4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma starts with dark malts and bourbon sweetness, some dried fruits like dates, a bit of brown sugar and a hint of caramel. Taste is really well balanced. There is caramel and some bourbon at first giving a bit of sweetness but the finish is more roasty and bitter with a bittersweet caramel and bourbon aftertaste. Body is on the heavy side but not really as thick as other BBA imperial stouts. Overall I think itís a really good "beginner" barrel aged stout. Easy to get but well made and tasty.

Thick vanilla ice cream nose. Itís thick And delicious but a bit too sweet to be excellent. The vanilla from the barrel is the star all the way through. No real boozy heat to it which surprising and quite delightful.
