This is another super rich imperial stout. Incredibly thick, black brew with minimal head/carbonation. Smells of bourbon and the wood flavor really comes through more than most RIS. It has this strong coating and chewiness as well. Absolutely spectacular among stiff competition.

great tasting beer. pours thin (which is fine by me) with a rich dark color. smells as it tastes (delicious). no alcohol presence (dangerous for the ABV of 11.50%). I reccommend this to any one that likes a dark yet sweet stout.

It's as delicious and decadent as the name implies. Thick and viscous and chewy. Pours dark as obsidian, very little head. Pricey, but worth the money you spend.

Reviewing this beer because of the new format. This beer was the best beer I've ever had.
Shared a bottle with my brother Jim (I should say he shared a bottle with me.).
The aroma was heavenly, the taste was better (how is that possible?).
Could almost taste a little butter on the Biscotti.
Overall the best I've had.

22oz brown bomber purchased from Ales Unlimited in San Francisco, CA. Brought back to Australia where I cracked it open on a brewday with Sam and Chris.

Pours a lovely sinewy black, with a deep brown head of slightly frothy foam that settles out into a firm ring. Some patchy lace, but that's not what you're looking at in a beer this heavy. Body is thick and silky. Carbonation is powdery. Looks the business.

Nose is wonderful. All of the bleeding-edge oak-aged vanilla and bourbon characters you would expect, laced with a foundation of extreme sweetness and twists of tomato and cinnamon. It's really excellent. There is something of the sweet biscotti to it as well, possibly entirely suggested by the name—but the naming is genius either way. I either taste it because of the name, or the name brilliantly describes the characteristics. I don't care which, I still love it.

Taste is also really excellent. Sublime even. Smooth entry leaves silky vanilla and sweetness through the centre of the palate, with leavened, slightly bulbous tones of vanilla custard and butter biscuits. Roast is bittersweet, and always coated with those lovely bourbon vanilla characters, but it leaves a fragrant, slightly aromatic bitterness towards the back. Mostly, though, it's just sweet, luscious, vanilla-potent and gorgeous. A truly phenomenal oak-aged stout.

Feel is perfect. Smooth, glossy, rich and beautifully full. It accentuates the flavours and deepens their development.

Yep—no kidding, this is a truly phenomenal beer. This is beer at its highest peak. The richness, the smoothness, the complexity—they make this beer into something absolutely sublime. Truly, one of the best beers I've ever tasted.

Vintage 2015 was able to share this bottle with my friend on his 30th birthday recently and it was amazing! Wonderful bourbon and caramel nose and then once you taste it...even better!!!! Slight roast, lots of caramel sweetness but well balanced with a solid bourbon finish!

I was thrilled to see this at my bottle shop. I had no idea this was coming around.

A. Poured dark black. A finger light amber head that slowly retreats to a uber thick fine bubble film. Very silky and stable film. Moderate viscosity. Excellent lacing.

S. A mild fragrance of bourbon soaked oak, dark roasted malts, vanilla, biscotti (power of persuasion), and semi-sweet chocolate.

T. Follows the nose nicely on a ridge of sweet and bitter. A balance of chocolate and bourbon. Actually a lot of minor notes: vanilla, toffee, tannins, cookies, marshmallows, roasted hazelnuts, and spices. The mellow hops come through in the end.

M. Moderate viscosity and carbonation. Full bodied. Uber smooth.

O. I love ba stouts and this is at the top of my list. Super balanced. It has all the flavors of a ba stout that tastes like a biscotti but in no way overly sweet. This is surprisingly not sweet. I'm a fan. This is a must try.

Very small one-finger snappy mud brown bubbly head comes from the super thick black as tar liquid. Nice legs. No lacing.

Crap tons of caramel and vanilla. Lots of barrel. Coco nibs galore.

An overwhelming amount of healthy whiskey, just fantastic. Super dark dry roasted chocolate without burring the coffee flavors totally. Zero off-putting flavors; ie. anise. The whiskey flavors are some of the most amazing i've ever pulled out of a beer without artificially enhancing a beer... Carbonation is very low, prickly, and much appreciated. Zero over done sweetness, calm and relaxed bitter bite. Chewy, well blended, complex, smooth, sippin' beer.

