Pours a jet black color with a short lived dark tan head. The aroma was a nice sweet milk chocolate with notes of coffee, roasted barley, wood chips. The flavor was rather light chocolate with coffee note to it. It had a medium body the kinda killed the the flavor but the finish was smooth. Overall it was okay.

Hey, this is a little more civilized than an imperial stout fer sure. LAcks any volatile aromas. At first it is very laid back. Easy going. Little co2. does have some of that whisky thing going on, but not in yer face, good touch, well done. Some burning going down the troat and a warming sensation in the gullet. Yes, pleasantly surprized

Poured into tulip from 22oz bottle. Aroma was dark fruits, raisins and dates, a little plum. Taste was roasted malts, earthy, dark fruits and a little chocolate. The Wild Turkey came on in the finish and was the aftertaste. Most of these barrel beers I taste seem to have a bit of the whiskey flavor but the finish of this one was pure whiskey. I loved this one, and I think it was my favorite bourbon beer yet.
