Huge thanks to Ivan for the chance to try this one. Had no idea what I was walking into on this.

A: Black body capped by a huge tan head that foams up in the glass like crazy, nearly spilling over. Retention is ridiculous, and after about ten minutes, the beer finally settles at about a half finger. Leaves big spots of lace after each sip.

S: Some subdued whiskey notes right away with a lot of sweetness behind it. Milk chocolate, rich cream, coffee with sugar and cream, char, roasted malt and some light oak. Very well balanced.

T: Roasted malt mingling with milk chocolate right away. Some caramel, tootsie roll, vanilla, cream and toffee in the middle. Finish shows a touch of smoke, anise and charred oak. Mouthfeel is rich and super creamy. The thick head makes the beer almost milkshake-like. A really unique and really incredible barrel aged stout.

12oz bottle. Thanks JR. Poured into a O'so snifter today, 4/22/2014.

A- Dark black body, two finger mocha head that's particularly large for a BA stout like this. Great retention and some lacing left over. Quite different than all the other BA stouts I've seen, actually.

S- Very sweet lactose, roast and charred malts that is cut by a nice bitter spicy rye nose. Solid, nothing super special or pungent, but this combination shows up much better on the nose.

F- Very good and very balanced. Simultaneously sweet lactose, sweet whiskey notes and dark malts mixed in with the rye bitterness that balances everything out. Very flavourful and very interesting.

M- Medium bodied but on the thicker side, very substantial and surprisingly low carbonation despite the large head in the appearance.

O- Very good imperial stout, it's certainly not BCBS but it's a very good and somewhat unique beer in its own right.
