500ml bottle. 2014 release. Poured into a snifter 11/1/2014.

A- Dark black body, half finger mocha-brown head with a nice, lasting retention. Keeps a medium-density collar on for quite a while. [4.25]

S- Coffee, bourbon, oak, vanilla, some coconut, milk chocolate. The coffee is playing nicely with the sweet base beer and the barrels, not too dominant. Very nice balance of coffee and sweet milk chocolate here. [4.5]

F- Coffee comes forward more strongly on the taste. Bitter espresso, slightly charred malt sweetness, oak, vanilla. Less coconut than in the nose. Plenty of milk chocolate to go around. Nice balance, a bit hot on the finish. [4.5]

M- Thinner end of the medium body category. A bit thinner than I remember 2013 Espresso IRS to be. Lower in carbonation as expected. Drinking a bit hot. [4]

O- Great coffee flavours that are playing well with an already excellent base stout and the bourbon barrel aging process. My only real detraction is the body which is a bit thin, but this is otherwise a very tasty imperial stout. [4.5]
