Notes/Commercial Description:
Damon (1993-2004) The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually: memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance. Damon was our brother – devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this Imperial Stout in bourbon barrels from our favorite distillery. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey – of his loyalty and his love.

Aged in Blanton's bourbon barrels.

Pours black, with a lot of mocha swirls, and bubbles around the glass. Heads goes away fast but leaves some nice lacing. Smell isn't are strong as I would have thought. Chocolate, bourbon, some coffee. Taste is sweet bourbon right up front. Hints of toffee, black licorice, sweet molasses, on the backend but mostly the bourbon is over powering. I do wish it weren't so sweet. Mouthfeel is sticky, fairly easy to drink. Decent bourbon stout but awfully sweet.
