BeerZombies1 (37) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 11, 2014
American double / Imperial stout
12.7 % ABV
APPEARANCE: Poured out a deep dark night sky black, with reddish hues around the rim. No head at all and no lacing. Very small tan halo.
AROMA: Right away I am blown away by the nose on this. Intense chocolate covered berries, jammy, sweet malts. The rye barrel hits hard, vanilla, oaky. Nice espresso in there also.
TASTE: Blown away. Intense velvety chocolate and a ripe berries. Very flamboyant. No hiding the layers of flavors. Dark, deep, roasted coffee little spice and heat on the backend I'm assuming from the Templeton barrels.
MOUTHFEEL: Thick and syrupy like I expect form Bourbon County. Very little carbonation, coats the mouth in an oily slick feel.
OVERALL: I for one loved this beer! Very balanced for being so complex. My favorite Bourbon County to date.
RATING: 5/5 Zombie Heads!
