Great Barrel Aged Imperial Stout that's worth the higher price tag. Dark brown color with a toffee head. Chocolate, maple, oak, and a hint of vanilla bourbon aroma. Taste is similar to aroma but I got a little cherry and coffee flavor. Good beer for a special occasion, the abv. will catch up with you at 16.5% though!

On tap at the 6740 in Whittier. 4 oz pour.

Poured a dark black hue with the thinnest white head. No lacing. Had some legs on the way down the glass though.

Smell is dominated by booze. Boozy, oaky and vanilla make up the majority of the nose. Also some roasty toasted notes in there as well.

Taste is a smooth roasted goodness. Oak notes round out a long smooth vanilla finish. Booze is there but its not overly hot.

Mouthfeel is sticky and viscous and just coats the whole mouth. Booze is smooth and this beer is drinking great fresh. I wish I would have gotten some to put down.

I don't review many beers. It is rare that I have a beer that blows me away. I am an imperial Stout fanatic, having had well over 200 different ones it is not often that one truly blows me away with its complexity and intense flavors. This beer did.

When I first poured this beer I didn't know it was 16.5% otherwise I would have opened it with others. Dark chocolate, bourbon, warming pleasant alcohol are all noticeable on the noise and tongue. This beer has been put into my top 5 all time imperial stouts. Even though it is still young, all the flavors one desires are there.

The mouthfeel is very thick and elegant. Like smooth silk as it dances along the tongue. It warms the mouth and the throat and would make a great winter beer for a cold night with your loved one.

December 2012 #5065 of 5360

A: Pours a thick black color with a thin mocha colored head. Definitely shows some legs in the glass.

S: Smells amazing. Toasted oak, chocolate covered hazelnuts, rye, bourbon, powdered chocolate and some faint dark fruit. Hints of charred wood as well.

T: In the words of Marv Albert- Ohhh myyyy! This stuff is awesome. Rich chocolate and dark fruit flavors upfront with roasted malt, chocolate covered cherry and brownie batter. Hints of anise, bourbon and burnt cocoa on the finish. You can tell this is a strong beer as you're drinking it, but nothing near 16% shows here. Incredibly smooth.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This is based on the 2013 Vintage. Cork was removed by hand, and was poured into a snifter. There was about 0.5cm of head after a fairly quick pour (and no glass tipping). Temperature at opening was approximately 50 degrees, and the suggesting serving temp is 54. It warmed up to about 60 degrees during the tasting.

Poured as black as 10W-30. Strong smells included bourbon, toasted malts, vanilla, and chocolate. Reminded me of Bourbon County.

The initial taste followed the smell. Bourbon, black licorice, chocolate, vanilla, molasses, and coffee were strong. It was difficult to detect the maple syrup, but it was there. As it warmed up, the licorice became more apparent.

Very smooth - wonderful mouthfeel. Very creamy. At 13.8%, it's definitely a sipper. Overall, this is one of my favorite bourbon barrel aged imperial stouts. I highly recommend this one!

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.

A huge thanks to Todd for this bottle!
Bottle #3819/5360 from the 2012 Vintage.
Poured in to snifter.

A - Black with a thin layer of light brown head that immediately reduced to a thin ring around the edges of the glass.

S - A huge bourbon aroma up front with lots of charred oak and vanilla from the barrel treatment. Chocolate fudge and a hint of sweet molasses also come through in the nose.

T - A huge cocoa flavour hits the tongue first and immediately gives way to charred oak, bourbon and vanilla flavours from the barrel. Mid-palate adds roast, licorice and chocolate fudge with some sweet molasses in the finish. The ABV is warming throughout but very well hidden considering the ABV.

M - Full bodied. Thick and chewy. Light carbonation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at The Verdugo

A - totally black, with just a hint of choco brown head.

S - huuuuge bourbon that I can smell from two seats down. Yeah, there's some oak, vanilla, and sweetness underneath but damn that booze is strong. and awesome.

T - again, big bourbon up front, backed up by barrel flavors and some more subtle vanilla. It's big, it's powerful, it's awesome, but it didn't slay me. Based on the ABV I assumed it would be super hot, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I didn't get at all too much harsh alcohol taste/burn. It was all bourbon, barrels, vanilla, and sweetness with just enough heat to remind me that it's 16.5%.

M - This was one really interesting aspect of this beer. It was actually a whole lot thinner and lighter than I expected. In a good way. It made it a pleasure to return to the glass for another sip, and entirely too easy to drink. I actually had this next to a Lost Abbey Deliverance, and the Deliverance (though also excellent) felt like a milkshake next to this.

O - This is a really outstanding beer. The first few things I had from Hangar 24 were pretty underwhelming, but between this and the last couple times I've had their DIPA it seems like things might be moving in the right direction, which is great to see. Wish I could get my hands on a bottle of this, but not necessarily to age - it's drinking really well right now and I just want more.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass. Year 2013, December, Bottle 7255/8856.

Nice classic looking big imperial stout. Black walnut and very dark body color, a head of dark mocha espresso chocolate brown forms maybe a finger tall, but settles to a very dark same colored collar. Nice sheen top without being filmy and some nice legs compliment.

