4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma- marshmallow, coffee beans, milk chocolate, bourbon, oak, molasses
Appearance- pitch black, thin white head
Taste- soft, velvety bourbon burn upfront, followed by some chocolate, roasted notes, caramel, more bourbon, roasted notes and an insanely smooth finish blending all of the components together
Palate- not as thick as I normally like but the mouthfeel on this thing is unreal, smooth and coating without being cloyingly thick
Overall- A perfectly blended BA imperial stout. Everything is there making this one of the best beers I’ve ever had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has been calling my name since I got it. Shared with Matt & Krissi tonight.
The beer has very little head. The color is dark brown. The head is oily and does stay around for a while.
The aroma brings a lot of oak, followed by bourbon. Lots of wood (that’s what she said!). Straightforward in the aroma, which is dominated by barrel character.
Again, lots of barrel flavor, which I love. Silky smooth on the palate. Low carbonation. Perhaps too low. Some more carbonation would be beneficial. I still thought this was a delicious beer. A bit tannic with a mild sharpness in the back. Overall, really good. A departure from the norm. Well done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured black color with a moderate frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate, wood, dark sweet and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy wood and sweet malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Bottle, 22oz. It’s a dark brown beer, topped by a beige head of moderate size. Some bourbon and vanilla in the aroma, but mostly chocolate and roasted malts. Some licorice and alcohol. Quite sweetish on the palate, full-bodied and soft on the palate. Some alcohol warmth. Vanilla, bourbon, chocolate and roasted malts. Some bitterness in the finish. A very tasteful and easy drinkable beer. A tasteful one indeed. 121109
