4.83/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from the bomber into a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark, dark brown with a dark tan head that recedes into nice ring. Little lacing.

S: Strong aromas of bourbon, brown sugar and chocolate, the peppers coming in slightly.

T: Like drinking brown sugar. Good and sweet with the bourbon and peppers hanging out in the background. Really mellows as it warms, staying sweet.

M: Smooth with medium carb. Coats the palate with a suttle 10% ABV.

O: Great base beer aged forever in JD barrels = this damn fine brew. 10/10 will drink again!

Three bottle set most generously sent by cparles in a recent box. Thanks for these man. They were top class!

From a bomber into a snifter
Bottled 6 June 2013
Drank the red wine first, then this, and finally the apple brandy.
This one says "bourbon" on the label, though JD is a technically a whisky.

APPEARANCE: Pours out black and yields a two finger, medium looking, fizzy, dark tan head with good retention. Black body with higher levels of carbonation evident for the style. A thick ring with touches of wisp remain until the end of the glass leaving some sticky dots of lacing down the sides of the glass. These all basically look the same, but this one was not as loud and fizzy as the Red Wine variant.

SMELL: Nice here too. Whisky, oak, caramel and toffee with vanilla notes on the nose. Dark chocolate, cinnamon and light notes of chilies as well. Some oak and coconut from the barrels as well. Bold and wonderful, tough not quite as mind blowing as the red wine.

TASTE: Oak, caramel and toffee with some whisky barrel up front. Vanilla and cinnamon though the middle with a bit of a chili burn at the swallow. Milder but lingering finish of sweet coconut, whisky, oak, vanilla sweetness, spicy cinnamon and bitter dark chocolate as well. All the elements are there, bold and well balanced, with a bit of a chili burn lingering as well. Great stuff.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. A touch lighter than the red wine variant, but still very creamy on the palate, goes down smooth with a chili bite at the swallow and finishes sticky. Some chili heat lingers.

OVERALL: Another wonderful beer. They're all a bit too chili heavy for me, but who am I? Equally good as the others, though the nose is perhaps not quite as boggling. That is a minor issue, however, as this is still in the top 5% of imperial stouts out there, as is this entire series for that matter. While I put the red wine variant first, it's a toss up between this and the apple brandy. I would jump at the chance to drink any of these again. Thanks again cparles. Phenomenal.
