Batch 209 -

Big, bold, imperial stout - very dark, mocha head, thin barrel-charred lacing. Incredibly pronounced note of raw bourbon - caramel and booze. Other barrel notes of char, oak, vanilla as well as incredibly dark, bitter chocolate and dark roasted coffee. The finish is spectacular - very strong, as if it actually gets bigger.

Fresh from the oak - this is very barrel forward with tons of whiskey, and in every way fantastic.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours without a head on a black body, just a bit of transparency at the edges.

Smell - Lots of oak. Huge barrel character. Bourbon. Some chocolate and a bit of molasses and caramel behind it.

Taste - Again, it's almost all barrel. Oak and a sharp bourbon flavor. The bourbon flavor never diminishes, although the oak flavor comes back in the end with a bite. Molasses more prominent with some dark chocolate that never reaches the fudge-y heights of Game of Jones. A little bit of lactose sweetness lingers on the palate.

Mouthfeel - Booze and barrel all over this. Medium-low carbonation. A sipper for sure.

Overall - If you like bourbon-dominated beers, this is for you. If you like to taste the beer back there, this is not for you. I happen to really like bourbon, although I think I would prefer to drink it straight over this.

I had this at fobab but didn't tick, so I'm pleased they bottled it (though a hefty $7 for 12oz.).

Inky black and opaque body. Coffee colored surface head. Looks viscous.

Great aroma. It's smells like s'mores... Graham cracker, chocolate, toasted marshmallow. Heavy oak and vanilla characteristics.

BT is my go to bourbon so I'm excited for the taste. It doesn't disappoint. Heavy vanilla and chocolate. Char to a lesser extent. Woody, toffee, molasses. It pulls the heavy spicy rye characteristic and displays it in a long finish.

Heavy and lingering sweetness in the mouthfeel. Boozy but smooth.

Well done. Dispute the price tag I'm glad it's a 12oz serving. It's quite filling but delicious.

Black with brownish edges, thin layer of tan foam across the surface that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. Very minimal if any spotty lace.

Aroma is sweet and boozy, later becoming a little more earthy and woody at room temperature. Initially it's like sniffing a pour of Buffalo Trace.

Taste has more nuance, though still plenty of whiskey heat packed in. Woody drying aftertaste, much like a sip of bourbon. Middle has notes of earthy roasted malt, toffee, caramel, toasted almond, dry tobacco leaves. Chewy and rich, but not without some sting and numbing alcohol. Overall a little more balance would be nice, though it tastes good.
