Bottle from exclusive food mart. Black pour, thin brown head with decent retention. Fades to a thin lace. Aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, cocoa, light dried fruit and coffee. Smells great. Taste is milk chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and caramel. Smooth mouthfeel, but still thick and almost syrupy on the palate medium carbonation. Really a nice BA imperial stout. Awesome.

Bottle from unknown in trade. Pours an opaque brown-black, little bit of tan head. Aroma roasty, some coffee, booze. Body medium, with a full, creamy oaky finish, bittersweet chocolate. Some warming in the back end. Well done, if not in the very top tier.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a trade a while back so the booze has faded pretty well. Oak and vanilla aromas. Little bit of alcohol there as well. Flavor is slightly roasty with a little bit of dark fruit plum and cherry. Finish is a touch tart and a little off for me. Bittersweet and cocoa working in there as well. Pretty nice.
