Imperial milk stout aged in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans
The beer pours a dark black (not inky/oily) and has a razor thin head of tightly packed small tan bubbles that fades into nothing quickly. The nose has vanilla sweetness upfront, dessert like, with some chocolate and bourbon in the background, maybe some donuts too (?). It seems a little biting and spicy, but it's predominantly overpowered by the beer's lactose sweetness. The taste has a smooth, chocolatey sweetness upfront followed by a woody, caramel, and (slight) booze in the finish. The beer has a medium-heavy body, not as thick as expected, bold vanilla and lactose, with more subtle barrel characteristics, very little carbonation, masked booze, and is rounded and drinkable. This is a solid offering from 4 hands, reasonably priced, but disappointed with the limited production...would definitely drink again.
