4.5/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into Block 15 Tulip @ Block 15 1 day after release

A - Pours an opaque black w/ 1 finger brown head that fades to a thick cap, leaves great lacing, mesmerizing brew.

S - Smells of chocolate, vanilla, coconut, cherries, coffee, oak, caramel.

T - Taste follows the nose, bitter chocolate, vanilla, coffee, cherries, oak, toffee, apples

M - Big, rich, full body, sweet but not cloying, spicy finish that is quite warming, but not at all hot, slightly bitter in the end

O - Very well done. Rich & complex, bourbon and imp stout very balanced, neither one out does the other, too drinkable, wish they still had bottles to take home and age.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

Pour is jet black with no head at all. Nose is wood, bourbon, cocoa, hint of licorice, black olive. Body is a bit thin especially in the finish, fairly rich malt and cocoa with a decent bit of bourbon. Back has a lot of charred malt and wood and gets a bit acrid. Flavor is much thinner than I thought and body hurts it there as well. Finish is also quite sweet and seems to have a good bit of sugar left over.

Serving type: bottle
