Pours very dark with bluish highlights. Smells and tastes incredible - roasts, malty, chocolaty with licorice overtones.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a dark black with some brown, very thin head, splotchy lacing, but who the heck cares one bit about a slight ding on appearance after a single sip of this stuff. Aroma of espresso, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, some roast. Flavor follows, full coffee stout in effect, bourbon complementing things very well, coming in firm but gentle after an espresso roast cleans up an initial sweet chocolate. The progression is absurdly impressive, super well-designed, a work of science of the senses. Mouthfeel is tauntingly sticky initially but it becomes silky and fades so nicely. Fine hobbies and pursuits I have, many pleasures in life are not to abandon, but this elixir is to die for. OK, Iím caught up in the moment, but wow. Thanks, R!

Bottle. Poured black with a ring of foam. Lots of vanilla, oak, coffee and chocolate in the aroma. Very rich, viscous palate. Taste is a bit of pine, coffee with cream, charred oak, and of course dark chocolate. I rarely seek out barrel aged imperial stouts anymore, but this one I really enjoyed. The bourbon was not over powering.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very dark pour with almost no head. Smells of anise, bourbon, dusty bookshelf, roasted hop, coffee, dark chocolate. Thick creamy dark chocolate taste with plenty of roasted hoppiness. Reminds me of a creamier smoother version of Expedition. Booze is well hidden, very little burn. Hop bitter becomes background after a few sips and you can better pick out the bourbon notes. Some dark fruit in there as well.

Poured black with brown foam, just what youíd expect from a stout. The smell had me concerned with so much bourbon. The flavor however was a perfect blend of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and coffee! The feel was smooth and goes well with the style. This is one of the best barrel aged stouts Iíve ever had!
