COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our award winning Siberian Night Russian Imperial Stout and aged it for 11 months in fresh bourbon barrels. The result blew us away. The dark chocolate malt yields a milk chocolate flavor that blends perfectly with the vanilla flavor from the barrel. The bourbon aroma adds the finishing touch.
2013 vintage: 10.9% abv, 58 IBU

Pours black with tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, coffee. Taste is vanilla, cream, and bourbon up front, followed by coffee, burnt malt and bitter dark chocolate. Really quite a change from sweet to burnt/bitter all in the course of one sip. Creamy mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Dark tan head on a near black body. Nose is rich with bourbon, coffee, cream and chocolate. Lots of elements here working in good balance. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, bourbon, molasses, cream, fudge, vanilla and some rich dark berries, with enough supporting hops. Dense rich body. Top notch dessert IS.

MacBoost (1735) - Penfield, New York, USA - APR 10, 2016
12oz bottle from shelf. Chugged in about 7 seconds. It was roasty, marshmallow coupled with horse dung and fudge. Mediocre at best. Fuck the great state of Ohio and all those who live in it.

Dark black. Medium khaki head. Tasted side by side with regular version. Thick and chewy. Roasted. Strong oak flavor...almost too much for me. Lasting bourbon. I liked the regular version better, this one masks the great toast flavor behind lots of bourbon woodiness. Enjoyed after running my 5th marathon. Thx JSquire.
