4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vanilla, slight chocolate, milk on the nose. No huge coffee or booze smell like many in the style and I like that. Taste pretty smooth and clean for 11% abv. You get a healthy dose of toffee, vanilla and cream up front with a long boozy bitterness on the back.

Not the most attractive but exceptionally smooth & quite tasty! Velvet like on the palate for the high abv! Very good chocolate & bourbon flavors. The aroma is rich w/ bourbon & chocolate. The body is light enough to make this dangerously drinkable! Definitely worth a try even at its price point! Delicious!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Modest chocolate aroma. Black bodied. Thin tan head. Taste is of roasted malt and bourbon. Rich and warming to the palate. Meant to be enjoyed slowly as it has the feeling of being very potent.

355 ml bottle from Systembolaget, Vintage 2015, 11% abv. Black with a small size tanned head, some lacing. Mostly bourbon in the nose, oak and vanilla. Silky mouthfeel, gently carbonated. The bourbon taste is distinct but gentle and smooth, vanilla, oak, milk chocolate. Good without being particularly complex.

So the aroma is that of a strong Imperial Stout, fairly alcoholic. But the body doesn?t taste strong at all. Some roasted malt and chocolate together with a very smooth finish. Really nice beer

Draft at FS Addison. Very dark brown with thin tan head. Rich chocolate aroma and flavor. Smooth, rich, and not at all overpowering. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours out slightly translucent chestnut brown with a minor tan head. Aroma is chocolate and malt. Taste includes the chocolate and some vanilla and brown sugar. I found this almost too sweet but it makes a nice after dinner drink. The palate is a little too thin to be an imperial, but very enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bourbon Barrel Stout at 11% ABV. Pours a dark copper colour with a creamy-bubbly beige head, good retention and some creamy-bubbly lacing. Dark fruit aromas with roasted malts, burnt wood, leather and hints of nuts. The flavours are more on the chocolate malt to start with, but some nice warming, well-balanced mouthfeel continues with some light sweetness from the bourbon oak barrel, also creating some vanilla in the finish. Still, lots of dark fruits. Everything is so well-blended. A very nice brew.
