, and oaky. Some dark chocolate and vanilla notes as well. There is a bitter taste that is a little off putting but otherwise this is a decent beer. Medium mouthfeel.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours with two dense fingers of khaki, light brown head. The head looked like foam on top of an overpriced coffee concoction. Active carbonation is as bright and active as I've seen in a BA stout, continually regenerating the head.

Smell: bright oak, rye bread, and surprisingly bright fruits. Fruit accents of pears, white grapes, and apricots. Has a chardonnay type fruit profile. Touch of vanilla and caramel mesh on the body, almost too much so, with some slight booze. Fruits and oak are certainly the biggest standout.

Taste: Oak and dark fruits hit first. Vanilla and some toffee opens up on the body. A light touch of roasted malts with a sting of boozy bourbon. The huge carbonation I really feels hides many of the flavors and what flavors come through are slightly undistinguished.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is huge in this one, too much so IMHO.

Overall: This is certainly a unique stout, nothing like any other BA stouts I've had. The bright fruits are welcome but I would use more barrel character and a richer body. Glad I tried it, but wouldn't revisit it in the future.

A: This poured an opaque pitch black with lots of fluffy tan head.
S: It smelled like coffee grinds and oak and cocoa powder, with some raisin and toasted coconut.
T: It tasted like dry mocha and charred oak, with some fresh coconut and earthy dried fruit. It had a earthy bitter aftertaste.
M: It was oily with a little carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was a good brew, but not top tier. The scent and taste weren't that rich, but the body was great. The finish was pretty hot, so it was better to sip. Age might help, fresh is good not great.

Notes from flight tasting

Fairly typical nose bit of a dark beige head. Nose alludes to caraway or actual rye bread in a way that I've never noticed from an Imperial stout. Very thin mouthfeel and rather lacking in the whole presence department as well. I'm glad I didn't spend 9 bucks on a glass. Some fruit sweetness that matches well with the chocolate sweetness but pretty much craps out on the finish.

2011 Vintage
Poured from 750ml bottle into snifter.

Aroma: Fruity fig, toasted oak, vanilla, bourbon, coconut, and dark chocolate syrup.

Appearance: Nice looking 1 finger tan head sticks around for a while, and leaves decent lacing for the style. Pours coffee brown from the bottle, but is dark dark brown to black in the glass. Body appears a little bit thinner than anticipated.

Flavor: Lots of coconut up front, dry, powdery dark chocolate, some molasses, bourbon, and some prominent bitterness lingering at the end.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full mouthfeel is, again, a bit thinner than expected. Medium carbonation serves to kick-up the nice collar. Bourbon provides a bit of warming heat in the mouth and throat.

Overall: For $15, this would have been a decent barrel aged RIS. After determining it was a bit on the hot/bitter side after holding onto it for 6 months, I could buy another one and see how it tastes in a couple of years. At $28 a bottle, though, I can get 2 bottles of RIS that are good now, or that show even greater promise of being remarkable in 2 years than this one. Pardon the pun, but for the price tag, this one leaves me with a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth. If you're curious, and can split a bottle w/ someone, give it a try. Otherwise, my recommendation would be to move on to the plethora of other better RIS's out there.

Reviewed from notes, finally. Thanks to the Chicago crew for sharing this one with me. Pours black into a stone glass with brown hues and a bubbly tan head that sits in the center. Smell is of oak, lots of bourbon, caramel and chocolate malts. Lots of oak and bourbon dominate the flavor, dark malt, roasted coffee, some bitter bakers chocolate, and alcohol taste. The mouthfeel is coating and sweet with a light carbonation. A bit hot but drinkable for a barrel aged stout. This one is a "boozer" as I put in my notes. I would happily drink this again, but I dont think i would go out of my way to get a bottle

Bottle shared with Jwiss22 to stock pile the calories needed for the cold on the eve of the Splinter Black release. Poured into my trusty Weyerbacher cuvee glass, I'm ready to warm myself up...

A- As dark as the night and a very, very pretty shade of deep black. Love the color it's a spot on color for a big stout. It's accompanied with a light brown, one finger head with noticeable bubbles of carb. Hopefully a foreshadowing of good things to come!

S- Tons of sweet dark chocolate, burnt malts and the sweet smell of vanilla letting me know it's whiskey barrel aged. As it warms I am picking up more and more of the whiskey heat melding with the vanilla with some faint oakiness. It's an intoxicating smell and welcomed, but not the best smelling stout I've had.

T- A very nice mixture of vanilla from the barrel and the chocolates from the malt bill. They blend well in the initial taste, but the finish is underwhelming and too whiskey influenced. I like more of the subtle whiskey with more vanilla notes. As this one continues to warm it thins out and is much of the same just some vanilla and oak tastes, whiskey heat and sweet chocolate malt.

M- Not exactly full bodied, but not thin either as I have heard from others. It's a little sticky and coating, but not as chewy as I would have liked for a big stout. The best part is that it is not chalky like some stouts finish so I am pleased with the coating and feeling of this one.

D- Fairly drinkable, but not what I would expect from this one. I would have liked more of a balance between the oak, vanilla and chocolates. It seems to be a little mixed up at different warming stages and kind of gets old. Still fairly enjoyable. Nice job.

Another solid beer from Nebraska I would love to see their availability to be increased in PA in the coming months.
