The beer comes in black with lots of carbonation.

The aroma is extremely bourbon forward with vanilla, caramel, oak, sweetness. Hints of the chocolate and the roasted stout in the back.

The flavor follows with that pop of sweet bourbon up front. Some molasses and vanilla in the middle as the beer offers some bitter chocolate and coffee in the middle. The stout is quite hidden though as bourbon dominates the beer, not necessarily in a burning and abrasive manner. Oak dries out in the back end.

A bourbon forward imperial stout, with good flavors throughout. However, a thin mouthfeel and imbalance of bourbon and stout are not what I look for.
