4.15/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
A: Pours black/deep brown without much head and the little there was didn't stick for long. The beer looks decent but nothing much. This is usually the case with barrel aged beers.
S: You definitely get the bourbon notes right off the bat: vanilla, leather, pepper, marshmallows and alcohol. You get also notes of dark chocolate, coffee and dark fruits, the usual for this type of beer. The overall smell is really light though.
T: Extremely drinkable for 11ABV and you definitely don't taste the alcohol much, if at all. The beer is extremely well balanced between roasted bitterness and sweetness, even when the beer doesn't feel heavy at all. You get the chocolate, the coffee, the marshmallows and all of the good bourbon qualities.
M: Quite light actually. Usually it's an issue for that imperial stouts are lighter body, but it somehow fits the beer really well. Very sticky though.
O: This is a very solid beer that I have no problem recommending any day. Great stuff, extremely drinkable for 11 ABV.
Serving type: bottle