What an impressive nose on this. Big dark fruits on this sucker, dates raisins and figs, with a wonderful cigar smoke. Hints of charred oak, and cigar box cedar wood all over. Heat but not boozy. Chocolate angle somewhere between milk and dark. Just large and impressive, nearly perfection.

Palate is just surprisingly fruity and large in that respect. Good notes of charred wood, charcoal and smoke. Large fruit component that gets to plum/raisin and some juicy cherry quality. Warm kirsch almost sour cherries with big roast and schnapps controlled warmth that isn't gag inducing.. Carbonation is prickly but not distracting, but for a big barrel aged brew it comes off quite light but not watery. Some leafy chewy dried tobacco aftertaste to match also, but there's no real maple sweetness on this which honestly doesn't disappoint me.

Overall just a very impressive creation, and I love the bouquet on this beer immensely.

T- Wow! again tons of fudge, chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon.

M- Full body and medium carbonation. Has a syrupy feel.

A: black and viscous with a nice mocha head. Once the head subsided the beer displayed some nice legs after a little swirling in the glass.

S: Very rich bourbon, oak, bakers chocolate, roasted malts. The smell is quite intoxicating.. I could sit and smell this beer for a good 10 minutes and be quite happy.

T: Beer unfolds into some chocolate, tobacco, dark fruits. A very well balanced roast character. The bourbon and oak blending quite well into the beer. The beer is hot though not overwhelming, though for 16.5% and being recently released its to be expected.

M: mouth feel is thick and a little syrupy, but is broken up rather nicely with the carbonation.

O: This beer is just another amazing beer by hangar 24. This beer has great potential for aging even though it is already tasting amazing. I feel very lucky that i was able to purchase some bottles at the brewery!

Thanks to Rtaps for sharing one of his bottles
Pitch black with 1cm bubbly khaki head. Avg retention and Fairly spotty lacing. Fairly oily and viscous. Not as much as I thought it'd be though.  

Big nose. Rich dark fruit. Rum/bourbon soaked chocolate covered dark fruit. A bit boozy. Bourbon! A bit of orange peel. A touch of caramel and toffee. 

Huge range of flavor. Still young and boozy but great! Great chocolatey sweet brownie finish led by strong bourbony and vanilla notes, along with a little orange peel and toffee and bold rich coffee. 

Mouth is full bodied and rich. Medium Carbonation.

Overall its nice, bold and very complex. I like it now and know I'll love it Alot later! This is a monster that is going to be amazing with some age.

2013, bottle # 2059 of 8856
enjoyed from a hangar 24 snifter

a - brew poured a deep shiny black with an attractive dark tan head that dissolved leaving a thin skin of bubbles and some streaky lacing on the glass. great barrel shine.

s - nose is rich decadent chocolate with a maple glazing and some warmth and vanilla from the wood. bourbon is there adding to the decadence. smells great.

t - taste matches the nose...simply awesome. rich and decadent chocolate with a maple booze wash over the top.

m - lush and rich. full bodied, but not chewy. the 13.8% is there, but well hidden.

o - overall, this is a winner. one of the better barrel aged stouts i've had in a while. really rich and decadent and simply delicious. at first i was a bit concerned about taking this one to the dome, but it is just TOO tasty that now i'm glad i don't have to share :)

Tasted at the Hangar 24 Release, 12/10/11

A: This beer has a deep mahogany blackness with a great coating that clings to the edge of the glass with a khaki sheeting. Mild 1/2" head with mocha bubbles.

S: There's a nice toffee and oak to the nose, a deep caramel bourbon smell that isn't too hot or boozy, it reminds me of a milder Black Tuesday with more chocolate dryness.

T: There's a huge chocolate front to it, with a nice bakers cocoa dryness to the finish with a warm oakiness to the finish. Very fulfilling and maintains a sustained chocolate/vanilla finish.

M: This has a dry oaky finish that balances the sweetness of the chocolate amiably.

D: This has a big heat to it but is balanced nicely, I went back for 3 pours so, I can't really complain about its repeat value. The abv will likely integrate nicely over time but even fresh it is incredibly drinkable. This is not as firey as BT or fresh darklord and I can imagine this only getting better if laid down for time.

A - deep dark black with a hint of radish brown, one finger thick head and very sticky lacing

S - vanilla, bourbon, bourbon barrels, wood, chocolate, very nice alcohol, molasses, soil, toasted and roasted malts, very sweet, licorice and what seems to be a very nice very sweet yeast

T - bourbon barrels, chocolate, vanilla, earth, licorice, tons of malts (sweet, bitter and toasted!), very nice dried dark fruits, nice booze and awesome yeast

M - full bodied, low acidity, well balanced (minus the booze, but the booze is very nice), nice complexity and very long very sexy finish

D/O - very nice, very huge, great flavor, changes so nicely as it warms. It is good at 38 and 68. If you don't like booze or huge, stay away! Ha. For the bold of heart. I want to find one to age, one of my favorite high abv stouts!

