On tap, pours black with almost no head or lace. More malty than one might expect. Good mouthfeel. Hints of bourbon but if you bought it expecting big bourbon taste you will be disappointed.

On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours deep dark murky brown with a reddish tint and thin creamy mocha head. Aroma is heavy boozy bourbon, dark roasty malt. Taste is big roasty dark chocolate malt, oaky and dry mid-palate, french roast coffee, big syrupy boozy bourbon that lingers through the finish. Lacks the nuance of better barrel-aged stouts, but plenty of big rich flavor to enjoy here.

10oz from beer junction. Pours with a very small head with dark body. Really taste the vanilla and bourbon in this. Bit of figs and cinnamon dark chocolate. Really well rounded beer. Nice!!

From 22oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a nice black, thin tan head. Nose is huge roasted malt, slight hop, dark fruit, smoke, molasses. Taste is mostly bitter with small hints of sweetness, medium-heavy bodied. Finishes extremely clean on the palate, long finish with alcohol flavors. Great beer, very surprised at the drinkability with such a high ABV beer.

Amazing imperial stout. Smooth chocolate and bourbon flavor, not overpowering like a lot of BA beers. Always glad to drink this.

Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Lots of bourbon and chocolate. Jet brown with a light brown head. Sweet burnt sugar, dark chocolate, dry bitterness and a cocoa finish. A bit thin but nice.
