look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Poured into a Delirium snifter on 9/17/12
With much appreciation to PDXHops
A) A dark brown that looks black in the glass. I was able to get about a finger's worth of foam easily, but it doesn't hold long. Wispy retention and a few strands of lace.
S) I like the aroma on this one; it smells close enough to s'mores (at least initially) to tickle my fancy. Roasted chocolate is held in check and there is a decent crackery grain note that blends in with damp oak. I reckon the vanilla overtones from the barrel account for the marshmallow notions. Actual bourbon tones are faint.
T) Bourbon leads things taste-wise but it is a very tangy kind of bourbon that is not front and center for long (though some carries over to the finish). Charred oak comes next leading to a tangy roast. Chocolate comes in with some dark roasted grains.
M) The body is almost velvety smooth; a medium sort of feel. However, carbonation is too high for such a calming feel to be realized fully. Slight graininess on the finish.
D) Overall, this one is pretty solid. The barreling seems a bit on the young side, though.

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.
