375 ml bottle into snifter, vintage 2013A bottling. Pours dense pitch black color with a small fairly dense tan head with poor retention, that reduces to a ring of lacing fairly quickly. Some slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, raisin, prune, caramel, toast, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, and roast/oak earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, raisin, prune, and roast/oak earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness/spicy alcohol on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, caramel, toast, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, and roast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; with an awesome malt/barrel balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome barrel aged imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

2013 vintage poured from bottle
Jet black, thin creamy head. Significant bourbon presence plus vanilla, toffee, molasses. Creamy through and through. Pretty boozy and very vanilla intensive almost to this beer's detriment(almost, not quite). A tiny bit of coffee bitterness on the end? Somewhat thick but not chewy.
