Very complex and love the rye aging which is subtle but does take the coffee edge off a bit. Dark and rich. Depth.
On tap. Four moon tavern.

No way this is only 8%, right? As it warms, more vanilla and acetone. Palate: Full body, slick texture, syrupy texture.

Black pour with a brown head. The aroma has some very creamy bourbon notes as well as some chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is also very nice. I get a lot of whiskey as well as some barrel character, cream and chocolate. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer, thanks for sharing Jason.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
FOBAB ’12. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is definitely bourbon forward with some decent chocolate notes, a bit of a woodiness, and a light roast with a few dark fruits. Flavor is similar. Fairly rich chocolate, a good amount of bourbon, a few dark fruits, some wood, and a moderate roastiness towards the end. Finishes pleasantly dry with some wood and roasts before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium, smooth body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid, well balanced BA Imperial Stout. Nothing special, but nicely done and enjoyable.
