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.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of vanilla, bourbon, sweet chocolate, chocolate syrup, really sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, oak and chopped nuts. The nuttiness saves this from being an overly sweet disaster. Still a bit too sweet for me. Medium body.

Bottle... Pours black with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a decadent fusing of vanilla and fudge. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is roasted and chocolaty with a lightly boozy, warming finish. I didn’t pick up a lot of bourbon in this. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!
