Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is as hairy as a Siberian.. or as a panther. And you better believe it because it gets the black magic from sitting for two years in bourbon barrels. During those years it gathered its rage.. a rage this mythical beast of an imperial stout wants to unleash on your taste buds.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled on 2/6/14.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, bourbon, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but the bourbon seems a bit subdued in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

A: Black with a really nice finger thick dark brown head

S: No explosion of aroma here, but whats there is good - lots of bourbon and chocolate

T: The lack of explosion in aroma is made by an explosion in taste. You get a lot of flavor the instant it touches your mouth. Huge dark chocolate, bourbon and oak.

M: Ultra mega thick. The mouthfeel of a 15% stout without the extra booze. I love it!

O: I drank this one first expecting the Apple Brandy version to beat it out. I was surprised to find that the bourbon is at least as good if not better.
