This was far too boozy for me. I couldn't enjoy the coffee flavors.

Way too hot and way too carbonated for an imperial coffee stout. There are some nice barrel characteristics, slight chocolate sweetness and bourbon in the aroma and the flavor, but burnt coffee is the headliner, which isn't a good thing. Smells much better than it taste, and that's always disappointing in any beer. It may get better with a few years on it, once the alcohol and coffee fade more... but that's a little bit of a cop-out statement.
