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.

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.

This is an amazing beer. Rich in flavor with full body. The beer is a substantial stout that could easily stand on its own. The bourbon adds to the richness and makes it very flavorful, but is not overbearing.

Almost gave it all 5's, but there /could/ be something better. Not sure how.
