Snagged a bottle of this for 5 bucks at the local House of 1,000 beers. Into a pint glass.

A - BB Insidious pours a very deep black opaque color with just a 1/4 inch of mocha head that pulls back to a moderate lace ring. Just like the regular Insidious it is a bit thin for an Imperial stout Medium bodied at most.
S - Well I was pleasantly surprised but the aroma black fruit currants, mocha and chocolate, mild roasts, and a decent dose of vanilla and soft bourbon. Nice.
T - Well it's good not too deep with the bourbon tones which was nice. More sweet than I expected vanilla and dark chocolate highlighting. Very balanced flavors.
M - Well I didn't go in expecting a thick Imperial or high octane bourbon so with a medium bodied chewy Imperial this met its mark.

Overall a very tasty easy going bourbon barrel aged stout. If it's still at the house I may grab another bottle well with the 5 dollar price tag.

poured from a 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Snifter in the sink. No bottled dating could be found

Poured jet black with a caramel colored 1-2 fingered head. This thinned out to a covering quite quickly.

Smell was amazing. Reminded me of Thirsty Dog's Wulver. Vanilla, dried fruits, bourbon. Very appetizing.

Taste was also excellent. All the above flavors came through. A very enjoyable drink to finish off the evening.

Mouth was a bit of a letdown. Though I certainly enjoyed rolling the beer around my tongue, the beer was a bit on the thin side, and did not get that comforting alcohol soft burn feeling that I get with the better BBA stouts.

Overall, I can certainly recommend this beer. Not the best BBA stout out there, but certainly very enjoyable.