Hands-down one of the most overwhelming beers I've ever had. A smoking-hot delicious take on the regular IBB... Give me this beer over and over again. I Could drink this for the rest of my life. DISCLAIMER: If you don't like boozy hot beers, then trade yours to me!!!

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- Black with a two finger mocha head.

S-Bourbon/vanilla, oak, coffee, sweet milk chocolate/chocolate chip cookies, just as big and complex regular IBB.

T- Wow, this is great! Bourbon, slightly boozy/hot, oak, roasted coffee that adds a nice bitterness to the finish, creamy milk chocolate, vanilla.

M- Thick, fairly creamy, big.

O- Great beer, barrel adds a great flavor but doesn't overwhelm the base beer. Just like regular IBB I really enjoy this beer and will be picking this up every time I get a chance.

Edit: As I am finishing this up I am getting more bourbon, Evil Twin knocked it out of the park.

Love the normal IBB, and this is an improvement. Notes of bourbon, vanilla, even a hint of coconut on the finish. Beautiful mouthfeel like normal IBB. World class brew - Cheers

Pours pitch black, like black hole black color, with a small foamy brown head that was full of tiny bubbles and faded on the quick side leaving a layer around the ring of the glass as it hissed away and dissipated. Lacing was decent, sliding down slowly after each sip. Kind of what I expected from a barrel aged imperial stout.

Smells of molasses, brown sugar, espresso, dark chocolate, burnt wood, cocoa powder, mocha, coffee beans, roasted malt/grains, Whopper's candy, oaky notes, red wine, vanilla and bourbon. The bourbon aging and addition basically negates some of the cookie sweetness, but pulls in maple syrup, toffee, light piney hops, peat moss, more vanilla like vanilla beans, and booze which seems more sweet than smoky. The alcohol is very light and just part of the complex malty nose which was equally as impressive and enjoyable as the base Imperial Biscotti Break nose from the addition of the bourbon accents.

Flavor picks up right where the aroma left off, with the bourbon jumping out with some minor heat that quickly settles down and let's the rest of the malt base show off. Tastes like it smells, with cocoa powder, espresso, dark chocolate, burnt wood, burnt coffee grinds, molasses, brown sugar, burnt grains, Whopper's candy and real sweet vanilla which seem's like a fresh, crisp Chips Ahoy! cookie. The additions of the vanilla, oak/barrel notes, bourbon and general merlot-like sweetness only make the base beer better for me, as the alcohol provides a little heat and kick as it releases maple syrup, roasted nuts, bread crust, white chocolate and then some dark fruit like raisin, plum or dates. Piney hops, peppery spices, tea leaf and other earthy notes surface at the end to add balance and bring out more rich espresso and cookie dough elements. Smoked grains peek through with more dark chocolate as it warms up, but the bourbon accents made it a different and in some ways better beer that was also like a dessert with the biscotti-like aftertaste. Main difference between this and the base beer is that this is like washing down that delicious biscotti with a glass of bourbon, so you now get the best of both worlds.

Mouthfeel is velvety smooth across the tongue considering this is a dense, chewy beer that is thick and heavy in every way possible. It's meaty and just like a meal in a bottle. The aftertaste is lightly bitter, and the booze is present yet pleasant throughout as it manages to make the 11.5% ABV part of the experience to warm you up rather then take your breath away like a shout of bourbon. A masterful balancing act and dance of all the flavors to make this brew this smooth at this stage of the maturity. I don't think this bottle is that old, so the booze would have mellowed if I aged it but it was near perfection at this stage and I loved it. This is up there with all the Bourbon County Brand Stouts, KBS and all the big boys.

As I said with the base beer, it had everything I look for in an imperial stout and it came through with each sip. Add in the bourbon barrel aging and again Jeppe deserves thanks for creating another masterpiece. I highly recommend this beer; even though it is very expensive, to me it was worth the price.

Most I've ever spent on a bottle but so worth- pours a jet black into my tulip with less than a finger of mocha colored head, little retention or lacing.

Smell is delicious-smells like breakfast or desert I can't decide which. Maple, coffee, roasted malt, caramel. Lots of stuff going on but well blended and intoxicating.

Tastes ridiculously good- same stuff going on as the nose, a little more vanilla and a hint of bourbon. I wouldn't call it boozy but you know you're not drinking Guinness. Rich, complex, masterfully balanced. Perfect.

