Pours black with a thin light tan head. Nose is bourbon vanilla tones and wood. Flavor is bringing more bourbon than anything. Boozy tones with touches of vanilla. I mean this is like drinking a rough Bourbon County Stout. Feel is thicker on liquid abd carbonation is lower. Overall nice. You'll need to appreciate bourbon to appreciate this one. But overall it's nice enough.

2011 vintage poured into a tulip glass.

A - A small dark tan head fades away fairly quickly. Nearly opaque, black with just a smidgen of dark brown near the top.

S - The nose has a very strong bourbon aroma. There is also notes of vanilla and wood present. The vanilla really shines as it warms.

M - Medium to full in body with light carbonation.

T - The bourbon is flavor is strong in this one as expected from the nose. There is also soft vanilla notes and a nice amount of oak near the finish. It finishes hot with some more bourbon presence. When it warms up some chocolate flavors show up.

A pretty nice barrel aged imperial stout. The bourbon is very strong, I feel like this would be a great candidate for aging for a year or two.
