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

This one poured a very dark brown to black with a tan head. Aroma was big bourbon, fudge, light smoke, and vanilla. Flavor is similar, but not as big on the bourbon, very well rounded combo of a great impy and ba qualities . Not closing at all and even at 11% i could easily have a few of these.

12oz to wine glass. Super inky black pour with a dark brown head. Huge vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts, brownie, smooth bourbon, and coffee. Insanely smooth and delicious! Almost like a liquid brownie sundae. Oak, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and more throughout. The alcohol is damn near hidden. Just A+ stuff here!

Pours and inky black with a khaki head. Strong barley noise with chocolate and coffee notes. Flavors of roasted barley, chocolate and espresso with the barrel adding coming in on the backside, not overwhelmingly strong bourbon flavor, just a hint. Very good beer, find it and try it!

(draft @ Melt Bar and Grilled - Cleveland Heights, OH) Dark black pour with a thick and creamy tan head. Big coffee and vanilla aroma with some nice chocolate underneath. Chocolate and slight bourbon flavors at the start with a coffee, chocolate and light smoke flavor near the middle. Finishes with a sweet and oaky coffee finish with a lightly sweet aftertaste. Very roasty and very tasty.

Dark beer with a foamy brown head that left an attractive lace. Rich sweet malty nose with lots of bourbon notes. This is a hot, boozy beer with lots of oak, bourbon, vanilla bean, chocolate milk and a rich cherry fruitiness. Smooth mouthfeel with a long barrel finish. This is a great use of a barrel in a beer.

Draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head. Nose is quite bourbon forward with a bit of roasting underneath. Taste is quite boozy with some of the roasting coming through underneath. Still fairly smooth, though.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2013
On tap at Capones. Poured a black color with an off white head. Vanilla, oak, bourbon, dark fruits, and caramel. Alcohol content well hidden. Nice.

Nearly black color with a brown head. Lots of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla. Straight forward but really damn tasty. Very well crafted.

Mittenator (1354) - Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle. Deep garnet/black with a minimal head. Vanilla, caramel and hot booze. Chocolate, booze, and malt. Surprisingly light with a slick finish.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Dark black beer with tan head that disappeared almost immediately. Smells of heavy black caramel, coffee, chocolate, and raisin. Rich smokey, coffee ground, bitter cocoa. Almost herbal. Good.
