Cask @ Blind Tiger. Pours jet black with a large brown head. Aroma is malt, chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, and a little coffee/vanilla, followed by an explosion of the bourbon/oak flavors at the end. It’s sublimely smooth and easily drinkable for what it is. Bravo.....bravo.

Cask @ BTAH VSK. Pours opaque black with a light, big bubbled tan head. Nose is huge on the bourbon, with an underlying sweet cocoa note, just a bit of roastiness gets through. Taste rich roasted malt up front, vanilla and oak, with the roastiness reigning in the richness with just a bit of roasty acidity. Dries up towards finish, with lingering bourbon on exhale. Smooth, full, silky mouthfeel, with carbonation just lively enough to really keep the beer alive on your tongue. Superb.

On tap @ Hamilton’s Tavern. Seriously, one of the top 10 beers I’ve ever had. Pours a deep brown almost black with a big tan head. Tons of bourbon, chocolate and toffee on the nose. Flavor held bourbon with some coffee and chocolate.

On cask at Fourth Avenue Pub. Black with typical big bubble cask brown head. Rich aroma of chocolate roasted coffee earth wood. Rich roasted chocolate coffee woodsy earthy licorice flavors with medium hop bitterness. Smooth excellent cask mouthfeel. Full body and low carbo. Rich, complex, and delicious. Excellent.

On tap at Hamiltons. Black with a fizzy tan head. Great chocolate and bourbon aroma and taste with a whiskey and coffee, semi-dry, and alcoholic finish. Yum!

Sampled at GABF ’08. I love their double stout, it’s wayyy underrated...and this just added another great nuance to an already beautiful beer.

Sampled at the 2008 Great American Beer Festival. I was stoked to see this beer on tap. Pitch black with some faint beige lace. Robust roast aroma with a smooth bourbon vanilla undertone. Very mellow character that slides easily across the palate. Oak wood is noticeable in the finish. Very nice.

I got to try 3 BA imperial stouts today. GF, CBC, and BA Yeti. They are all different and good in their own way. The GF was mellowed, black. Thick tan head. Some buttery oak smell. Very nice super easy to drink. My highest rated of the three.
