2011 bottle from a generous beer friend split with 2 other friends . I was unaware of this collaboration when I obtained this bottle but was saving it for good times with friends.

A- Poured like any barrel aged imperial stout would, black with a few cream colored bubbles around the edges.

S- muted aromas which I am attributing to being cellared for 3 years. Faint honey and cocoa from the adjuncts, all the aromas that go with bourbon barrel aging but heavier on barrel aspects. Well rounded all about.

T- Smooth sipping barrel aged imperial stout. Muted honey and cocoa balanced but notable in the accompanying bourbon notes. Creamy, chocolatey, stouty

M- Really good - worth it

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

2012 vintage.

Gets a smaller fizzy head, little creamy and dark, great legs all over, super pitch black color.

Yeah, amazing stout with phenomenal bourbon. Some caramel cookie crumbs, into big cocoa, dark choc, little toffee like candy, mild sweet toffee candy, bit of vanilla barrel and some nice bourbon and barrel juice.

Taste brings great stout at first, dark malts, little coffee roast and black malt, touch of caramel and cookie like, into big dark choc, stout dark malts, little sweetness. Then nice vanilla barrel, little toasty barrel, but great smooth bourbon, very mellow, nice bourbon flavor and smooth rich at the same time. Finish is sticky heavy like, little dry, hint of warming booze finally, bit more cocoa and nice smooth bourbon, delicious.

Mouth is smooth, fuller bod, nice carb, very little booze.

Overall great, nice base stout with vanilla barrel and very nice smooth mellow bourbon.

2012 vintage, shared with JLindros and Threelions.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a motor oil black with a thin thin mocha head that faded almost immediately to thin wisps.

S - Aromas of chocolate, light roast malts, huge mellow bourbon barrel, huge soft bourbon notes, vanilla, coconut, incredible.

T - Taste is nice chocolate, light honey, super mellow bourbon. Clearly pappy, so so sweet bourbon, vanilla, oak, coconut. Chocolate it's huge so is the bourbon, rich and velvet, very smooth smooth bourbon.

M - Mouthfeel is super mellow, creamy.

O - Overall this beer was really awesome, the pappy really shines. Phenomenal.
