Refrigerated brown bomber poured in a sample glass. Pours black with dark brown hightlights. Little lacing, medium/thick body. Taste is good bourbon, vanilla, and roasty. A little too much bourbon for me, but still good.

MotherBrother (653) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2013
Pour very dark brown, with a thin reddish hue, and a small dense tan head. Aroma has plenty of barrel and wood. Really delicious bourbon notes. Cocoa nibs, vanilla, chocolate, roasted coffee and slight leather. Bourbon here and bourbon there. Really is delicious. The taste is slightly sweet, with a faint roasty bitterness to it. Semi-full bodied, with an average carb. A huge thanks to Ryan for sending me this bad boii..

Pours dark brown. Looks a bit murky but it could just be the color. Light beige head. Small bubbles. Dissipating head. Lots of brown sugar, roast and chocolate in the nose. Well blended bourbon character. Lots more good barrel character in the taste. Starts sweet but dries out well as the wood comes in. Solid roast and chocolate flavors. Smooth mouthfeel. Very good beer.

Fourteen and Fifteen tried side by side, thanks to a generous local beer pal- thanks again, Chris! Both pour a deep, cloudy brown with amber highlights; The Fifteen displays more of a head. Both have a little dustiness/mustiness in the aroma on top of sweet and roasty malts, caramel, bourbon, coconut, marshmallow, vanilla, and oak. The flavor has notes of caramel, bourbon, nuts, vanilla, roast, oak, and coconut. The Fifteen is lighter in body and drier on the palate; both have modest carbonation. Good barrel imperial stout. 15: 9 4 8 3 16; 14: 8 4 8 4 16.

Last time I tried this it was a bourbon bomb. Glad to see it's aged well, developing more roasty qualities over the months. Still suffers from Central Waters Syndrome (aka lack of body). Tasty.

What a surprisingly great BA Imp stout. This pours ink black with nice brown head. Aroma is huge vanilla bourbon, chocolate and ash. Taste is amazingly toasty smooth and rich with great flavors. Awesome.

22oz bottle, split with ablackshear. Pours a jet black color with a thin tan head. Aroma roasty, chocolate, bourbon. Medium to heavy on the palate with light, sharp carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, roasty, chocolate, oak, vanilla, bourbon, coffee. Very complex. Very tasty. Well deserving of its medal at GABF.

Pours a jet black with a nice brown head. Nose and taste is of faded bourbon, leather, tobacco, coffee, and chocolate. A good beer, but not a game changer.