Final thought - $20 is a huge price tag, but they are local and small. Plus the abv is huge and beautiful! Love this one and now this brewery

From the corked leftovers of Mr. Rode -- thanks man!

Appearance, smell, mouthfeel are all classic barrel aged stout. Nothing out of the ordinary. Small tan head appears and vanishes over time. Some nice bourbon lacing stays on the glass.
Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side, but not enough to distract--it's just the flavor is so powerfull and the beer itself is watery more than creamy.

Taste for me is a very high end, special barrel aged stout. Similar to the raisin and plum of a Dark Lord but with some of the smoky malt feel of an Older Viscosity. If you mixed the two, in theory, that is what I am tasting.
There was not a strong or hot presence from the alcohol, but a few sips and you know the ABV is there and starts altering your state of mind fairly quickly.

On tap it poured as dark as it gets with a minimal caramel colored head. Definitely leaves the alcohol legs.

Smells of sweet figs with that woody burnt caramel and tobacco mixed in. A touch of the oaky vanilla.

Taste first hits you as a buttery smokey vanilla note. It quickly changes to more of an almond leather and molassas character. A touch of the alcohol warms as it ends.

Mouthfeel is pretty dead on. It's not overly viscous but its still pretty round and creamy.

Overall I would definitely pick up a bottle had I the chance. A solid RIS, and at almost 16% its a big one. Does a decent job at hiding the abv, but remains a sipper you'll enjoy for a while.

750ml into a H24 Barrel Roll series snifter...

A - Pours black with a one finger light brown head that dissipates at a fairly hasty rate. Lacing is minimal...

S - chocolate, sweet malts, dark fruit, and alcohol...

T - Chocolate up front with caramel and molasses in the mix. A hint of plums come through with oak/vanilla and bourbon in the finish. Very tasty. Alcohol is pretty subdued considering the abv...

M - Drinks really smooth for a large beer. On the higher end of medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbontation...

O - H24 comes through with another huge offering, and it doesn't disappoint. Looking foward to visiting this one again with a little time on it...

Thanks to bman113vr for sharing this bottle at bu11zeye's 10,000th rating tasting.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is awesome. I get a ton of bourbon and raisins, as well as some chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is just as good, with a ton of barrel-aged character such as oak, whiskey, maple and vanilla. There is also a load of roasted malt and chocolate. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation. An excellent barrel-aged Russian imperial stout. Very glad I got to try this one.

Huge thanks to Sam (NoSignsOfPain) for busting this one out last night at the Jingle Bell Jubilee.

Bottle # 3266/3495.

Pours an opaque black with a 1/2 inch khaki head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace cling to the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, wood, and bourbon. The alcohol smell on this one is potent and validates the 16.5% ABV. Taste is the same as the smell with the bourbon being quite strong and warming the back of the throat. This beer has a nice carbonation level with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good RIS that I am very glad I was able to try. Yes, the bourbon is in your face and could stand to have some aging but I still loved this one right out of the gate.

This was a vintage 2012 bottle poured into a barrel roll snifter

Apprearence- deeeep dark thick with very little head

Smell- the smell of bourbon, vanilla, toffe, woody, cacao blended together was fantastic.( i might have enjoyed the smell more if i had not came off a BCBCS, so much coffee)

Taste- this has mellowed down alot since i last has 12' good bourbon presence and sweetness, lots of barrel characteristics, maple, chocholate, and subtle vanilla notes, the balance was well done in this bottle!! mild heat but expected for almost 16% abv.. just enough heat IMO!

Mouthfeel- this is were i loved this beer, low carb but sliky smooth feel, sticky on the lips and glass leaving a sweetness behind. this is how i love BA beers.. thick, sticky, silkysmooth!

Overall- pugachevs is always a crowd pleaser! its a bigggg beer that you MUST share. enjoy the feel and the aromas and expect some heat if your sensitive to high abv. this wakes you up before it puts you down!

Substantially dark imperial stout - pour is very dark brown, black some light showing though. Very minimal head - clean - like reflective oil.

Very nice aromatics of very fine dark chocolate, roast, char, anise, bourbon-whiskey burn/tingle, wet barrel vanilla. Does not punch you in the face, great nuances.

Very dark - roast, char, burnt espresso, bitter dark chocolate, whiskey. Prominent notes of oaky vanilla, lingering bourbon sweetness burn, some ash. Very dry and bitter. Feels good - medium-full body, soft carbonation.

Outstanding barrel aged stout. This is great - very bold, bitter, and dry, yet very rich. The maple syrup serves more as a binding ingredient then a flavor - faint hints of it but can tell it is blending different flavors together. Lacks viscosity, otherwise outstanding.

This is a big beer for those cold winter nights. Pours a thick, viscous black with a big boozy aroma that’s apparent even at an arm’s distance. I pick up stone fruit, dark chocolate, and a rich thick heavy booze note. It’s a stout stout whose strong aroma is balanced by its intense flavors. Like liquid chocolate (dark chocolate), with a rounded roasty smoothness and a warming sweetness. The alcohol is noticeable, not that it tries to hide, with a insanely strong chocolaty-coffee-roasty flavor. A beast of a beer but easily tamed one sip at a time.
