22oz bomber poured into a pint. bottle dated 9/13/13

A - Pours such a deep brown that it appears almost black - barely any head. Thick almost syrupy legs coat the class with a brief swirl.

S - Boooze :) A nice blend of bourbon with a hint of spice coming from the rum casks (it is aged 50/50 in each). Some malty sweetness coming through, but you have to search for it, and who cares when this much awesome booze is smacking you in the face

T - Heavy booze and barrel characteristics up front. Sweetness followed by a nice bitterness on the finish from the roasted malts (no real hop profile to speak of). A bit of a harsh finish with some twinges of slight sourness that don't detract but put me in mind of an aged wee heavy.

M - Creamy and thick with a surprisingly bright carbonation given the thin head. Just the right amount of body to match the style - rich and satisfying but not so much you can't finish a pint

O - Super impressed although the imperial brown ale tag doesn't ring true to me - or at least I am struggling to see the difference between this and a barrel aged scotch ale. Perhaps this is a bit darker with more roast profile than a scotch and a little less sweet, but could easily fall into the same category. Overall fantastic. Worth seeking out, but I am a big barrel aged fan, and some people might find this overly hot and boozy.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours dark brown nearly black and almost solid in color. Nice light tan one finger head that retains nicely.

Smell is great lots of vanilla and barrel overlay a bold malty beer. Whiskey and run blends nicely In The nose nicely. Some nice toasted marahmellows are also laced throughout the brew.

Taste is awesome and follows the nose. Rich slightly nutty slightly sweet malt is forward along with a great barrel presences laced with vanilla and marahmellow. Slight whiskey in the middle and rum comes out on the exhale.

Mouthfeel is great. somewhat thick with mild carbonation. Good amount of malty stickiness and a slight dry finish.
