4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured thick, viscous looking black with a mild forming tan head. This was a killer beer. Quintessential for a Bourbob Bbl Imperial Stout hitting all the right spots. Roasted grains, chocolate, deep roasted coffee with whiskey and oak tones. Smooth, delicate and complex. A little bit of heat, especially in the finish.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
11.2oz bottle. just another gem from my buddy deftim. thanks, tim! pours a deep, rich garnet that sits black in the glass topped by a razor thin beige head that leaves a tight ring of lace. aroma is truly wonderful with and quite unique with notes of heavy dark chocolate, black cherries, plum skins, and brown-sugar coated figs backed by toffee, toasted barrel, coconut cookies, and spice cake. flavor is fantastic as well with more rich barrel notes of vanilla, coconut, caramel, and ashy bourbon coming forward ahead of black forest cake (chocolate and cherry), vinous notes, and cinnamon with a touch of roast on the back end. palate is smooth and full bodied with a rich, velvety texture and a beautifully balanced finish of chocolate, dark fruits, and woody bourbon. overall, this really is a great barrel aged imperial stout that represents the essence of the style.

Botella. Black colour, medium beige head. Pleasant aroma of a well roasted maltiness, chocolate and some dark fruit. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant flavour indeed: Plenty of roasted malt, chocolate, some dark fruit, sweet bourbon and a good bitterness. Sweet finish with a good roasted maltiness and chocolate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours pretty near to black with a perfect little light tan head. Some nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla bourbon notes. Taste is amazingly balanced. Not a total bourbon bomb, so notes of the beer itself are able to shine through. Chocolate, vanilla, a bit of bourbon sweetness. Nice, lasting roasted malt back. Great sipper.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours new-moon black with a fleeting, off-white head. The bouquet is a luxuriant intermingling of bourbon and toasted coconut with an undercurrent of black mocha - dark chocolate and café cubano. Full-bodied and creamy with lazy carbonation. The decadent flavor presents sweet fudge and vanilla crème accompanied by a generous measure of lush, buttery caramel. Finishes rich, sweet and warming. Big-time thanks to newcigarz for sharing this world class treat!
