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.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black. Nice mocha head. Thin collar.

Smell - Not a ton of bourbon, but it's got a bright whiskey aroma. Vanilla. Sharp whiskey. Dark chocolate.

Taste - Dark chocolate and fudge. Sweet. Caramel. Sharp whiskey. Astringent oak. Nutty odd oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - I expected to like this better, but it's not any better than the Apple Brandy. I don't love the barrel again, but it's a good base stout.

Bottle shared by me at Bob's tasting.

Pours a dark, ink-like black, with a half inch mocha head, and only a small amount of lacing down the glass.

Smells like vanilla, coconut, chocolate fudge, and bourbon.

The taste is similar. Very sweet, with sweet smooth bourbon, some vanilla, a little bit of coconut, and decadent chocolate flavors- tastes like fudge and brownie batter. Some roasted malt flavors are there, but the bitterness from that is washed away by how sweet it is. Stops just short of being cloying, though.

Medium bodied, could be a little thicker, I think. Almost no carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

Westbrook continues to wow me, I can't wait to try the apple brandy version.
