3.68/5 rDev -6.1%
A-Pours reasonably black. Brown edging. Nearly zero head.
S-The bourbon is very subtle. The overall nose isn't too intense either. Sweet without too much individuality to the aroma. Dark molasses and brown sugar. Lighter notes of roast. Sweet dark fruits.
T-Again the bourbon is very tame; too tame in my opinion. More of the same here. Dark fruit, molasses, scorched brown sugar particles. Light roast coffee and maybe a bit of chocolate.
M-Nearly cloying. Booze pops up but it doesn't really detract too much. Full bodied but it has a watery element to it; it thins out as it disperses throughout my mouth.
O/D-Not their best. Just a simple barrel addition doesn't always make a beer better.

This was one my first barrel aged imperial stout and it was a good starter. Everything from the appearance to the feel was typical for a RIS, but that bourbon really came through nicely on the nose and palate. The alcohol, as a result, was a little more prevalent than I may have liked in spite of the wonderful extras the bourbon brings otherwise. If you see it on tap anywhere, it's worth a go!

Served on tap at Lagunitas on 6/12/2011 (going through older notes).
A: Black, with small off-white head.
S: Fruity, oaky, sweet/malty/syrupy; you know you're in for something complex and interesting; "evolved" roastiness.
T: Sweet and oaky, sugary/caramely; chocolate lingers win aftertaste; some black currant in lieu of roastiness; not a lot of acidity or any bitterness; couldn't quite call it roasty or toasty.
M: Thick, syrupy, very full bodied
O: Good stuff; complex and very interesting; thick, full bodied, and full o' flavor; can't drink quickly or in large amounts.
