Bottle shared at Maakun's. Dark pour with an almost non-existing tan head. Notes of burnt caramel, hot bourbon, vanilla, subtle chocolate. Really intense bourbon. Nice. dwyerpg (6576) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 4, 2017
This combo results in a bit of a barleywines feel. Light molasses but a dry finish and not sweet. Good stuff.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2017 Draught at Modern Times. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with chocolate, toffee, nuts, bourbon, oak, licorice, coffee and dark fruits. Bitter finish with roasted malts, licorice, dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon, oak and chocolate. Exquisite imperial stout. Huhzubendah (3776) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Post-dinner Thanksgiving beer shared with Matt Murray.
Near black body with a thin, khaki hued head. Aromas of barley and bourbon. I get more of the old ale character in both the nose and flavor, with the imperial stout contribution taking a back seat. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Fun. Nickls (2634) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2017
