look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A - pitch black. Great look, nice head.
S - Pretty complex smells. Coffee, tar, leather. Potent.
T - Very boozy. The first time I had it, it seemed warm. The second time, it was overly strong in alcohol. Almost hard to get down.
M - Nothing wrong here. A good feel.
O - A good beer, albeit too powerful in the booze. Probably would be better aged.
Serving type: on-tap

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a finger high dense tan head that has very good retention properties and hardly died down and also left lots of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of chocolate and dark malts along with hints of bourbon in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the bourbon flavors become stronger as the beer warms up and contribute flavors of oak and vanilla. The bourbon isn't that strong overall, but stands out because the underlying beer isn't that heavy-bodied.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth and thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer feels like it could have used a fuller body to help support the bourbon barrel aging.

This beer pours a little thinner than what i come to expect from an imperial stout beer pours brownish in color settles black in the glass with brown around the edges of the glass. Beer has a very strong bourbon smell(but not in a bad way)with hint of chocolate and touch of coffee. Taste really follows the nose on this one strong bourbon taste with slight chocolate and coffee note. Over all i really enjoyed this beer especially considering in the past i really haven't enjoyed bourbon aged stouts i would really recommend this one.
