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

Black with light head. Aroma packs a boozy punch...pronounced bourbon, chocolate and coffee. Bourbon flavor is well balanced, not overpowering. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Black in color with a decent tan head. Aroma is of vanilla, chocolate sauce, roasted malts, and sticking your head in a bourbon barrel. Taste is of vanilla, charred oak, cocoa, coffee, and molasses.

Bottle. The look is dark, midnight with no stars, tan decent head. The smell is big, bold, rich, alcohol, coffee, whiskey, wood, and great. The taste is much the same, more tannic oak, good stuff.

Partagée en compagnie d’Alexandre en ce dimanche matin. Cheers l’ami! Le liquide qui coule dans mon verre est d’apparence plutôt mince et loin d’être noir. Des reflets bruns et roux percent ce liquide aux allures parfaitement filtrées et translucides. Une mousse claire se tient parfaitement et glorieusement. Des arômes dominés par un bourbon vanillé, du caramel et une cerise griotte. La même cerise se manifeste également en bouche alors que je découvre un liquide très acide au corps particulièrement mince, fortement amer et houblonné. Très étonnantes ces saveurs de bourbon, de dessert et de vanille hyper acidifiée et mince. Beaucoup de contradictions dans ma bouche alors que je peine à trouver un certain équilibre dans cette tempête qui bouscule mes sens. Finale mi sèche, amère et vanillée. Je me demande sérieusement si j’aime ou pas.

Thirsty Dog Bourbon Barrel Aged Siberian Night makes the mark in the category. Dark pour with a thick tan head. Aroma is chocolaty with peanut notes. Taste is chocolate, coffee and peanut with a tinge of bourbon. Surprisely smooth finish given the ABV. Siberian Night is about at good as it gets in the RIS category.

Alpha10 (756) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2016
2016/07/31 - Pours black with a fluffy tan head that quickly reduces and leaves lots of splotchy lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate, coffee, charred wood, oaky vanilla, licorice, bourbon, vegetal hops, light butterscotch and a hint of coconut. Taste is creamy milk chocolate, mild coffee, smokey wood, oaky vanilla, lots of bourbon, some vegetal notes and light butter. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky with smooth carbonation and a moderately sweet, boozy, warming finish. Finish is a little harsh, but overall this beer is delicious and nicely balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, coffee. Taste is vanilla, cream, and bourbon up front, followed by coffee, burnt malt and bitter dark chocolate. Really quite a change from sweet to burnt/bitter all in the course of one sip. Creamy mouthfeel. Good stuff.
