2013 bottle..pours a dark black with a tan head that eventually dissipates...nose is pretty solid with tons of chocolate..bourbon notes..vanilla slight coconut..mouthfeel is velvety smooth..medium bodied indeed that produces slick buttered rum soaked bourbon taste profile..solid finish all around, tasty not overly boozy bourbon stout..this is a smooth offering.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours from a bottle a deep brown black with a khaki head. Aroma is of bourbon, baker’s chocolate. Flavor is rich: chocolate, fig, vanilla-oaky-bourbon. A nice alcohol. Well-balanced roasty sweetness with a hit of delicate burnt bitterness. Nice full mouthfeel. A very good beer. If I keep drinking more of it I might have to rate it higher.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a jet black color with no lacing or head retention. Smells of vanilla and bourbon. Tastes like bourbon right up front with a vanilla and caramel finish. A very solid beer, and one that I would look for again.

Pours hazy and thick dark blackish with minimal tan head. Nose was dark malts, woody bourbon, cacao, hops, prunes. Tasted thick and rich, with a dark malt and oaky bourbon flavor up front, then some molasses, hops, vanilla, and cacao as it warmed. Very good.

Not super memorable. Pours black with food head and lacing. Oak barrel is overdone here. Bitter finish. Some dark chocolate. Tap at smoke and barrel.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lots of chocolate and coffee, bourbon flavor is light, too light to balance out the healthy vanilla flavors. Not the most absurdly balanced ba imperial stout, but a combination of only great flavors. Would drink again, and again, and maybe even a fourth time.

"Think the abv and label have changed. Light bourbon and a TON of chocolate on the nose. Sweet and decadent. Defiinitely a dessert beer. Reminiscent of Rogue, with a hint of bourbon replacing the bitterness in Rogues Chocolate or Double Chocolate Stout. Excellent."

Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate and bourbon. Sweet chocolate malt start with caramel and toffee followed by flavors of figs and vanilla. Finishes with bourbon and oak , dark cocoa, some smokiness and coffee. Some bitterness from the cocoa and coffee flavors and a little lingering booziness. Wow! This is a great brew!
