4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2016 355 ml bottle. Pitch black with a small brown head. Sweet aroma of bourbon, oak, syrup, dried fruits, chocolate, caramel and alcohol. Taste is roasted malt, bourbon, syrup, dried fruits and chocolate. Full-bodied with looong bittersweet finsh. "One of the best imperial stouts Iíve had. But I think the 2015 version was better than 2016, less boozy."

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
roasty, coffee, chocolate, licorice, alcohol, soy sauce, woody, rich and rewarding, the bourbon is there, but I would have wished for it to shine through even more.
Pitch black, medium Brown head, lacing.
Heavy salty, heavy sweet, mid-bitter, slightly peppery, insanely rich and ABV very well integrated.
Extremely fullbodied, oily, almost chewy feel, soft carbonation, very, very long, salty, roasty and warming finish.
If I Could have felt more of the bourbon this would have gotten an even higher mark. Still balancing a beer with this ABV without it being boozy is a feat worthy of a world class brewery, which Avery is!

Aroma of brown sugar, toffee, licorice, vanilla. Very sweet with a thick mouthfeel, taste of light biscuit with a lingering licorice and vanilla background, as it warmsup the bourbon is more forward, giving it a slight boozy edge and a more rounded feel, after taste of brown sugar and vanilla.
