Having this on tap as I type.
This little guy is spot on with the ratings. almost opaque in color with very little head and light lacing. Smell is woody with boozy plum and raisins. Taste is spiced turkish coffee wifh a slick start. The more it warms, the more the bourbon comes through. The mouthfeel isn't chewy as one might think, but a little easier on the back of the throat. The taste overall though, is of spiked coffee with an aftertaste of straight soy sauce! If you can get past that, this is a very good sipping beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Another one I've heard a lot about, although not as much hype, glad to try it.
Poured into becker pint glass; oily brown pour, black in the glass with a medium tan head that sticks around leaving nice lacing. Smell is dark fruit, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Taste is big roasted malt, dark fruits bathed in boozy bourbon, with vanilla and oak finishing out a mellow, sweet finish with alcohol heat washing everything down. While not as well-balanced as other big name ones, this is a good easily accessible BA imperial stout. It's a bit messy compared to BCBS, but still good. Mouthfeel is full but a bit too slick, I'd prefer a bit more creaminess.