Mouthfeel is smooth rich full-bodied, slightly carbonated. This is a fucking amazing beer- so glad I got the last bottle at whole foods. This is not a balls to the wall huge dark beastly imperial stout. This is a cultured, refined, royal imperial stout. BAs- buy it if you can!

Pours a nice bold black.
Smells of roasted notes with a hint of vanilla and sweetness.
The beer is full bodied, creamy and coats the palette.
The roastiness comes through up front followed by sweetness and vanilla flavors.
No heat or burn on the finishes, just smoothness.

22 oz. bottle stored in cellar at 45 degrees , poured into a Teku glass. Pours a beautiful, velvety jet black. A two finger mocha colored head quickly forms, then after a brief moment it slowly starts to sink into the darkness of the beer below it. Ultimately the creamy head disappears in its entirety, save for an elegant ring that forms around the glass. A beautiful beer.

From the moment the bottle was opened, a fiery explosion of vanilla and wild cherries made its way to my nose. It was closely followed by the warming aroma of bourbon and a sweet companion to it that reminds me of maple syrup. Worthy to note – I have not smelled the glass yet – this beer’s scent is so penetrating and far reaching that I’m picking these aromas out having the glass roughly a feet away . Upon smelling the beer in the glass milk chocolate and coffee ice cream flavors surface, making the vanilla and cherries even more appealing. Bourbon is still detected, as is maple syrup but these were not nearly as dominant as I expected them to be. A notably absent aroma is oak/wood. After the first few sips I can say that the taste is so well balanced and the alcohol is so well hidden that it’s almost unbelievable. A chocolaty and warming sensation is the first impression you get after tasting it, soon thereafter a soft and inviting vanilla flavor mixed with cherries takes over, ultimately leading you to a dessert like finish with characteristics of coconut, latte and maple syrup. A blend of spices can be felt in your palate – I would say nutmeg is definitely present.

Mouthfeel is as great as it gets – its rich, velvety and creamy allowing you to almost chew the flavors out of this beer. Almost no carbonation, as expected.

Overall: Every sip is an experience – this beer is phenomenal. The only drawback (and hence my lower overall score) is its price. At $25.99 a bottle – this is a beer to be had in very special occasions if at all. I do consider it unique enough and worthy of its value (no regrets!) – however, I do consider other BBA to be worthy competitors at much lower price points (Parabola, BBPt5, BCBS). Bottom line - wow. Both on your palate and your wallet.

This was a fantastic beer. Best enjoyed as a dessert beer after a fine dinner. The hazelnut flavor rings through and walks hand-in-hand with the coffee flavors. Light hints of chocolate in the after taste remind me of nutella. The feel is perfect, it is smooth like a creamy cappuccino. This beer is perfect for rapping up a fine evening.

22oz bottle with no visible freshness date poured into a Rastal Teku 2.0 stemmed glass (about 14oz decanted on first pour). I know this is relatively fresh since it showed up at my local liquor store about one week ago.

A- Although technically an Imperial Porter, the appearance is as menacing as the boldest Imperial Stout...thick, viscous, used motor-oil black with 1/2-finger worth of a mocha head with no retention. (4.75)*

S- The aroma is crazy and really embraces everything you smell when opening a tin of chocolate-dipped biscotti foodstuffs. Almond, Hazelnut, Vanilla, Chocolate, (slight) bourbon and alcohol are all represented. (5.0)

T- Milk Chocolate/Nutty/Vanilla sweetness consumes the palate with the same flavors as detected in the nose. These must have been wet barrels because sweet Bourbon is the next flavor to come to the fore. An oily, Dark Chocolate-covered Espresso Bean bitter finish leaves the palate dry and more than keeps the sweetness in check. The alcohol warmth rises well after the sip. The heat from the bourbon (and what I guess to be some almond and hazelnut extracts) might be distracting for some, but it just adds to the 'extreme' nature of this beer. As it elevates to room temperature, the bourbon barrel comes out in spades...outrageous! (5.0)

M- This is a creamy, silky, full bodied and palate coating libation with spot-on carbonation. The flavor and alcohol warmth lingers which demands slow consumption and contemplation. (5.0)

O- With regards to the initial pour, IBB-BBA is one of the most unique beers I have ever experienced and squarely deserves recognition alongside with other BBA beers in the same class (BCBS, KBS, Backwoods Bastard, BBA Plead The 5th, BBA Narwhal, etc.)...they really nail the "Liquid Biscotti" character. Although I have never had the non-BBA version, the bourbon barrel character is definitely present and amplifies the intensity.

