I am so lucky to add this to my list of beers I have tried.
This is an amazing example of what can be done with the art of brewing, and aging a beer in bourbon barrels.

The beer pours a very dark brown, looking just like bourbon county stout looks.

The smell is a strong spice-filled bourbon. To me, it just really looks and smells like Bourbon County. The taste is where it just goes to a whole new level.

When you first sip this beer, it seems as if the Bourbon taste is about to kill you.
But then it just gets so smooth.
Such a rich complex taste.

Hunaphu is the only other Imperial Stout that I would rate on the same level.
