Bottle pour to snifter. Similar (of course) to the non- bourbon version. Surprisingly, I liked the next non-bourbon version. Bourbon accents were muted.

Vanilla bean and bourbon forward. Other flavors of dark chocolate, lightly toasted grains, oak, brown sugar and hints of roasted coffee. More dark chocolate and raisins in the finish. Tart cherries come through as it warms. Medium/heavy bodied and very smooth.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with a thick mocha head...great retention and lacing. Aroma has nice bourbon with toasted coconut, dark chocolate, vanilla. Flavor follows suit and adds notes of mild smoke and brown sugar...awesome! Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a slightly boozy/oaky dark chocolate finish. So good!

I remember not liking the original siberian night, but it’;s been awhile. I do like this though. Really deep roastiness that fades a little bit to malty sweetness as the beer warms. Tannin mouthfeel from the barrel is noticeable. Not really capable of finding nuances tonight, but I do like this versus the first siberian night i had

The flavor and mouthfeel do not live up to the expectations set by the aroma. Still a very palatable beer, but not worthy of the price especially when sitting along side of other easily available beers in this category.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a thin espresso colored head. Aroma of wood & liqour. Medium mouth that is pretty creamy. Very hot, lots of booze. Hints of chocolate & coffee. A litlte caramel. As it warms up, chcolate starts to dominate the flavor. Chocolate milk w/ bourbon in it comes to mind. Not overly sweet either.
