Poured into a snifter. Appearance is nearly black, with a half-inch creamy light brown head that faded within a minute or two. The nose is very boozy up front, almost mediciny, with some slight notes of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. I didn't get the alcohol in the taste, as the malts covered it nicely. A bit of chocolate and some dark fruit flavors lasted on the back end. As it warmed, the chocolate really came out. I thought the mouthfeel was a little thin for such a big beer. Overall, a pretty damn good imp stout, I'd buy it again! I'm going to throw a few in the cellar to see well they hold up with some time on them.

12 oz bottle from 2014 poured into snifter

A- Dark brown, a bit thin, almost no head.
S- Not a hugely areomatic beer... carmel, slight bourbon, roasted malt
T- Nice base beer althought it seems much more like a porter than a stout to me. Roasted malts, very balanced. Thin and sweet bourbon flavor comes through on the back end. Maybe a bit of vanilla.
M - Medium. Leaves your mouth sticky.

O- Great every day "bourbon barrel" aged beer. Very accessable for those who want to start
