Enjoyed this on tap at Founders brewery during their annual Black Party.

A - Black, completely opaque, zero head, zero lacing, not much happening

S - Bourbon, Carmel, light sweet citrus hops

T - Initial: Sweet Carmel, bourbon, super light citrus. finish: bitter level (6/10), smokey (2/10)

M - Medium/Full body, frothy, low viscosity

O - The look of the brew is not impressive what so ever. But, it is a sweet IPA, bourbon flavor blends very nicely what the carmel malt and dark notes. Do wish the citrus made more of an appearance- it is pretty light. Bourbon notes somewhat dominates.

Notes from black party(4/18/15) Draft 9.5%ABV

Can't find the exact listing in new or retired beers, and as this is from months ago, I'm assuming this is it.

Sherry BA Imperial Black IPA
Best in show for me. All the beers today are some shade of black but this has a nice, glossy look to it. Sherry is a new barrel to me, but I love the sweetness in the nose and on the tongue that it provides. Almost no hops to speak of. Super sweet malty goodness. I wonder how long it sat in that barrel???
