look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a large tulip glass. Apears dark blak with tan head. Smells of chocolate with some oak tannins and vanilla. Tastes full bodied chocolate & vanilla upfront with some light bourbon & oak in the background. A little astringency seems noticeable, maybe from too much bittering hops. Mouthfeel seems heavy, especially as it warms. Bourbon character cones through more and body seems more full. Overall, a good beer. Wish it had some more initial oomph.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured at cellar temperature into a snifter.
A - Pours a dark brown color with minimal medium brown head. The head is gone almost instantly, leaving a long lasting lacing.
S - Bourbon, chocolate and a sour hop finish.
T - Bourbon, charred wood, chocolate and a hoppy finish.
M - Medium viscosity with a small amount of carbonation.
O - The smoke is a little on the heavy side, the bourbon is light and the alcohol is well integrated. All and all not bad if you like smoked beers. OK for a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a motor oil black with a one-finger tan head. Very light lacing.

S - Smells of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Bourbon dominates throughout.

T - Follows the nose. Heavy bourbon and chocolate upfront. Some light vanilla in the mid swallow. Finish is hot bourbon.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Dry finish.

O - Above average RIS. The bourbon dominates the smell and flavor. A nice winter sipper.
