Shared with good buddy Eric before going back to the grind at work. Bottled served in two pilsner glasses, refrigerated and allowed to warm to room temperature.
A - Black with a ruby tint with a huge 3 finger dark brown fluffy head with excellent retention and great sticky lacing all around our glasses.
S - Warming bourbon notes, chocolate, coffee, flaked oats, oak wood notes, dried fruits. The perfect blend of stout and bourbon aromas.
T - This is one hell of a sipping beer. Really does embody the character of a bourbon while still fully hitting the great chocolate, coffee, espresso bean, vanilla, malt, and a touch of flakes oats that you expect in a stellar imperial stout. The balance is truly refined and my brain bounces quickly from the bourbon flavors back to stout notes, but these are blended masterfully and the alcohol is very much present, but draws out the other flavors rather than inhibit.
M - Very warming booze with a full body and low carbonation. Chewy.
O - One of my favorite beers of one of my favorite styles. This really did live up to the hype and I can't wait to get my hands on another. Next time it will be drank on Christmas eve by the fireplace with dreams of sugar plums and bourbon casks in my head.
