Extremely dark brown body with a thin rim of tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and bold Bourbon nose and flavors. A big full bodied beer.

Pours slick and oily with minimal khaki foam even after a hard pour.

Nutty, deep roasted notes, vanilla, dark chocolate, and a hint of bourbon sweetness.

Lush roasted barley, chocolate, oak, earthy, vanilla, and bourbon.

Heavy bodied, very light carbonation, slick, and unfortunately thin.

Smells wonderful, tastes alright, but the thin mouthfeel is off-putting for the style.

This beer is far too sweet for me. The bourbon flavors are nice and don't over power but the stout is bland and the vanilla seems to come through too much.

12oz bottle, 2014 release, 9.5% abv
A - jet black, but flat - no head whatsoever - even with a rigorous pour
S - roasted barley, bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark chocolate
T - similar to aroma - dark chocolate, roasty, vanilla, oak, heavy bourbon
M - thinner side of medium, no carbonation, sticky and sweet, fairly boozy, but appropriate for the style
O - big disappointment here. I'm usually not overly picky with imperial stouts, but this one lacks in quality control. Flavors are good, but the lack of carbonation is a big problem for me.

12 ounce bottle into a snifter.

Pours with no head at all, even with a hard pour. Smells terrific- boozy, vanilla, lots of roasted malts. Don't know whose bourbon barrels they are using, but this tastes really good. A little oak and vanilla, a bit more of a boozy taste, but not detracting. Not as thick as most RIS's, but not thin.

First beer from Wild Onion and it's a great first impression.
