355ml bottle, batch 4. Pitch black with brown head. Aroma of slightly roasted dark malts, chocolate, coffee beans, light vanilla, bourbon and wood. Taste is wood, slightly roasted dark malts, coffee beans, chocolate, bourbon and light touches of vanilla and dark fruits. Filling yet very smooth mouthfeel, light but somewhat prickly carbonation and big bourbon, wood and dark fruit aftertaste.

The bourbon barrel stout I judge all others by, malty, smooth and silky, vanilla, caramel, and a slight smokiness. This beer has no equal.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler from Stogies ’N Hops, served in a tulip glass. Pours heavily viscous, dark inky brownish black with medium dark tan head that laces heavily. Aroma is charred dark chocolate malt, bourbon, licorice, soy sauce, toasted oak. Taste is similar - incredibly thick, rich mouthfeel. Layers of amazing rich flavors - roasted oak barrels, whiskey, vanilla, toasted caramel, espresso beans, umami, molasses, dark chocolate. Boozy, though not excessively so - no way I’d guess the actual abv here. Lingers roasty and bitter chocolate on the finish. Amazing imperial stout, though I’d rank this just shy of the best out there like BCBS or Hunapu.

Very warming right off the bat as if it were brewed with oats, full bodied. Heavy more than warming at times. Big maple syrup stout with coffee and alcohol fire at the finish. Like taking a shot at the end. Party time! Should be shared at the end of the night, but maybe not after a ton of drinks cause it’s quite fortified itself.
