COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At 10.5% abv this black as night ale is aged in Four Roses Bourbon Barrels for 6 months. The Bourbon Character of the barrels comes through nicely and pairs exquisitely with the rich dark malt flavors of coffee and chocolate. This is a rich beer that is made to be a full palate experience. Pair this one with a piece of dark chocolate or a side car of a nice bourbon and your night will be complete.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a deep brown with a dark tan head. Notes of bourbon, oak, vanilla, brown sugar, roasted malts, molasses, honey, toast, coconut, and marshmallow. Medium-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a warming, rich mouthfeel. Excellent. Having this right after such a good IPA was such a jarring, satisfying experience.

Taste from a snifter at Wicked Weed during RBWG, thanks to whomever shared this! Black color. Thin, light brown head. Dots of lace, short ropes. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Tasty bourbon barrel imperial stout, though maybe not as thick and chewy as many are. Some alcohol heat in the finish, but not a burn nor bite.

[ Tap ][ Wicked Weed ][ 4oz ][ Globe ][ Free ][ 2/8/14 ]
>> Deep, clear red pour with spotty brown foam. Mocha layer. Nose is mild alcohol, vanilla extract, brownie, chocolate mousse. Taste is turbinado sugar, vanilla, fudge, buttery mousse. A tad sweet with a lightly acidic finish. Not sticky at all, not overoaked, no lemon, no paper. Really good.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Pours dark with a bit if tan head. Aroma of mocha with bourbon (darn good combo IMHO), along with malt. Malt, bourbon, and chocolate come together nicely in the taste, with the malt and bourbon staying on the tongue. I believe WickedWeed may become a favorite brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014 RBWG At the brewery’s downstairs tasting room. Black pour with a tan head. Complex aroma. Vanilla, coffee, chocolate, dark dried fruits. The bourbon is in the mix here for the aroma and the flavor but never becomes a flavor of it’s own. Very nice.

Holy crap was this beer awesome. Inky black pour with one finger of chestnut brown head. Absolutely gorgeous aroma, notes of vanilla and wood with dark fruit, raisins, toasted oak, chocolate, bourbon. Incredible. Flavor is bursting with rich and decadent character. Wood and vanilla combo is great and really brings out the chocolate. Full bodied and coating finish. Ba-hoss.

Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, wood, roasted malts, mild dark fruits. The taste is roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, mild wood and dark fruit. Medium bodied, smooth, nicely balanced.

chinchill (1388) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2014
On tap at the brewpub which reports 3 malts (including honey malt), rye, honey, brown sugar and dextrose. Two samples, 2 days apart. Pours dark and opaque red-brown with a small, very durable head. WW uses a pre-rinsed BBL to great effect on the aroma, flavor and smooth feel. Nit-picking, I note a bit more burnt flavor in the aftertaste than optimal. O: very enjoyable; every aspect excels.
