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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours black, with a medium foamy, tan head. The nose is assertive, and complex. Notes of chocolate, coconut, oak, peat, vanilla, and sherry. Sweet flavor, with very little burnt bitterness. Very heavy body, creamy, and smooth. This beer impressed me thoroughly. The aromas are layered very well, with the bourbon accenting the stout well, without overwhelming it. Not drinkable, exactly, but sip by sip, it disappeared far too quickly.

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.

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...
