I acquired 3 bottles of this and will be playing with aging them and re-reviewing accordingly.

after aging 3 months:
A- the woods are lovely, dark, and deep and so is this beer. Pours a thin mocha head that dissipates to a ring around the glass leaving a small bit of lacing
S- you get those coffee and chocolate notes from an imperial stout, but the bourbon definitely is not bashful.
T- if I could have a birthday cake, I would want it to taste exactly like this, very thick roasted malt and coffee, a hint of chocolate, and that wonderful woody bourbon sensation
M- creamy, rich chocolate and coffee, lingering bourbon aftertaste
O- If only it were a 750mL bottle instead of 500...

after aging 5 months:
A- lot more lacing, head is a bit heartier
S- bourbon has mellowed out and you pick up more chocolate notes
T- still just as wonderful
M- still just as wonderful
O- split the bottle with my dad and it was so good that I no longer cared that it was only a 500mL
