Courtesy of ericE. Actually, this is a fairly decent imperial stout. The "bourbon" barrel aging, actually is pretty much devoid of bourbon. There is some decent oak notes in the nose and light vanilla in the taste. Iíd guess that this was a bourbon barrel that was used more than once. There is a bit of greenness on the finish and itís definitely over carbonated. But, still, itís solid.

22oz bottle, poured 3/21/10. Pours a deep black, with a big tan head that takes a few minutes to settle. Smell is dominated by sweet vanilla, with a tiny bit of roast breaking through. Taste has lots of oak, vanilla and alcohol, with some roast and not too much bitterness. Finish is has an unexpected bitter herbal note. Canít find any bourbon in this, they must have used these barrels a few times.

Opaque black pour with a tan head. Chocolaty roast aroma. Oaky vanilla roast flavor. Just a slight tinge of bourbon. Very minimal bourbon overall. Bitter finish. A bit boozy.

Thanks to kiefdog for this one. A: Pours a deep shade of black with a tall mocha colored head. Pretty nice retention and some lace. S: Rather light aromas. Light char, chocolate malt, and a hint of coffee. T: Not good, char, booze, chocolate, and slight band aid like notes. M: Medium in body, zippy carbonation. D: Not a favorite of mine. Wonder if the bottle had started to turn. Have my own bottle will revisit.

Draft at EBF. Pours a black body with a tan head. Roast y chewy malt tones light licorice and some whiskey tones almost a bit scotch like in terms of wood tones. A modest warming with chocolate malt roasted and hints of vanilla and wood. nice.

Pouring at EBFís Night of the Barrels. Pours a hazy black. This thing is all chocolate and roast. A little sweetness, more roast and caramel. Not bad.

Bottle shared by argo0 on 12/13/09: Pours an oily opaque with a well-lacing beige head. Aroma of doughy biscuity dark caramel malts and a hint of dark chocolate and lots of fresh grapefruity hops. Starts with good fullness and rich dark caramel and chocolate malts with some alcoholic warmth and resiny hop notes. Not much bourbon character, but still has good dark chocolaty complexity.

Ibrew2or3 (6854) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours mahogany with ruby hues and full tall mocha head. The aroma is roasty heading into burnt malts and some oak. The taste is a bit bright with dark to burnt malts as well as oak notes. By midway some mild chocolate notes combine with bourbon sweetness. The sweetness doesnít last long as oak, roasty malts and faint dark chocolate dry it out some into the finish.

Thanks to kiefdog for the share. Pours midnight black with a dark tan head. Nose is bourbon, booze, band-aid, burn, and roasted malts. Flavor is smoke, roast, some booze, some dark chocolate, and very little barrel. Not my kind of BA Stout.
