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

Poured from 12 oz bottle into snifter.

A: Pours midnight black with one finger tan colored head with a some spotty lacing.

S: Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and a little bourbon.

T: Mix of semi-sweet dark chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon. Some oak flavors lingering in the background. The bourbon is a bit less prominent than I would have thought.

M: Full bodied with a creamy texture. Alcohol is reasonably well hidden.

O: Solid Imperial stout, and one I would pick up whenever I'm in an area that carries it.

Serving type: bottle

This is an awesome beer. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a 160oz glass. Comes our black with a minimal tan head and a little carbonation. The aroma is a bourbon and chocolate with little hints of vanilla. The taste is great. As soon as it hits your mouth you get a chocolate/vanilla mix. The back end is mostly bourbon. It's the perfect combination. The beer is not too thin or thick. It's just right. I actually prefer this beer over KBS.
