One of my absolute favorite beers! Had this on cask at New Holland and it tasted much creamier than the regular Dragon's Milk...tasted JUST like a chocolate shake!

22 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Chocolate, roasted coffee, earthy, vanilla, bourbon, oak, a little booze, toffee, caramel,

Taste: There is a nice balance between the stout and bourbon barrel flavors with a little heat in the end.

Mouthfeel: Silky, creamy, full bodied, smooth, a little booze, and low to medium carbonation.

Overall: For an 11% bourbon barrel aged imperial stout, this is one I'll have to buy and age for a bit. This was a nice sipper that got better when it warmed up a bit.

04/26/14 From bottle. Started out on the wrong foot. I was eating & this just didn't enhance the meal at all. Once I was finished & it had warmed a bit, it showed a multi-layered profile. The most impressive taste to me was the toffee. I've heard this characteristic used many times but it has eluded me...until this bottle. Very smooth with a strange mix of oiliness but not particularly thick. Next time I'll get a piece of sharp cheese to play off the best of this well made brew. Hold the presses...10%? A very deceptive 10%.
