Old bottle - Lifeless extremely dark brown with a faint red hue. Smells malty, with a very slight hint of funk. Taste is malty, peppery, with oak. Not bad.

Vanilla and dried, dark fruits. Tons of oak flavor and a bit of smooth heat even after a year. Drinks very easily, low carbonation. The finish is sweet and slightly earthy.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 Pitch black with some dark crimson on the bottom and leaves behind tons of lacing. The aroma has rich chocolate, vanilla, milk, and some sweet roasted malts. Flavor is very rich!! It has Milk Chocolate, oak, vanilla, caramel, sweet roasted malts and some mild hop notes. The body is hefty and the carbonation is light; Palate is very creamy and pleasant. In terms of Imperial Stouts, this very well may be one of the best Imperial Stouts Iíve ever had.

Big thanks to Justin for trekking this back to me from Michigan. Inky black pour with a nice tan head. Aroma is vanilla, oak, bourbon, tannins, chocolate, marshmallow and toast. Flavor is bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, leather, earth, marshmallow, with a decently bitter finish. Smooth drinking for a 10% (granted this one had a few months on it). Creamy mouthfeel.

The best barrel aged stout that has easy access all of then time. Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma is pretty weak with barely any bourbon on the nose. Taste is awesome though, great bourbon taste balanced with vanilla, burnt sugar roasty taste. Small burn but overall this is a great beer. Would love to see some variants roll out soon.

Bottle from trade with umich03jm. Black pour, very little head, nice aroma of raisins, malt and bourbon; light but nice. Flavor is raisins, bourbon, vanilla and alcohol. Moderately complexity and moderate intensity, and tasty. Finishes with some bourbon and warming alcohol. Very easy to put drink. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the bottle, pours black with a thin white head. Oaky and smooth alcohol aroma With notes of milk chocolate and dark berries, molasses. Taste is smooth and silky, chocolate and alcohol up front, merging to a powerful blend of bourbon and black cherries and alcohol, a hint of vanilla. The oak aging comes through nicely, very smooth and agreeable. Excellent beer.
