Shared bottle (thanks Ferris).
Strong flavor. Weak point may be the particular bourbon barrel used, although the BBL effects are well done: Obvious bourbon notes, a faint wood note, leaving the malts showing too.
Thick, smooth and syrupy body.

Tasted during RBWG grand tasting. Thanks Ferris for sharing. Near-black color. Thin ring of tan head. Dots and bits of lace. Fantastic coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, mild bourbon oak. Medium to bigger body. Smooth chewy thick texture. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, bigger bitterness too. Light bit of pleasant heat on the back end. Very nice BA imperial stout.

Pours black. Bit of foam. Nose is sweet, vanilla, bitter cocolate. Taste is sweet, vanilla in there too, tobacco, dries your mouth. Hint of alcohol, warming, nice. Great, exactly to the point.

Robust and roasty with elements of cola, caramel and slight butter. Bourbon radiates throughout this not quite full bodied effort making it satisfyingly complex and potent. Very good and individual.

Beautiful bottle: Thanks Leighton: Served in a Chouffe glass.
Black beer with a medium sized light brown head.
Aromas of chocolate, mocha, roast, earth, chewing gum, mint, manure, coffee, some alcohol and slight whiskey tone.
Flavour is light bourbon with some good chocolate notes, pretty strong bitters, malts, wood, mocha, coffee, some spice, cacoa, earth, nuts, roast and raisin.
Aftertaste is bitter, chocolate, coffee, some mocha and spiced wood tints with a hint of bourbon.
Low carbo, spiced mouthfeel between watery and creamy, more than medium bodied and a bitter light dry texture.
