Silva Stout took a lot of patience. We aged our Double Stout in oak bourbon barrels for seventeen months. Flavors are very complex. It starts off with dark chocolate truffles rolled in cocoa powder. Next is the vanilla and wood notes, with rich cherry-like fruitiness. After racking and filtering the ale, we blended in just the right amount of freshly brewed Double Stout to provide the perfect balance of bourbon barrel aging and freshness. Enjoy the culmination of years of flavor development now – no further aging required!

Pours black with a brown head. Smells primarily of bourbon and chocolate, some wood and malt in there. Taste is bourbon forward with som sweet chocolate and some oak. This beer is heavy and awesome and has definitely aged nicely. A little more balanced now than at the release. Another solid release from Green Flash!

Moderate to heavy toasted semi sweet chocolate, wood and bourbon aroma. Medium to heavy sweet malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Bottle thanks to Snojerk321. Thanks! Nose is nice, bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, some tobacco, chocolate. Bourbon does not overwhelm. Pours black with a tan head, nice and viscous. The flavor is balanced and harmonious. Bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, dark chocolate, tobacco. All flavors work very well together. Not hot, bourbon flavor is pleasant. Smooth creamy body, medium carbonation. A really nice BA Impy Sout.

Draft, sampled at the BA/Sour Sunday event at Triple Rock during SF Beer Week. Pours a dark, cola-brown color; fine-bubbled, creamy, medium-brown head with great retention and lacing. Basic, heavily roasted malts and dark chocolate in the aroma; heavily roasted, but a touch hollow. Medium to medium-full body; moderate (or less) carbonation); a bit coffee- and roast-laden, more than anything, but slightly ashy and hollow overall; slightly green (like underroasted coffee) with toasted marshmallow / vanilla notes; a touch oxidized and hollow, with touches of heavy, heavy roast. Stale, fluffy, vanilla-tinged; a touch off. Lengthy, roasted and chocolatey finish: some vanilla, lightly sweet.
