Pours a pitch black with tan head that retains nicely. The aroma has many layers starting with chocolate an pecans. I'm surprised by the presence of pecan, yes it's on the label but its not too often that nuts come through so strongly. The end is very boozy smelling with a bit of nose hair cinging booze. Taste is chocolatey with notes of vanilla and pecan. Rye adds some spicy qualities and melds with some heat that I picked up on the nose. Mouthfeel isn't as heavy as I would hope, mild carbonation. Overall, very tasty, some time would probably benefit this beer.

3.29/5  rDev -19.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Leggy, viscous pitch black. High sugar content is apparent, though the head retains fairly well.

Smell: Plenty sweet. Pecan is blatant, and there's a decent bourbon undertone along with a touch of oaky vanilla. Lots of molasses and burnt sugars, without much roastiness. Black licorice comes out more as the beer warms, reminding me of Stone's IRS. Pecan is an odd addition that doesn't quite work; it lends a bit of staleness as the beer warms.

Palate: Chewy, sugary, a bit astringent. Has a tannic and bitter pecan skin bite to it. Alcohol isn't tasted so much as it's felt. This does hide the booze well, behind layers of sweetness. Caramel, molasses and a slightly stale pecan note are the dominant flavors. There isn't much in the way of roasted malt, though it does finish decently bitter, in more of an astringent, tannic way.

Overall: I find myself liking this beer quite a bit until the finish, when the pecans take on a lingering rancid note and the astringency of the alcohol and grains begin to wear down the palate. At the same time, I really can't see this beer improving with age.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Blacker than the black holes of Star Trek. Head had a dark tan tone resembling a roasted marshmallow.
S: Chocolate fudge, vanilla, bourbon, and a little soy sauce.
T: First thing, surprisingly, was the bourbon. The chocolate and vanilla came later on the palate. I also like how there's heat, but not like a burn. It's just really warm and you know it's there.
M: Very full body and it coats your mouth, too. Almost no carbonation. A bit oily, but it leaves quickly. The heat kind of sticks around and leaves your mouth a bit tingly.
O: A great beer. I'm definitely going to get more and can't wait to try it on tap soon.

3.78/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Full opaque black in color. Visibly viscous as it pours from the bottle. Forms a fairly large, dark tan colored head. Decent retention, but very little lacing.

S: When I first popped this one open, I got huge aromas of cocoa, chocolate, and fudge, with some notes of coconut and some trace bourbon notes. But as this one warmed, the aroma changed to fairly strong notes of soy sauce and tamari.

T: Taste was much like the aroma. When cold, the beer tastes strongly of cocoa and chocolate with a slight note of charred malts. Mildly sweet with some anise notes and bit of bourbon. But as the beer warms, it becomes like drinking a sweetened soy sauce mixture, to the point where the alcoholic spice mimics the wasabi.

M: Full bodied. Thick, chewy and somewhat chalky. Lower carbonation. Mild bitterness and what bitterness is there seems to come more from the roasted malts then hops.

O: An interesting beer. Complex and flavorful, but the soy sauce tastes could be overwhelming. Not necessarily bad, but my taste buds just seemed to want to focus on that flavor.

Bomber poured into a Snifter. Bottled on 06/25/13

A: Black with some bourbon coloring on the very edges. You have to really try hard to see any light through this brew. The head is a lighter brown color. Not too much retention on the head. Hard to knock too much on appearance when dealing with IS, unless you don't like the color black.

S: Picking up bananas, chocolate, a hint of barrel, coconut, and a hint of bourbon. This is a fantastic smelling brew.

T: Get more bourbon barrel and chocolate. Nice burn, nothing anywhere close to "boozy" but a very nice burn to complement the bourbon and chocolate.

M: Nice silky/oily feel. Not too heavy that you feel like you are chewing on it, but enough to remind you what you are drinking.

O: I find this to be a very enjoyable Bourbon barreled IS. Kind of fits right in between your heavy hitters BCBS and something like Dragons Milk. Probably one of the most drinkable of its style that I have had. Good stuff from Stone as always
