Opened this the night before my Birthday. Got to celebrate early right? Poured into a Firestone Walker Teku. Thank you TommyGuz!

Appearance: Beautiful, deep brown/black like 80% dark chocolate. Virtually no head with a tiny amount of carbonation coming up to the surface of the bottle. The rim is a very narrow brown with tight bubbles all around.

Nose: The nose is of rich fudge with a hint of bourbon. It smells less like a beer than almost anything I have ever had the pleasure to inhale. Smells like it will truly meet it's world class reputation.

Taste: This has a very strong bourbon barrel character. Whereas the flavor profile of the firestone walker barrel beers remind me of a flagship red blend, very complex and balanced, this beer on the other hand reminds me of a single malt scotch; pure, raw power. 20 seconds after the initial hit of very strong whisky and chocolate there is a strong rush of malty character in the best of ways. This beer is saying that it is pure imperial stout.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel on this is so thick it is chewy. The carbonation is just spectacular and coats the mouth in a very soft blanket of creamy bourbony heaven with a nice hot kick. It is a true delight to drink and I am sorry that not everyone gets the privledge to have this one.

Overall: WORLD CLASS BARREL AGED IMPERIAL STOUT. I thought that I was over this style, but this beer proves that when done right it can be a pleasure to drink. There are so many barrel aged beers that I feel a 4 oz pour is to much. This is a beer where 12 oz is not nearly enough.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Edit- dropped down rating because 2nd bottle was thin. The core reason why I liked this was because of the thick boozy fudge I got out of first bottle

bottle #548

A- Thick black oil, minimal coffee colored lacing with minmal legs. This liquid gums up the glass big time.

S- Dark thick barrel fudge. That makes up 90% of the nose. The rest is burnt raisins, figs, toffee. Straight up dark chocolate fudge with booze. Fantastic

T- Kinda wanted to go higher on the rating, but didn't want to go crazy. Boozy creamy dark fudge chocolate stout. Same ratio as the nose. This is liquid booze brownie. I need more.

M- Extremely creamy and smooth. The minimal carb is not an issue at all, as I feel like you are a few levels short of a brownie blizzard. This brew leaves a very nice glaze around the mouth well after puttin her down the gullet.

O- Top 5 BA stout that I have ever had. Exceptional in all areas.
