4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours pitch black with tan head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, char, vanilla, and espresso. Heavy mouthfeel, yet thinner for most BA stouts I’ve had. Still, it has a velvety texture. Flavor is booze, vanilla bean, espresso, char, chocolate, and finishes with a touch of bourbon that lingers a touch. Solid.

Big malty, grainy, chocolate, roasty, aroma, light notes of vanilla and booze. Thick dark blackish color, brown creamy head. Very roasty, chocolately malt, semisweet, notes of oak, finishes with some bourbony/boozy character. Smooth for the high boost.

12 oz bottle into a tulip. Vintage unknown. Pours a pitch black with a wispy mocha head. Nose is roast, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and light oak and booze. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, and lots of oak. A bit too thin. Not bad, but not amazing.

12-oz., capped and foiled. Thanks, A! Pours jet black with a dense and creamy tan head. Big sweet vanilla, chocolate, and apricot nose. Sticky thick body. Solid carb. Roasty thick graham crackers and chocolate on the mid palate. Long earthy finish. Very nice.

bottle pour to snifter..pretty black as expected small mocha tan head..nose is spot on with the bourbon taking the lead..some chocolate and vaniila bean in the equation..mouthfeel is interesting sip at first is smooth and surprisingly lighter than anticipated..however the warmth and booze does make itself known on the linger with an overall nice coating of the palate with bourbon..slight heat and some vanilla..overall pretty enjoyable offering...nice nitecap of a beer...

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Expectation: I have mixed feelings about the BBA version of a beer I love.
Motivation: regular Siberian Night was one of the first Impy Stouts I liked, along with Bell’s Expedition, that really turned me on to the style. Curious to see what adding bourbon and wood will do to it.
Hardware: 12oz bottle of the 2013 vintage into La Sniferette
Nose: strong wood, bourbon, roast, vinous, metallic and slightly sour
sip: slightly boozy and vanilla that gets milkier as it goes
Taste: dark roast bitterness
Misc: fairly smooth with a pronounced bourbon finish
Conclusion: dangerously easy to drink with complex flavors.

Pours jet black out of bottle. Aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee and some bourbon. Taste is strong chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Not much bourbon in the taste. Creamy mouthfeel. Delicious. Wish there was more bourbon in the taste.
