12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 11/20/2014. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas with big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, oak, cream, light smoke/char, and roast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, oak, cream, light smoke/char, and roast/oaky earthiness. Fair amount of roast/oaky bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, cream, light smoke/char, and roast/oaky earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, fairly slick, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent barrel aged imperial cream stout. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Super dark, inky black. Big whiskey smell, dark chocolate, cocoa, and oak. Nice vanilla undertones in the taste. Medium thick, creamy mouthfeel.
