Pulled this one straight out of the Whale's Vagina after visiting an old college buddy and attending a conference in San Diego.

A - Pretty typical for a bourbon barrel imperial stout. Black as night with a one finger head that quickly fades to just about nothing. Decent lacing on the walls of the snifter.

S - Really a lot going on here. Outstanding. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, bourbon and burnt roasts.

T - Vanilla and sugars up front and in the finish, with bitter coffee and chocolate in the finish. Really tasty. Bitter roasts linger on the tongue long after the drink is consumed.

M - Good. A little thin for such a rich tasting brew, but good.

D - Very high. In fact, higher than most bourbon stouts, including KBS and GI BCS. Really no alcohol burn at all. I can easily drink a bottle, or maybe even two, by myself.
