A - Pours a deep rich opaque black with a clear mahogany color around the edges. absolutely no head forms. Just a paper thin film of tan bubbles that goes around the rim of the glass.
S - The nose is dominated by the bourbon and imperial stout. The notes of cocoa nibs, freshly ground espresso, and warm gooey caramel being the most potent. The boozy caramel notes intertwine with the underlying fruity character of the brandy and barelywine. The sweet, juicy notes of raisins, dates, and berries come through more as it warms along with earthy hints of bourbon soaked oak.
T - smooth syrupy chocolate, Sweet caramel, and charred grains fight for attention on the front of the palate. More intense chocolate notes come out in the middle along with hints of dark and red fruit, along with hints of booze, caramel, and earthy oak. Finish is strong on caramel and chocolate.
M - full bodied with a milk shake sort of creaminess. carbonation is medium.
O - Excellent beer. Well balanced with just enough carbonation (yeah i referenced that). For an over 12% barrel aged beer it is exceptionally smooth and there is no fussel to speak of, just a pleasant hint of booze. It is expensive but i am glad I bought more of this. On a side note i do enjoy the bottle format for a beer of this style, I'd like to see more big beers in smaller bottles.
