4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Good stuff but I’m really biased on this type of IS. Bourbon aroma with woody sweetness on the nose. Very dark with a caramel colored head. Light palate that an oily character. Roasted malts, caramel, woody, and bourbon. Might have needed a little more balance in the flavors. This has aged for at least a year so I expected a little more. Some fruit essences as well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a frothy tan head. Various flavor notes including coffee, chocolate, smoke and dark fruits. Also seemed to have a bit of a milk stout lactose sweetness and sourness as well. Kind of weird combo of flavors. This is good but didn’t like it as much as I had hoped.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Boise Co-op. Dark black pour, minimal head. Body is a bit thin, but all other characteristics are right on. Gentle aroma leads into richer and fuller taste, tons of roast grains. BBA elements a bit muted, but still a pretty solid RIS. One of the better ones from Idaho.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Foamy dark tan head lingered for a solid 5 minutes with great lacing... expected black brew.
Nose has quite a bit of oak and whiskey notes that when cold dominated the dark malts and fruits.. this brew needs warmth to really shine. With warmth, coffee and cocoa start to come out alot more.
Flavors are pretty much the same as the aromas but they emerge a little sooner, but it still needs to really warm up to allow the malts to help balance the heady wood and bourbon.
Body seems a bit more thin compared to bottles of the regular I’ve had in the past. If my predictions are accurate, the bottles of these are going to need some time to meld.. but this was pretty enjoyable off tap.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle, PDT 11/14/14- Pours black with a tan head that retains nicely. Aroma is bourbon, unique wood aroma here, strong, malt, roasted. The taste is similar, odd wood taste, bourbon is noticeable but not intruding, dark berries, red wine like, almost tart, like some unintended bugs got in there. Different.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour is black. The aroma is an odd sour bourbon. The taste is also a little off, the stout even seems a little thin. Kinda boring.
