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.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
What an incredible beer! Dark black body with a medium head, the aroma is coconut, vanilla, roasted malt and dark chocolate. The taste and aftertaste are also so amazing with a lot of coconut, dark chocolate and the aged bourbon notes... alcohol very present but smooth for the high abv. Very highly recommended IRS!

Had at 2013 GABF...stupendous beer I could just chew the oak. The aroma is fantastic. The rich caramel and oak balance is heavenly. And I had this all in a stupid one ounce GABF glass. I am heading to Corona to try and get this in a real glass. A bucket list brew for sure.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Little 375 provided by Buckeyeboy for an impromptu mid-week tasting. Brownish head rises and drops pretty quickly... spotty lacing.
Nose is big and boozy... bourbon soaked tootsie rolls.. surprisingly good.
Flavor mirrors the nose with some background dark malt... long finish. Very rich and decadent.
Body is a bit light probably accentuated by the massive ABV.
Thanks Jeremy... Surprised I have not heard of this gem.
