Bottled 11/18/14. Pours jet black with khaki head. Chocolate, toasted malt, and the bourbon. Taste ramps up the intensity even further and vanilla and oak Mae an appearance. Very smooth, velvety and wet mouthfeel. Bold awesomeness.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Jet black in color. Two fingers of brown head eventually recede into a thin cap. Thin and delicate rings of lacing.

S: Fudge, brownie batter, chocolate sauce, roasted barley, coffee beans, touch of smoke. Plum and black currant fruitiness. Notes brown sugar and dark caramels. The barrel contribution is at first more subtle on the nose, with docile whiffs of toasted oak and subdued barrel char and bourbon. However, as it warms the sweet and caramelly bourbon character asserts itself more. Take your time with the nose. The layered complexities take a while to sift through.

T: Chocolate sauce, brownie batter, chocolate covered espresso beans, mocha. Flavors of deeply roasted malt blanket everything. Kiss of roasty smoke. Plum and currant fruitiness. Dark caramel chews. The barrel is more apparent in taste, with the back end bringing toasty oak and a tide of sweet bourbon that slowly takes center stage. Sweet bourbon flavors dominate the finish, with notes of roast and chocolate sauce riding its coattails.

M: Thick in body, but not too heavy. Slick and viscous in the mouth. It coats but isn't sticky, and it has heft and substance without being too weighty. Little carbonation, but it isn't needed. Warming.

O: These must've been some wet bourbon barrels, because the bourbon liquid itself puts its stamp all over this beer. But the base beer is strong and independent enough to allow the barrel to have its romp without losing any of its integrity. There's a lot to digest here, and if you're a fan of bourbon barrel aged imperial stouts you'll want to prolong and savor every second.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottle date 11/18/14

A: Pours black in color with a little over 1 finger of khaki head that reduces slowly to a thin collar. Viscosity seems to match way I would expect for 10.5%, not too thick, but plenty of body.
S: Big chocolate and bourbon notes, with a nice roast aroma to compliment.
T: Like aroma, big on chocolate and bourbon. Very smooth for a big beer.
M: Carbed well, leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste.
O: This is a very well crafted barrel aged stout. The flavors come together really well.

Tan head but a bit thin. Nearly black color with no light to pass.

Creamy, chalky semi-sweet chocolate aroma. A bit of band-aide too.

Starts off quite mildly, but the swallow brings on some burnt grains. Plenty of alcohol in the swallow with a bit of dark cherry to the aftertaste.

Bottled 11/18/14.

A: Pours pitch black with a tall, dense dark brown head. Fades fairly quickly with very little retention and basically no lacing.

S: Oh yeah. Lots of bourbon up front that lends a big toasted coconut aroma. Lots of chocolate and a sharp roasted malt character. Some toasted sugar when swirled, almost marshmallow-like at times.

T: Yup, lots of nice bourbon up front. Not the typical heavy caramel but more of that toasted coconut with lots of oak. Tons of decadent chocolate in the middle mixing with some espresso, almost mocha-like. Sharp roasted malt character is great but not overpowering. Mild dark fruits in there too. Great complexity. Lingering mocha in the aftertaste with hints of toasted sugars.

M: Thick, heavy, viscous but plenty smooth.

O: Excellent stout from CBC. Bourbon cuts and balances this nicely. Great chocolate and espresso flavors along with the toasted coconut from the bourbon. Well balanced, surprisingly smooth, very drinkable and super tasty. Excellent job, CBC.
