Look: opaque jet black with a minimal mocha head that just rims the glass. Quite and active beer with lots of legs

Smell: Lots of oak at first with some semi-sweet chocolate, dark cherries, raisins, dark fruit, currants, slight sweet vanillas, bourbon, and more dark chocolate. Smells awesome with lots of chocolate cover cherry notes

Taste: Big oak notes on the attack followed by a really nice warming vanilla, chocolate covers cherries, more oak, a earthy oat like flavor, raisins, bourbon, and dark chocolate. Really nice

Mouthfeel: Big and heavy bodied on the tongue. Medium carbonation and slightly wet as the taste develops on the tongue in dries very slowly to allow all the flavors to really get their chance to shine through. Alcohol is present with a warm sensation half way through the profile that also warms the chest but nothing over powering

Overall: Wow! One really nicely done BA imperial stout. It has a lot of the same characteristics as bourbon county only not as thick. Really enjoyed the dark fruit and dark chocolate notes and how they meld together really nicely. The finish is also perfect as it doesn't dry super fast allowing the beer to really run it's complex profile.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

bottle aged 8 months

appearance is dark brown almost black. smell is bourbon all in front and the heat is there. vanilla and sweet malt is apparent in the smell. taste is much like the smell. lots of bourbon, vanilla, a little coffee and some toffee notes in there as well. not to complex of a profile (no roasted malt apparent, or dark chocolate flavors). goes down smooth, not a lot of carbonation. Lacing is spotty, but not too prominent. Mouthfeel is smooth, not to bitey or heavy. Good for the style, just looking for more depth and personality. Food pairing should be something rich or sharp. Beemster XO, smoked bbq, southern food will go well here, such as gumbo, cajun spices and cracklings. Pecan desserts and spiceful sweets such as carrot cake or sock-it-to me cake (upside down pineapple cake).

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, vanilla, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness and an alcohol kick 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 good beer with a nice barrel aging treatment that works well with the base beer.
