From notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.
The pour is dark brown in color, but it is noticeably thin from the pour. A light brown or ruby meniscus.
The aroma is full of dark chocolate and Pappy. The aroma blends well together, the sweet dark chocolate and the dryness of the oak and Pappy is an interesting effect.
The flavor starts sweet, with lots of milk and dark chocolate. As the sip continues, the Pappy comes into play, adding a warming sensation to the stomach. Roasted malt, some espresso, and a bit of vanilla add some depth. The chocolate and Pappy really control the flavor, though.
The body is a little bit lighter and more watery than I would like in my barrel aged imperial stouts. Overall I felt it was fairly smooth, with a proper medium carbonation and an alcohol presence that stayed in the background.
Overall I found this to be an above average beer. When compared to other top tier barrel aged beers, though, it does not compete.

2011 bottle, 6 of 26. Shared with a few buddies on my deck on the eve of Independence Day.
A: Looks great! Black with a nice tan head.
S: mmm - The perfect balance of Bourbon and Chocolate.
T: Delicious! The taste follows the nose. Chocolatey Bourbon goodness.
M: Full bodied but not as thick as some other RIS I have had.
O: This is a great beer. I'm glad I had the opportunity to taste it. Some of the other reviews I've read on here mention slight oxidation. There was no oxidation with this bottle.
