3.31/5 rDev -13.8%
On tap at Release
A - Dark black coffee with a small cocoa colored head 3
S - Vanilla, burnt malt, dark chocolate and anise
T - Roasted chocolate and lots of anise up front. There is a heavy barrel presence that comes throught that gives it a slight bourbony sweetness. There are also plums and other
dark fruits. The finish is where the beer starts to lose me as it is very bitter from roasted malt and dark chocolate flavors
M - Medium body with light sweetness. The finish is a bitter astringency. You also get some warming presence from the booze.
O - A really roasted and dark chocolate dominated RIS that is too bitter in the finish for me to really enjoy it.

Thanks to Robbie for this bottle. White Wax.
Poured in to snifter.
A - Black with a thin layer of mocha-brown head.
S - Chocolate fudge, charred oak and lighter bourbon and vanilla aromas with just a touch of roast coming through.
T - A huge charred oak presence dominates throughout and is complimented by a big roast profile, espresso and a piney hop flavour. An ashy flavour that is not off-putting at all, but is defintiely present. Not much bourbon or vanilla at all.
M - Medium body. Light carbonation.
O - There was a little too much oak in this one without the complimentary bourbon and vanilla notes that I expect from bourbon barrel again.

Big thanks to sleuthdog for hooking me up with this bottle!
Pitch black with a creamy thin beige head that retains well, leaving thick lace and clouds of beading beneath, subtle booze legging.
Charred milk chocolate aromas with vanilla and cinnamon (?). Some nutty brown ale notes, mild fruit character, marshmallow or something like that. Not your typical BA imperial stout in this regard. Smells nice.
The first thing I notice is the mouthfeel... perfect creaminess that provides a great platform for the rest of the beer. S'mores, milk chocolate, very mellow bourbon, honey... I can see why this beer would receive a mixed set of ratings. It's rather unusual but, personally, I really dig it. Perfect consistency with a wide range of unexpectedly mild flavors.
I wish I had another one of these. Thanks Jon!!

The pour results in a dark brown/black oil slick with tan foam and light lacing.
The nose imparts a lot of oak, mixed with toffee, alcohol phenols, caramel, roast, and slight char.
The taste mirrors the nose with an emphasis on the bourbon and toffee.
Mouthfeel is on the thin side of what I prefer, but it sits well and keeps this very drinkable.
Overall, No single part is overwhelmingly fantastic, but when combined in the whole- this is truly a great beer. Very enjoyable.
