3.8/5 rDev -0.3%

Had back to back with 2011. This one has a markedly different appearance form the 2011 which looked less like a stout. This one forms a thin dark tan head on more of a jet black body. Aroma is a bit mild with a very distinct earthy aroma with coffee and roasted malts. Some vanilla notes as well. Flavor follows with a mellow and semi sweet bourbon presence with a background of dark chocolate, oak, vanilla and roasted malts. Full body and light carbonation. Very interesting how different years 2011 and 2012 are.
Thanks to Chris K in Cincinnati for sending me this one.

Picked up in a Cincinnati Kroger, about 18 bucks for a 4 pack. A bit high and no nice wax on these like the pictures of prior year brewings.
Pours about as dark as dark gets, just a hair of brown hues break through at the rims. Even the pour is nearly pitch black. There's a bit of a tan head but it has a sort of fake head fizz sound and looks rather bad, would be better with no head at all.
Molasses, raises, hints of vanilla and oak. I'm not getting the chocolate or coffee often seen in these stouts nor am I getting oak aromas.
This beer takes on a rather sweet stout side. Again chocolate while here is way in the back and coffee just isn't really showing up to me. What I do get is a lot of floral hops, oak, vanilla, raisins and prunes. This is not as big and dark in flavor as the beer looks.
A rather thin body given I would put the ABV in the 10% range. This isn't syrupy nor is there any body from carbonation.
This is a nice beer, but given the price I wont' be buying again. If there were a style for bourbon barrel american imperial stout, this would score a D- if not even an F. This style just has so many amazing examples and this falls into the home brew levels. Still I love this style and I don't score to style. I'm 'happy with this beer and I'll try again.
