500ml bottle poured into a HF stemmed glass.
A- Pours a pitch black with a thin layer of fairly thick, creamy, mocha brown head that slowly recedes to a thin layer leaving some spotty lacing along the sides of the glass. Appears to have decent carbonation that is fairly consistent.
S- Sweet bourbon (with barley any booze coming through) and light oak balanced perfectly with rich espresso, creamy dark chocolate, faint hints of roasted espresso beans. Awesome balance between the bourbon barrel and the coffee presence of the base beer. Fairly aromatic.
T- Sweet creamy dark chocolate with rich espresso, a touch of cream, and just a slight hint of bitterness all rounded out perfectly with sweet bourbon, vanilla, and a touch of oak. Finishes with smooth chocolate and a lingering lightly rich espresso presence. Overall not too sweet, perfectly balanced, very tasty, and easily one of the better tasting barrel-aged Imperial Stouts I've had.
M- Decently thick yet not overly thick and still maintaining a perfect velvety smooth finish. Just a hint of carbonation but perfect for the style. Incredibly drinkable without hardly any booze poking through.
O- All I can say is this is another fantastic beer from HF. From what I remember I enjoyed this slightly more then the Madeira version, although that one was fantastic as well. Easily on the same level as the other HF BA stouts/porters with this one containing a little bit more coffee but still has the same perfect barrel balance. I highly recommend trying this beer as it ranks among the top American Imperial Stouts in my opinion.

375ml bottle into tulip. Thanks for hooking it up, Kevin.
Pours black with almost no head. Caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, and brown sugar easily come through alongside hints of bourbon, coffee, and warm booze. Smooth and clean mouthfeel, thick body, fine carbonation. Goes down smooth, very drinkable and rich overall. Well done. Thanks again AutumnBeerLove!
