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

stumpyiliz (217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pour is thin bodied with very little to no head. Aromas of bourbon vanilla and chocolate. Tastes along the same line. Unfortunately the barrel aging has thinned the beer compared to normal siberian night. Whiskey notes are very dry and lacking in the full body taste. Simetimes too much time in the barrel is not the way to go. Maybe if they used freshly drained barrels the taste would better suit this beer.

Dark black brown with little head. Aroma bring the bourbon along with sweet chocolate malts. Very dry. Taste follows aroma with more intensity. Beer with bourbon poured in - rich and smokey. Some booze can't help but bleed through on this one. Intense flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

yourilevesque (1503) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
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 (655) - 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