*Unfortunately, the second pour was not as remarkable as the first as it seemed to lose that 'Liquid Biscotti' character and resembled more of a non-adjunct, BBA Imperial Stout. Couple that with the hefty price point (I've seen sell for upwards of $25/bottle), it makes it hard to justify the cost. However, if you have an excuse to celebrate with beer and a couple of extra dollars, this is one is worthy. (4.75)

Drank from a 1 pt. 6 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Harvest Wines & Spirits, West Hartford, CT
Served in a snifter

The beer poured a dark brown/black. Thick but not super viscous. A dense, creamy, saddle brown crown topped the liquid and quickly dissolved to a lasting collar. Spotty streaks of lacing trickled down the glass.

The aroma was outstanding. Rich, chocolate fudge-like notes leapt from the glass. Tons of fresh vanilla bean. Sweet and rich with indications of brown sugar. Loads of freshly brewed coffee and and bourbon came through as well. Strong dark fruit notes. Raisins and plums were most apparent. As the beer warmed, the vanilla notes really took over. Amazingly sweet and fragrant.
All in all, phenomenal.

The flavor profile was nearly as intense as the aroma. Roasted and caramel malts appeared on the front end. There was a rich, brown sugar-like sweetness as well. Tons of vanilla. Lots of dark roast coffee, dark fruits and powdered cocoa. Again, rich raisiny notes came through strong. Good amount of bourbon - just enough to keep from overwhelming all the other subtle flavors in the beer. The finish was roasty, oaky, and somewhat tannic and contained a welcomed amount of alcohol heat. With time, the beer became substantially boozier.

The beer was full bodied on the palate. Super creamy, frothy and slick. Almost oily. The liquid contained a fine, tongue blanketing effervescence.

I remember trying the original Imperial Biscotti Break last year and not being too impressed with it. Even though the bourbon barrel aging only played a moderate role in this beer, it seemed to contribute a lot of complexity and ton of vanilla notes. Despite the significantly higher price tag (I paid $25 for my bottle), this beer was well worth it.

From my tasting notes:

Color- Motor Oil Black

Head- Roughly 1.5 Fingers of espresso colored foam with rapid thinning

Aroma- Sweet Malt, Milk Chocolate, Caramel, Butter Scotch, with a faint Booze Backbone

Body- Full, Thick, Slick, Creamy, Goes down rather smoothly

Taste- Quite Similar to the Aroma.

Overall- The best BBA Imperial Stout I've enjoyed to date. As a comparison I personally rate this slightly higher than GI BCB Coffee Stout. I feel this beer blends the added element of Bourbon Booze a hint better than any other BBA offering out there. Definitely worth the $26 at the local bottle shop. Will eagerly seek out again next year if released.

22oz bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Athens, GA). No bottling date. Served in a Bruery snifter.

Pours jet black with a deep tan quarter finger head. After a brief moment only a thin halo remains, leaving very little lace.

Roasty, sweet, inviting aromas of chocolate, vanilla, almonds, bourbon and mild coffee. Quite nice.

The taste has all of that Imperial Biscotti Break goodness but taken up a notch. Mild yet flavorful bourbon, creamed coffee, amaretto, rich chocolate, oaky vanilla, nutty, caramel, roasted grains and some alcohol. Good and sweet with a roasty coffee bitterness than keeps it in check. Really opens up nicely as it gets a bit warmer. Outstanding.

Creamy, viscous and moderately heavy body with soft carbonation. Bourbony vanilla, mochacino and caramel linger on the tongue in the delicious aftertaste.

This is the total package- earning/ delivering high marks in every catagory. The bourbon really elevates the base beer- and that's really saying something based on how good Imperial Biscotti Break already is. The barrel treatment adds a delicious bourbon glaze to the solid foundation of chocolate, coffee and amaretto. A hunt-worthy gem that, for me, more than lived up to that pesky thing we call hype.

The beer comes in a jet black color with a wonderful dark coffee head.

