3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black with a thin, mocha head that becomes a thin ring. This beer had a TON of chunky, orange and white sediment. Nose is all bourbon but it’s not overpowering. a very faint presence of roasted malt and caramel. The mouth is surprisingly roasty with a lot of coffee and chocolate. The bourbon is present, but its very weak. A slight alcohol burn is present. Definitely not the best bourbon barrel stout that’s out there. The sediment was a little much.

On tap at Bierkraft 3/19/14. Pours jet black with a small tan head. Aroma is amazing, bourbon, fresh baked cookies, vanilla, chocolate. Taste is creamy chocolate, bourbon, toffee, buttery, cookies again. Mouthfeel is creamy and buttery. Absolutely amazing. One of the best beers I've ever had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drought. Dark brown with light chocolate colored spongy head, sharp whisky aroma, coffee-bourbon taste, bitterish long finish with a bit too heavy bourbon aftertaste. Nice but a wee bit too heavy on whisky.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks to Alan, 03/13/2014. Pours dark brown, nearly black, light tan head fades relatively quickly to a few wisps on the surface, small ring of lacing left over. Aroma of chocolate, medium roast, touch of dark fruit melding with sweet bourbon notes, fairly prominent coconut component. Taste is bitter dark roast and chocolate, some coffee, bit ashy, offset by fruity overtones, with vanilla cola and bourbon. Medium body, on the thin side for the style. Decent.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, oak, vanilla, chocolate and light coffee, and a little dough. Flavor a very nice balance of everything. Smooth, thicker texture. A good BA imperial stout.
