Dark brown near black bother you with a viscous beige head. Burnt toffee, ripe plum, oak, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt. Flavor is a bit lacking. Sweet, finishing with a slightly harsh tannic note. Middle of the road.

Horrible fresh.
Very hoppy.
Has no bourbon taste whatsoever.
Anyone after a cheap bourbon-barrel beer should stray away from this, it needs at least a year or two of cellaring to eliminate the extreme hoppyness of this beer. There may be bourbon-flavor under this but you won't know for years.

Says "Aged in 'old' bourbon barrels" on label. Super fishy

Nice bourbon barreled imperial stout that I'd live to taste after some cellaring. A bit too overpowering on the bourbon taste. Still a solid beer though
