Bottle from mikem409 to finish my local4local bif haul. Pours coffee like black with no head, a oil like slick on top. Nose of bouron and oak. Taste adds light black coffee roast. Body seems a tad thin but the ABV lifts.

Growler shared by b3shine. Pours a clear dark cola brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, has a sweetness that works well with the coffee and barrel, I am a fan.

32oz growler, thanks to b3shine for sharing. Black color. Thin ring of khaki head. Dots of lace. Nice big oatmeal, touch of dark fruit, espresso-type coffee. Bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Nice mild warmth. Love the big coffee here, and a good bit of bourbon oak comes through too. Mild toasted oak, mild vanilla, very mild spiciness to it. Great chewiness to it, silky kind of creamy texture. Awesome coffee imperial oatmeal stout. Touch of maple. Bit more dark fruit character to it, but still awesome.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (12 oz). From Tony, thanks!
Appearance: Black with a small beige head and little lacing.
Aroma: Rich bourbon and coffee features along caramel, vanilla and roasted malts.
Taste: Medium sweetness with again a burst of bourbon and coffee along vanilla, rich caramel, a bit of alcohol and mild coffee bitterness.
Palate: Medium to full body. Moderate to medium carbonation. A bit oily. Rich chocolatey and caramel finish.
Overall: Rich and decadent barrel-aged RIS, but with less than 10% abv it’s not a monster and it’s quite well balanced. Tasty and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a good black with a beige rim that leave some lacing. Nose is of baker’s chocolatw, cocoa powder and vanilla. Taste is or chocolate, both dark and milk, not really bourbon-forward or boozy even. It reminded me a lot of Samuel Smith Organic Chocolate Stout. Body was medium and carbonation moderate. OK but not really my thing.
