Fairly black. Some brown at the bottom curve. Fluffy khaki head settles down quickly.

Really strong bourbon barrel on the nose with spirit and wood.
Taste is a little better for me with a more pronounced chocolate character. Still heavy on the barrel and not in the best of ways.

Good but much better BBA Imperial Stouts out there.

Served in a teku glass.

Appearance is extremely dark brown, but not quite black, with a khaki head that thins out from the initial pour but still sticks around.

Aroma has notes of vanilla and oak. A nice bit of the bourbon character comes through as well. Not very roasty, but definitely some fudgy, chocolate notes. It's a bit sweet smelling as well, which may be from the molasses added. Alcohol seems to be pretty well hidden for 11%. Overall a solid smelling bourbon barrel stout.

Taste follows the nose perfectly. The alcohol is way more pronounced in the taste than the aroma. It's fairly boozy. Lots of bourbon character, especially on the aftertaste. Middle of the mouth has some nice sweetness to it. Dark chocolate comes to mind. Not very much roast to this one, which I don't mind. Alcohol becomes more pronounced as it warms.

Mouthfeel is thinner than you would expect with a bourbon barrel stout, with a bit too much carbonation for my personal preferences.

Overall a solid bourbon barrel stout. Definitely worth the price and worth trying. Would drink again for sure.
