Poured into a HF fest glass 9/26/13.
A- Pours pitch black with a dense brown to mocha head about a half inch thick. Some alcohol legs present and good retention as well as lacing. Falls to a ring with several large foam islands over the period of several minutes.
S- Creamy decadent vanilla mixed in with a bourbon bite. Coffee, chocolate, roast malt, some alcohol and oak at the end.
T- Not as bourbon forward as the nose. Chocolate and Roast malts are fairly balanced, a touch of vanilla and bourbon with a big bite of astringent oak and bitterness at the end. Smells much better than it tastes.
M- Thick, chewy, spot on carbonation sitting on the lower end of things. Medium-High Body. The astringency at the back end detracts, but overall this feels delightful.
O- Solid barrel-aged delight from Hill Farmstead. Wish I had a bunch more!

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.
