A: Black with a creamy mocha head, beautiful.

S: Tantalizing bourbon character of oak and vanilla, a touch of caramel, chocolate and coffee in the nose. Smells amazing.

T: A bit of alcohol and some vanilla and chocolate followed by more vanilla and chocolate, some oak, caramel, molasses and licorice. A touch sweet.

M: Full bodied and creamy smooth.

O: Not quite as good as the prior year's version, but an excellent example of a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout. Definitely worth a try.

$30 for the bottle at a distributor in Massachusetts.

The aroma is excellent. Best aspect of the beer. Big vanilla. Bourbon, plum, warm oak, caramel, delicious. Not sure this can be any better.

Taste is excellent as well. For a barrel aged stout, it is less cloying and winey than some other barrel aged beers. I like it like this. Still, it's fruity, roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate baking bars, and relatively slightly hot. Coconut at the end. Nice.

Mouthfeel is good but the drinkability is great although that might just be the alcohol talking at this point.

An excellent barrel aged stout but not sure the 30 dollar price tag is warranted. Bottle looks great and impressive so maybe worth it for a special occasion to share with others.
