No bottling date but released in the last few weeks.
A: Pitch black pour with a small but very dense dark brown head. Despite the smallish head it refuses to die and sticks around forever. Great retention. Lacing is heavy, heavy but doesn't stick too well.
S: Oh yeah, mellow and smooth caramel. Lots of it. Thick, heavy fudge. Spiciness, must be rye whiskey. Hints of oak. Aroma isn't particularly strong or bold in anyway (low carbonation) but it sure is decadent.
T: Heavy, heavy, heavy bourbon up front with the thickest, most viscous chocolate ever. It's like drinking hot fudge out of the fridge, dipped in bourbon and rye whiskey. Lots of heavy caramel, spicy rye and loads of oak in the middle. Very sweet, very heavy flavors. Aftertaste coats the mouth like a chocolate oil slick with plenty of oak and a little rye spiciness mixed in. Oak seems to linger forever. Sweetness and heaviness hides the alcohol but there is just a hint of alcohol sting after each sip.
M: Incredible mouthfeel. Super heavy body, low carbonation. Thick, thick, thick. Honestly just a step away from room temp hershey's syrup. Or brownie batter. You get the idea. Weighty.
O: Interesting. I'm a big fan of Evil Twin stouts and this one does not disappoint. Great balancing act between the two whiskeys. Lots of chocolate to even it out a bit. Big, decadent and sweet flavors throughout. Mouthfeel is top notch, heavy heavy heavy. Wonderful but the strength, sweetness and thickness does make this one a serious sipper. Even after everything I've said, I think the base beer is still phenomenal and I have it rated ever so slightly higher.

This is one of those beers that makes you raise your hands and say amen.
Appearance: dark opaque brown, nice head. This beer is thick.
The nose is strong, smoky, and bold but soft milky chocolate.
Taste/ mouthfeel: Oh man, it's a strange and subtle marriage of an almost bbq-like smokiness with the taste and texture of chocolate souffle--WOW! It is silky smooth.
This is a fantastic beer. It is one of those drinks that I had a half glass of and I was satisfied. That's not to say that it's one of those beers I can only drink a half glass of because I could have drank a lot more. But I was so satisfied and so impressed--so privileged, really, to have had that beer that we gave the last half of the bottle to the people next to us.

Pours thick as 40 weight motor oil, black with 2+ fingers of light brown head. Pretty good head retention & lacing, nice viscosity to this, stays effervescent
S: Much plum, black currants, leafy hops & carob, some oakyness, faint boozey notes
T: Plum, slight coffee notes, a bit of booze, raisins & baker's chocolate up front. Some caramel mixes in along a trace amount of molasses, then raisins, plums & oaky dryness, slight pruneyness. Finishes dry, boozey, with plums, carob & a bit of figgyness
MF: Firm carbonation, warming, medium bodied, smooths out a bit once warm, turns sticky
A big bruiser, but no real flaws, wished the Bourbon Barrel would've came through a bit more. Not bad, but was expecting more... Well worth a go if your wallet can stand it...

Had this beer along with the Even More Jesus (right before it) in a mini horizontal.
Poured from glass into Tulip.
A-Dark as all hell just like EMJ. Slightly less of a head maybe 1/4in., same color, dark brown sugar. Head faded quicker like expected but the ring stayed thruout. Slight lacing but not as nice as EMJ but more legs than EMJ.
S-Holy mother of God. The bourbon barrel hits you immediately and soaks in for a while. A second sniff shows a glimmer of the base beer with fudge brownie and dark bitter chocolate being prominent. A spicy whiskey smell along with subtle notes of vanilla, cherry, wood and spice. Dark fruits, molasses. Dont get a real coffee smell as with the EMJ
T-Just like the smell that sweet, sweet bourbon is in front of the pack. Big hit of double fudge brownie (me and my friend were burping up double fudge brownies all night) Rye whiskey tang to it and the base beer comes back to life and you get the standard tastes of an imperial stout. More Boozier than EMJ but thats obvious. The boozieness was still in good form and complemented the base beer.
M-Smooth but lighter than EMJ, lighter carbonation, still sticky as hell.
O-Biggest question.... is it worth $25+? Thats up to you. I personally would pay the $25+ tag if I had the chance. Its a delisious beer. Better than the base beer but not the best I've ever had bit I promise you its up there. Its a damn good beer to split with a friend.
