500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black. Big khaki head. Beautiful lacing and great retention.

Smell - Extremely oaky. Sharp oak. Even a bit of acidity from the oak. Bourbon. Dark chocolate. Black roasted malt.

Taste - Coffee malts. As much oak in the taste as in the nose. Sharp woodiness. Bitter chocolate. Bourbon flavor lingers into the finish.

Mouthfeel - The oak is pretty intense. Detracts from the drinkability, but it's a nice flavor. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Crazy oak. Covers the beer a bit, but the bourbon adds a nice element.

500 ml bottle into snifter, bottled in late 2013. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and rocky tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, dark bread, vanilla, toast, toffee, bourbon, oak, light raisin/plum, and roast/oaky earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, toffee, toast, bourbon, oak, dark bread, light raisin/plum, and roast/oaky earthiness. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, vanilla, toffee, toast, bourbon, oak, dark bread, light raisin/plum, and roast/oaky earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; with a great malt/barrel balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very creamy, smooth, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome barrel aged imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
