2011 Vintage - Poured into a snifter
Appearance- Pours jet black, no light enters the glass. Just a black hole. A small tan head bubbles up, sits for a minute then retreats back down. Great legs, a wisp of lace here and there.
Smell- Chocolate hits the nose first, behind that is some coffee, and strong bourbon notes.
Taste- Chewy chocolate and vanilla on the palate first. Followed up by caramel, molasses, a little oak and smoke, and a faint hint of dark fruits. Bitter coffee roast on the finish, with lingering chocolate and bourbon on the palate.
Mouthfeel- Full body, ample carbonation, very creamy. ABV's hid very well, literally no burn. Ridiculously smooth! Spot on.
Overall- This beer does not mess around. Truly one of the best beers in the world. This fresh is better than BCS, it is not harsh at all, and the bourbon flavors are melded perfectly with the imperial stout base without needing to give it time to "mellow".
