2014 vintage. Poured into a wine glass. Absolutely incredible. lots of dates, raisins chocolate, bourbon, charred oak and sweet molassas in the nose. the taste is true to the nose. Bourbon chocolate and sweet raisins. it's a sweet beer but not overly sweet. this absolutely blew me away. i can not smell or taste the alcohol for the 19.7%. I would have to say this is the best bourbon barrel aged imperial stout I have ever had.

One of the best BBA stouts I have ever had. Poured black and smelled like bourbon. Flavor was rich with a bourbon finish
