Patience. Justified.
A full-bodied, Single Barrel Bourbon-aged Imperial Stout with rich aromas of espresso and dark chocolate, and smooth roasted malt flavor. Aged for 6 months inside charred Kentucky white oak bourbon barrels to add the natural vanilla and caramelized sugar flavors of the bourbon soaked wood to the beer. Each bottle run is drawn from a single barrel, making each batch a unique drinking experience. ABV from 10.5% to 11.5%.

on Tap @ Duclaw. Extremely dark brown but not totally black. Small amount of head with little to no lacing. The nose hinted that this was going to be a bourbon bomb. Not to say that the bourbon wasn’t noticable and the 10.5% was not hiding anywhere, it was not bad. Lots of chocolate and coffee undertones but lots of astringent alcohol sweetness as well. Was also a bit syrupy in the mouthfeel dept. A good BA Stout. Just needs a bit of refinement.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with almost no head to it whatsoever. Nose is heavily laden with bourbon, and little else - it overwhelms the beer. Taste has some chocolate in there as well as roasting, but is also dominated by the oaky bourbon flavors. Good brew...
