A-Black in the glass, two finger brown head and some lacing.
S-Good deal of bourbon, nice chocolate. roasted malt and slight coffee.
T-Very bourbon heavy, nice chocolate and roasted malt as well. Tad bit of vanilla and coffee.
M-Medium bodied and nice carbonation.
O-A middle of the road Eclipse variant. The bourbon really shined through. I was shocked such a bad bourbon made a good beer.

Bottle 1432 of 2010
Appearance: Pours fudge brown with just a hint of bubbly froth; a few spots of lacing
Smell: Vanilla, chocolate and marshmallow underpinned by oaky Bourbon tones
Taste: A hint of roast and we are off into a marshmallow and vanilla world of sweet flavor; boozy harshness picks up, in the mid-palate, with oaky Bourbon tones adding a slightly harsh character; the marshmallow and vanilla sweetness returns to linger in the finish though the Bourbon lingers, too
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation
Overall: A fine beer but this one didn't meet the expectations I had for it; a bit too sweet and a bit too thin
Serving type: on-tap

Black Wax Top poured into a snifter. 2013 vintage - bottle run # 2.
A - heavy jet black with some mocha head that hangs around
S - lots of bourbon, oak, vanilla, some chocolate roast. Smells rather delicious.
T - more bourbon and vanilla but the whiskey is not overpowering. Reminds me of BCBS in a way but not over the top with the bourbon. There's some great marshmallow flavor in there along with some slight berries which really balance it out.
M - moderate with a fair amount of carb sting but not too bad and certainly not too hot on the alcohol either.
O - Great BA imperial stout. It has achieved the much sought after integral equilibrium of bourbon and stout.
