Black color, the head is small. The aroma is moderate, there is roasted malt, bourbon, some wood. Soft mouthfeel; nice chocolate flavor, with a creamy character, and a mild vanilla and tobacco accent from the barrel; I like sweeter Imperial Stouts, but this is also very good.

Black topped with a decent tan covering.
Nose is rich roast, dark chocolate, spice, dark fruit peel, earthy, molasses, toffee, light wood.
Taste comprises milk chocolate, spice, earthy, dark toffee fudge, subtle bourbon strokes, fruit peel.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Decent BA impy.

Bottle (from Brooklyn). Opaque black color, good beige head. Strong bourbon vanilla aroma, some toasted malts and alcohol. Medium-bodied to full-bodied. Sweetish vanilla, some alcohol. Vanilla overdose. A bit too much vanilla. jtclockwork (16436) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of vanilla, bourbon, sweet chocolate, chocolate syrup, really sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, oak and chopped nuts. The nuttiness saves this from being an overly sweet disaster. Still a bit too sweet for me. Medium body. Benzai (15446) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2015
