Small cola colored head and a lot of carb bubbles sticking to the glass when pouring. This dissipates quickly and you're left with a mostly black body with a red hue to it.

I get a lot of vanilla and dark fruits, with bourbon barrel, as well as some coconut and chocolate syrup. It's not too sweet and not too dry. Smack in the middle for a beer of this style.

An excellent bourbon barrel beer indeed. I prefer this beer to your typical barrel aged RIS because the drinkability is increased without all of that roasty, bitter cocoa and very heavy, full body.

My final EBF sample. I remember having a variant of this with vanilla added or something of the like. Now it's on to the base. It pours thick, pen-ink black with a thin ring of dark brown froth. Aroma is huge. Bourbon, fudge, espresso, alcohol, and vanilla. All the necessary aromas of a great Imperial Stout and set to a gaudy level of intensity. The flavor envelops over the tongue like some of the best. Like NyQuil on the palate. Liquid fudge, high-end espresso beans, cola, just a bit of anise, French vanilla and a big bourbon underbelly. Body is incredible. I sampled many beers during this festival; most of them being Imperial Stouts from some of the best breweries. This one was right in the running for one of the best beers I tried. I don't remember liking the vanilla version as much. The body is impeccable. Great brew.
