COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our award winning Siberian Night Russian Imperial Stout and aged it for 11 months in fresh bourbon barrels. The result blew us away. The dark chocolate malt yields a milk chocolate flavor that blends perfectly with the vanilla flavor from the barrel. The bourbon aroma adds the finishing touch.
2013 vintage: 10.9% abv, 58 IBU

Kaaaablawhaaa. This imperial stout does it all right. Massive chocolate aroma with pleasant vanilla and whiskey notes. Check. Opaque black thick body with 2 fingers of dark brown head. Check. Smooth balance that blends sweet chocolate with light burnt malt bitterness. Check. A high alcohol content that remains partially hidden, and never fusel. Check. Bring more. Quickly.

Dark black with a brown head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is sweet, chocolatey, bourbon. Smooth, drinkable, really good.

This is a perfectly balanced bourbon and beer brew! Midnight black pour that is as smooth as the other side of the pillow! Delicious!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap (repeatedly) at Ridgewood (Raleigh) Like any good stout, dark... very dark. Wonderful flavors of bourbon, coffee, and chocolate flow through greatly enhancing a very good stout. Most BBL aged stouts and porters are improvements over the non-BBL aged beer, and this is no exception - in fact, one of the most effective and delicious examples I’ve had to date.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a medium sized creamy dark brown head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweet red wine, amazingly strong coconut, vanilla, toasty malts, chocolate and more toasted coconut - a lot like an Almond Joy candy bar. The flavor was sweet toasted coconut, chocolate, tobacco, vanilla and an undertone of port wine and sour dark fruits. Long chocolate and toasted caramel finish. Full bodied and smooth. The alcohol was well concealed. Marvelous.
