look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance: Very dark and nearly opaque. Some slight ruby highlights around the edges when held to light. For an 11.5%'er, impressive mocha head and messy lacing.
smell: Wow, rich fudge and espresso. Not particularly complex, but deeply rich and pleasing.
taste: A bit thinner than the nose. Much of the same flavors of the nose initially, a little watered down, then a bitter-sweet finish.
mouthfeel: A little thin for an imp stout.
overall: Nicely done. Alcohol is well hidden. Tasty dessert or aperitif.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours pitch black with a thin dark tan head. Body seemed thick but not much lacing.

S - Bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar and expresso.

T - Bitter dark chocolate mixed in with black expresso. Some licorice then vanilla. Bourbon barreling seems a bit overwhelming but calms down.

M - Full bodied, viscous and low carbonation. Can seem a bit cloying on the flavor.

O - It's a mess, but a good mess. Maybe time will do it good but until then it's still enjoyable now.

Totally jacked for this one - capped 22oz bomber split into tulips with my bro.

Thanks Dope!!!!

A: Very dark pour, dense body, opaque and nearly jet black, smallish darker brown head but decent lacing.

S: Bourbon, caramel, maple, vanilla, brown sugar, coffee, roast, toasted coconut. The coffee is moderate-to-light but mixes well with the sweetness of the barrel and malt/brown sugar.

T: Again, sweeter vanilla notes hit first, with underlying coconut, maple, some oak, caramel and chocolate. Roast & coffee underneath.

MF: Nearly full-bodied, pretty viscous with a lower felt carbonation presence.

O: Coffee and barrel integrates really well with this stout. The sweet aromas/flavors pop to the front but this thing isn't cloying by any means. Also, really not boozy at all. I enjoyed!
