On tap at Beer Revolution. Aroma is a balanced blend of chocolate, roast and dark fruit with various chocolate notes being most prevalent. Milk chocolate and dark chocolate are present. Light roast character. Dark fruit notes are raisin and prune. No hop aroma. Pours black with a light mocha head with really good retention that clings to the edges. No lacing and big legs. Flavor is also dominated by rich chocolate notes. Sweet milk chocolate, some dark chocolate and light roast upfront. Mid palate you get some esters and some vanilla. Lots of complex barrel character to this one - hints of bourbon, the vanilla, some almond. Finish has a bit of alcohol heat and more bitter, dark chocolate. Full bodied with medium carbonation. No astringency and moderate alcohol heat. A lot of silkiness to this one. Overall this is a really enjoyable beer. Great chocolate and roast malt character with complex barrel notes. The alcohol is nicely balanced. I could drink a few of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thank you Sebletitje. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Sebletitjes Farewell Tasting. Black, little tanned head. Nose is huge mocha, milk chocolate, very sweet, lactic sweet, mocha ice cream. Taste is mocha sugar, milk chocolate, chocolate syurp, lacto sweet, sugar mocha ice cream & vanilla, sweet milk chocolate part is wonderful, there is a low red grape, vaguely sour bit which takes it a bit down for me. Body is lactose, milk chocolate, sugar, mocha. Very lovely with a small minor point. Given the infection stories this might turn ugly with time.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 750ml Feb 2015 bottle shared with brother, thanks for the share. Aroma: intense oak, vanilla with a hint of cherries and chocolate. Also kinda boozy. App: dark brown with small mocha head leaving great lacing. Taste and palate: full body, really creamy, finish is extremely dry with a subtle acidity and with a warning alcohol feeling. Overall: gotta love oaky beers as this is extremely oaky and dry. Great beer with this steak. Not too sure if drank alone it would be as good. Alcohol feels really strong and not a big fan of acidity in imperial stouts.

GMCC2181 (1597) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 3, 2016
2015 bottle from Stateline... Silva stout Cellar 3, batch 1. Popped the cork, huge bourbon nose. Monster khaki colored head with a black body. Lacing left on the snifter...Taste is roasted malts, light coffee note, bourbon makes its presence known in the aftertaste..., throw in some vanilla and oak...Classic barrel aged stout, but well balanced for a beer that sat in barrels for 18 months. Surprised since the nose was all bourbon. Body is silky smooth, easy drinker for a beer that is 10%. Overall great beer at a great moment.
