A- black with a thin brown head. A ring of brown lacing remains around the glass.
S- honey, candy sugar, molasses, coffee, bourbon
T- lots of coffee, sweet bourbon, chocolate, very well blended.
M- super silky smooth with a bite of alcohol on the finish that fades as the beer warms.
O- a dangerously smooth and drinkable barrel aged imperial stout. It is a wonderful blend of coffee, chocolate, and bourbon.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Jet black. Inky with a small mocha head. A few islands and a medium collar.

Smell - And there's a ton of bourbon. Sweet, vanilla bourbon. Coffee comes through behind it all as well as some chocolate. But holy hell it's a lot of bourbon.

Taste - Still just a bucket of bourbon. Quite sweet. Deep roasted malts offer a slight counterpoint. The coffee is faint here, but there's a little bit of acidity from it. Chocolate malts throughout, but it's always sweet. A bit of smoke in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Thick and sweet. Heavy with medium carbonation.

Overall - This is nothing like I remember the Madeira version. Nowhere near as harsh. The sweetness can't possibly be from just the bourbon barrels.

Deep black hue with a touch of radiance this created a light brown head that collared with considerable thickness.

The aroma has a ton of coconut, sweet vanilla, butterscotch, malts, oak wood and the tell tale scent of bourbon.

The flavor is a bit thin, as if the base beer was weak and so the barrel takes overs. The oak, wood and bourbon lead the way. The flavor is creamy with a stiff coconut and vanilla finish.

The feel is thick on the tongue, creamy and smooth but then appears thin at the back of the throat.

I must plead ignorance to what Hill Farmstead used in the barrel but I'd guess it doesn't matter as the barrel was showcased.
