Pours a deep dark chcolate brown with a thinner but lacey beige colored head atop.Aromas of dark fruit and vanilla stand out with a big shot of boubon booze,faint chocolate is detected as well.Alot going on the palate,toasty with vanilla notes mixed with brown sugar and dark fruit,not alot of chocolate or roast although the former is there.A sipper,it seems even bigger than what it is,a big price tage but a nice find.

Poured from the bottle, into a large snifter glass.

Deep black walnut body, not a spec of light getting through this thick opaque body. Head is a little over a finger, surprisingly light tan with a creamy body but not much staying power. Settles to a thick collar though, big and bubbled, but with a little mix of whispy top, and big bubbled head. Decent.

Big impressive aroma. Large barrel notes of caramel and sweet oak. Spicy toasty notes match with a big rounded sweetness of vanilla. Clean, thick but not overboard. Airy and dried with great accenting balance of wood and dry brown spices. Subtle but also large hint of what seems to be coming. Real big fantastic bouquet.

The palate though comes off slightly simpler, but also just as basic but getting every note and feel perfectly. Creamy, thick and roasty rich with mid palate that lingers with huge dark chocolate notes, a little bit of hop bitterness, and a great vanilla rich sweetness but cut with a hint of bitterness in mixed char and green herbal hop notes. The aroma hints at the palate wonderfully, but just with a more subtle easier take on the senses. No fruit, no big booze, no large sweetness, but great woody notes and mixing char, soft roast, and a playful hop twinge on the end.

Fantastic barrel aged example of an imperial stout, and a unique one at that. Delicious.

Batch 2 is much better than batch 1. I highly recommend this!

The worst Imperial Stout ever. Super thin, with little to no flavors, no barrel present.

Bottle opened on 7.12.14

Creamy smooth chocolate but a big oak-pine bite in the finish.

poured from 750 ml bottle into a central waters snifter. thanks again drinkdrankpunk for a great trade including this one.

a- aggressive pour produced an inch or so of khaki head with some good retention. jet black in color. looks spot on for the style

s- smell sharp bourbon and oak. some coffee, chocolate and hops. not quite as strong as i was hoping for, but still a nice nose.

t- similar to the nose. lots of bourbon and oak. chocolate and coffee underneath that. a little hop presence and more bourbon sweetness on the finish. as it warms, a little more of the bourbon notes show themselves, not nearly as in your face as a lot of other BA stouts, but very smooth. 10% abv is no where to be found

m- very little carbonation, which i expect for the style. a bit thin for my tastes, as I like my big stouts a bit more chewy. almost an oily consistency which lends to it feeling very coating with a nice lasting finish.

overally, not a bad beer but doesnt quite reach the level that some of the bad boys of BA stouts get. happy to have tried it, but wouldnt seek it out in a trade again.
