2014 Bottle thanks to Minh. Pours a motor oil with tan head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong roast, dark chocolate, wood, booze. Thick mouthfeel with nice syrupy roast, coconut, dark chocolate, light booze, oak. Very impressive.

Comparing this to Chocolate Rain or Borbon County.....it just didn?t have all it?s flavors on the palate creating a symphony of flavors....there?s an alcohol burn with the taste of soy sauce....and it?s thick like whole milk.

22 oz bottle is yellow wax (2013) shared by Huhzubendah, thanks Matt! Pours a near black with a lasting edge head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, dark fruit syrup, slight oak and vanilla. Flavor is same with full carbonation balancing the full syrupy mouthfeel. Delicious with dark cherries and rye in the finish.

22oz bottle (batch 1) in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, bourbon and oak and vanilla, some chocolate, light sweetness, and hints of dark fruits. Flavor the same with a great blend. Smooth, thicker texture. A really, really good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 2014 vintage. First review? Black. Very black. Tan head. Quite the beast. Aroma is big. Bourbon. Lots. Vanilla. Graham crackers, oreos dunked in condensed milk. Toasted coconut. 63% chocolate. Espresso, toffee, molasses. Yep, all of that. This is big, it’s sweet, and it is quite delicious. The barrel character is quite tame. Booze is in check. It is thick. It is chewy. Not much bitterness offered. Smooth, creamy, minimal carbonation. This hits all notes a BA imperial stout has to offer. Honestly one of the best I’ve ever had.

Bottle - Bittersweet chocolate and bourbon barrel. Jet black with a brown head. Big rich chocolate, long syrupy finish. Booze is there but subtle, as are bottle notes. Very nice.
