Bottle 607 or 1152.
Pours a deep black with a rich creamy brown head. Aroma is bourbon, wood, roasted barley, molasses, fruits. Flavor is fruits, bourbon, barrel, roast, chocolate. Sticky brown lacing galore clings to the side of my snifter. Nice creamy slick mouthfeel and very well balanced. Fantastic Imperial Stout, wish I had bought more of this while it was around.

750ml via trade, I believe with tytoanderson. 70th rating of this brew, another impy and another Big Sky Beer. Shared with dalekliz. Beautifal pour, black with a 2 finger head. Nose is sweet with a big punch of bourbon, nice nose, big sky, nice nose indeed. Taste is sweet and slightly bourbonny with a nice choco feeling. I gotta say I like this a lot, more than I expected. Quite good, and dalekliz likes it too.

750ml bottle from a recent trade (98 of 1152)....pours very close to black with barely brown edges and a nice fluggy light brown head.... really assertive aromas of coconut, vanilla, toffee, and bourbon. pretty nice actually.... flavors are nicely melded with chocolate, sweet vanilla, and lighty woody. lively carbonation and light body, wish it had more actually. really nice flavors.

Best of the night at our April ’09 tasting. Pours viscous deep brown with a pillowy dark tan head. Nose is rich with chocolate, vanilla, coconut and coffee. The flavor is all of that well blended with a smooth creamy mouthfeel.
