3.28/5  rDev -13%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a pitch color, with a foamy, dark tan head, lots of lacing
S: little bit of roasty, little but of barrel. Not as potent as I had suspected
T: Massive bourbon barrel flavor. Kind of too much. There are hints of vanilla, but the oak really shines. Not to much of the standard imperial stout flavors really, as it is overpowered by the bourbon flavor
M: Syrupy, but not in a bad way. there are various hints of flavor, but the bourbon mutes much of it
O: This is an interesting brew, the positives generally outweighs the negatives

4.4/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Rich thick chocolate. Vanilla. Bourbon is present, but not encompassing. Really enticing and well-balanced.

Appearance: Pitch black. No head. Minimal lacy.

Taste: Rich vanilla first, then hints of bourbon. Gives way to oak and dark chocolate. Finishes semi-dry. The 9% abv is well hidden.

Overall: This beer is great! Rich and flavorful and incredibly well balanced.
