Had this on tap at AtG on 5/10/2013

The pour is thick and black with no light able to penetrate. The head is off white.

The smell is of soft dark fruit and barrel. Nothing is really loud here, but the balance is great.

The taste starts with a massive darkness quickly balanced by the milk sugar softness and sweetness. Muted but balanced dark fruits are throughout swirling with lots of milk chocolate notes. The bourbon barrel comes through clearly, but it is not push at all. I think I get some port notes way in the background. Again, the balance is just stellar. I am floored by how well this beer is crafted.

The mouthfeel is very appropriate for a 13% imperial milk stout. It is thick but coats only lightly.

Overall, this beer is darn near perfect. Balance, balance, balance...but brilliantly complex. I think this beer is a big step ahead of their better known Bo and Luke.

On tap at smoke and barrel.

Has a great first impression - dark upon dark with slight lacing. Aroma is very boozy/bourbon with some vanilla oak mixed with roastiness. Smell absolutely delicious/intoxicating. Taste is an explosion of vanilla bourbon milk chocolate sweetness. This is certainly close to BCBS and needs to be bottled in high quantities immediately.
