Look: Black with a very slight tan head.

Smell: Bourbon and more of it!

Taste: Tastes a lot like cake and it goes down into my taste buds with joy!

Feeling: A soft burn to it for such a high amount of alcohol in it.

Overall: Decent, not my favorite.

Looks like chocolate fudge with a thick khaki head
Smells like fudge and coconut with a hint of bourbon and carmel
Tastes like a big fudgy piece of German cake
This beer lasts forever in your mouth... absolutely amazing

Thick oily black color. Oily layer tops this beer.

Rich, chocolate cake, fudge, and coconut all surrounded by great bourbon, oak, and vanilla flavors. Full bodied with a silky mouthfeel. Basically everything you could ask for in a pastry stout.

Bottle shared by Ryan. Thank you!

Oily, viscous brown body with nary a head. Aromas of brown sugar, bourbon, toffee, chocolate, oak. Incredible flavor, finishing with a delicate and delectable sweetness. Each sip brings a long lingering aftertaste. Silky smooth palate. Wonderfully complex. Outstanding.

Thanks to Heisenbrew for this 750ML bottle, which I am taking solo tonight. If you don’t hear from me by Sunday night, please send someone out to check my dead body’s blood sugar level.

Ever go blind? That’s how dark the beer is, with nearly no visible carbonation. The nose is barrel aged brownie whipped up with bitter cocoa. I’d eat that.

Imperial German Chocolate Cupcake – Barrel Aged was easily my favorite beer from Tampa Beer Week 2018, & the bottle doesn’t quite live up to my glowing memories. It is, of course, sweet enough that my vulnerability to type 2 diabetes just ticked upwards 5%. Straight corn syrup mixes with cane sugar & supremely bitter chocolate to form the base: the chocolate actually took a half hour to warm before the nasty edge wore off the bitter cocoa. Below the sweet upper crust is a healthy helping of bourbon, milky chocolate, long pull of vanilla, & cake batter. I don’t believe I typed that. Thick, full, coma-inducing. Pretty sure I’m not going to have any trouble finishing this off by myself. That said, I’m getting full.

Not as mid-blowing as fresh off the tap, but still an excellent beer…if you have a high tolerance for all things sugar.

This beer is frigging superb; chocolate, vanilla, lactose, bourbon up front; creamy, luscious mouthfeel, mallow, bourbon body; goes on and on.

750 mL bottle. Black body. Smells very sweet. Chocolate. Coconut. I don’t get much, if any, barrel. Tastes very sweet. I do get some whiskey here. Vanilla. Sweet chocolate. Coconut behind it. Sugary finish. Heavy and incredibly sweet. I must say, this is worth the sugar.

Pastry stout delight! Poured very dark with a mocha head into a Torst glass. Expected this to be more like motor oil but it wasn’t. Aromas of fudge and subtle coconut release from the glass. Smells like dessert! Flavors are insane. Pretty sweet with fudge brownies, coconut and subtle Barrel/oak. Amazing flavors here. Like I’m sipping on brownie batter. Feel is viscous and mouth coating. Pretty sticky. Overall, this was a treat. Dessert in every way!
