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.

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!!
