Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 13F). AROMA: very complex cocoa, coffe and bourbon barrel aromas. medium alcohol aroma. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: opaque jet black with a very tanned head. medium head retention. TASTE: complex flavour with cocoa very present, slight dried grapes flavour, coffe and bourbon. medium hop flavour that lingers towards the end accompanied with rostiness, bitterness and slight warming character. balanced malt flavour with medium-high bitterness. PALATE: very-full body with a velvety texture. gentle warmth from alcohol. medium carbonation. OVERALL: a very complex, special, imperial stout with a plethora of flavours, maybe a bit sweet from the added cocoa but nonetheless highly recommended.

Solid BA Stout that is readily available. Love the richness and slightly sweet Bourbon character.

Double Barrel? I don't see that anywhere on here, and I don't see a bourbon barrel on here to review. Cork smells of deep rich bourbon

A- Pretty dark for a smaller brewery bourbon stout. Not too thin. Thin ring of lacing no legs.

S- Oak, malts, nice base RIS characteristics. Not much bourbon, but more oak.

T- Oak barrel RIS, with some bourbon sting; not too high on that though. Very nice malt profile. So rich and creamy.

M- Very rich and creamy; the M is medium to medium thick

O- A well done barrel RIS here!

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: ink black with thin tan head,

Aroma: very faint roastiness and a little bourbon bite

Taste: very smooth, surprisingly easy drinkability, roasty, with a hint of chocolate and sweetness on the finish, a little bourbon molasses flavor.

Mouthfeel: feel almost medium bodied it's so smooth and drinkable, but the ABV is definitely full
Bodied. Very smooth and velvety

Overall: Solid but not earth shattering. Good roastiness and chocolate hints with a little bourbon molasses character.
