Bottle courtesy of maximum12, I'd trade with this guy anytime. Thanks again!
Pours a sludge black color with a thin white head. Looks about like this style should.
Aromas are whoa... bourbon! And not a whole lot else. Damn, if I didn't know I poured a beer, I would have thought I poured a shot of whiskey. This is not neccassarly a bad thing.
Taste is much morE balanced than the nose suggested. Taste starts out with some cream, dark bitter bakers chocolate, and some cola and bourbon notes. Finish is boozy, with some coconut sweetness, alcohol warmth, and booze notes.
Mouthfeel is nice and smooth. Good body, and maybe a touch thin.
Overall, this is a barrel aged stout that is better than the sum of its parts. Not in the upper echelon, but this is easily in the second tier. Very good stuff.

On tap at a local C-Bus joint. Finger of off-white head over a deep, rich dark brown body. V. nice looker (just like my date!). Whiskey, whiskey, whiskey on the nose. I hope that you like whiskey. Same song as far as the flavors go... with just a hint of dark fruit emerging from the whiskey river towards the end as it warmed. Good carbonation (surprisingly), and a nice smooth mouthfeel. Perfect feel for a BBS. Well, I hope that you are ready for a whiskey punch in the face. It could use some time to mellow, and I am sure that this is much better with a little age on it. It was ok... but I wouldn't push my grandmother out of the way to get one. I am now becoming convinced that I enjoy BB-aged beers much more from a bottle, with at least a year under their belts... on tap may be too fresh, and too whiskey for my personal liking. I would like to give the standard Siberian Night a go some time... I am sure it is quite good.
