Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Opaque black color with less than one finger of diminishing beige foam head. Scant lacing remains on the glass.

S: Oatmeal and raisins are identifiable. Qualities of the smell are familiar and endearing at first, but get repetitive. Slight coffee is also detected, but alcohol is not.

T: Begins off-dry, with dark chocolate, bourbon, and lesser dark fruit. Moderate acidity develops into the middle where dryness increases while spirit fades before much oak can emerge. The finish is moderately bitter, with lingering dark fruit.

M: Medium viscosity, slightly acidic and warm on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: Pleasant in its chocolate quality, but without much bourbon influence beyond the initial burst of flavor to distinguish it as the value-added version of this imperial stout. Not the most well-rounded representative of its style, but hardly a dessert beer.

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.