The aroma offers chunky chocolate, lots of sweetness and vanilla, dark caramel. A touch of umami and sweet bourbon character.

The beer hits first of lots of bourbon character that takes over the sides of the palate. Lots of chunky sweet chocolate, almost like big chocolate chips. A bit of roasted coffee. Lots of vanilla on the finish along with some amaretto liqueur.

A sweet dessert bourbon barrel aged stout that in the end tastes like a liqueur chocolate cake.

Many thank yous to mendvicdog for the share. Dark brown, near black body with an inch or so of foamy, dark beige cap. Lush aroma of roast and chocolate, oak and bourbon. A touch of vanilla. Incredible balance and simply beautiful flavors. A memorable beer. I would love to have this one again sometime.

Wonderful Thanksgiving beer to enjoy during the annual stuffing of my face.

Jet black in appearance, mocha tan head. Roasted, chocolatey goodness oozing out of this bad boy. Big fan of the Regular Imperial Biscotti and this adds a welcomed amount of booziness from the barrels used. Not overly sweet for a relatively high ABV roasted malt backbone type of brew. Definitely worth seeking out, one to enjoy now and one to enjoy later.

22oz. bottle into a Founders snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a dense pitch black. 2 finger dark, thick mocha colored head with great retention. Lacing is thick and layered with excellent stick. Huge, oily legs too. Quite the looker.

Nose is chocolate, cocoa, fudge, brownie, vanilla, molasses and booze. A slight hazelnut sweetness too. Deep and robust. Outstanding.

Opens chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa powder, fudge and brownie. Molasses, hazelnut and a hint of booze and leather in the middle. Ends more molasses and fudge with a sweet, syrupy aftertaste. Huge sweetness with a booze presence that lingers smoothly in the background. Awesome!

Full bodied with low carbonation. Slick, chewy, and oily in the mouth and warm and hot going down. Messy finish with a lingering, filmy aftertaste. Fantastic and hides the ABVs very well.

This is the one variant of Imperial Biscotti Break that I can confidently say is better than the original. An almost perfect beer. Definitely worth the price and well worth seeking out.

With the perfection in succulence, decadence, sultry and smoothness of the standard Imperial Biscotti Break, here comes and even more elevated stout to rival the top spots on all the message boards. Simply put, they but more awesomeness into the Bourbon Barrel Aged version!

Opening with even darker hues, this barrel-infused stout is mocha and chocolate even to the eye. The dark ale allows for a patient rise of latte-tan foam to cap the beer confidently and with stubborn retention. The ale trails with a coat of lace, giving an unmistakable milkshake appearance.

Succulent aromas are a balanced medley of chocolate, coffee and sweet bourbon. If not for the bourbon, the beer's scent is straigh-up of coffeehouses. Bold sweetness of burnt caramel, roasted barley, toasted hazelnuts, vanilla and oak all swirl to captivate the olfactory senses.

Decadent cream flavors are dense and full. But its the taste of mocha and bourbon that leads the way. The blend of espresso, bittersweet chocolate and sweet bourbon play out from the initial sip 'til its long and savory finish. All the while, this lavish stout picks up even more wood caramelization, brown sugar, oak spice and vanilla sweetness early on the tongue, then provides a heavy whipping cream and bourbon-soaked middle palate before turning to burnt toast, brownie, fudge and smooth coffee bitterness to finish.

Like silk on the palate, the beer invades every nook and cranny of the mouth with a dense sheet of velvety sweetness. Bourbon warmth eases the dense texture as the dry roasted malt ushers in a malty-dry culmination in its deep aftertaste.

Its a sublime stout that nearly wins the battle with each and every flavor that's common to the style. But without actually taking that award, its balance and high level of perfection is highly acclaimed. To expect Stout to somehow be better is simply unreasonable.

Split with the lady on her B-day.

A- Black, with a thin cream mocha head that dissipates quickly. Active bubbles.

S- Chocolate brownie batter with bourbon and vanilla. Some leather and toffee.

T- Fudge brownies and bourbon. It's amazing.

M- Chewy and thick. So good. Leaves a nice chocolate flavor in the mouth. No sign of the ABV.

O- A world class beer. Westbrook and Evil Twin are amazing at what they do. This is comparable to the BA Mexican Cakes
