4.51/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750 ml bottle poured into 10 ounce Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout snifter.

A: Pours pitch black with a brown head. Pour appears a bit thin relative to other bourbon barrel stouts. Musters a 1 finger head, which is impressive for a beer of this alcohol. However, there is a somewhat cola-like quality to the foam. A bit odd.

S: Smells awesome. Waves of bourbon, melted milk chocolate, and vanilla. As it warms a bit and opens up, the chocolate really starts to showcase itself and some caramel and brown sugar make an appearance.

T: Really nice beer. Not an overpowering bourbon presence, but enough to let you know this spent some time in a barrel. Sweet milk chocolate is prevalent in the flavor like it is in the nose. Molasses, vanilla, some brown sugar qualities, and to be honest, the bourbon is asserting itself a bit more as this one sits for some time. Alcohol warmth is apparent in the throat. A pretty nice level of sweetness for my personal tastes.

M: Mild carbonation. There is a sticky, silky, coating character that I really like. If I could critique any aspect of the beer, it is that I would prefer a slightly thicker mouthfeel, but this isn't thin by any means.

O: I really like this beer. I didn't have incredibly high expectations, although I certainly was looking forward to this one. My expectations were easily exceeded and I will be looking to acquire additional bottles when I have the chance.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

2013 vintage.

Pours opaque black. The 1/4 inch tan head quickly disappears completely and leaves faint spotty lace.

The smell is of bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate, graham crackers and pipe tobacco.

The taste is of sweet bourbon, molasses, dark chocolate and dark stone fruit.

The texture is heavy bodied and slightly oily with low carbonation.

This is a solid example of a barrel aged imperial stout. Not quite on the upper plain of heavy hitting barrel aged stouts but, certainly nipping at their heels. Lacking in the coffee presence of most imperial stouts.
