Much thanks to Hendrick24!

Appearance: Pours dark and viscous looking with no head to speak of, minus a collar of off-white head.

Smell: Richest of the rich coffee roast, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, dark fruit...it smells like a fancy Starbucks(thought please understand, I loathe to mention the place) iced coffee, made with expensive, rich coffee.

Taste: Rich chocolate, vanilla and coffee roast say "whaazuuupp???" Middle shows a Bourbon emergence with bitter roast and some caramel. The end is a nice fade of rich coffee, distant caramel and bitter chocolate. The vanilla beans add a nice, noticeable extra vanilla dimension that sets this beer a bit above the rest.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied for sure, though not in the realm of Huna or BCBS...but there's no shame in that. For this abv and the style, this feel is just right. This beer is quite crushable.

Overall: I'm thinking crazy things about this beer, like it's better than FBS or even KBS...I wouldn't concretely come to that conclusion without a side by side, but I must drop this simple fact...this beer is nothing short of AWESOME!

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.
7.5% ABV, Bottled on 03OCT13.

A - Pouring out a little thin and clear dark brown in color, the black beer generates next to no head. The short skim of toffee-colored foam rests gently on the beer, dotting the snifter in a few specks of lace.

S - Seductive bourbon and oak barrel encapsulates rich milk chocolate, dusty cocoa, notes of cold coffee, and smooth vanilla bean almost perfectly. From the moment the cap is twisted off this bottle, the boisterous nose can't be missed!

T - The slightly thinner flavor, while it's still good, looses a lot of the robustness the nose offers as subtle nuances and richness don't make it through. For example, dry cocoa and bittersweet chocolate take the place of the sweet and more rich milk chocolate nose but, the beer keeps it's super-sexy light barrel aging, which imparts nice vanilla and oak with a hint of alcohol on the finish.

M - Initially medium-full-bodied as it hits the tongue, Doubly Down 'N Even Dirtier begins to feel a little thin mid palate through to the finish, partly due to the bourbon alcohol. Softly warming on the finish, this imperial stout finishes with a lovely dry chocolate flavor that lingers nicely.

O - Doubly Down 'N Even Dirtier creates a robust presence from the minute the cap is released, wafting heavy chocolate malt notes into the air with smooth bourbon barrel-aging coming through. Warm alcohol and vanilla tannins create the ultimate blend with the flavor of this beer, smoothing out for a silky feel that's just a bit on the thin side but damn drinkable regardless. Seductive, delicious, and approachable all the way around!

Big thanks to cousin Sonny for splitting.

A- Poured from a 12oz bottle to a pint glass with a pitch black, oily thick body. Head forms for a few moments with some dark bubbles but dies fast. No ring and no lace for me.

S- Vanilla coffee latte. Dessert all the way here with a decadent mix of espresso, vanilla, cocoa and oak. Creme brûlée aspects.

T- Good delivery of the bourbon and oak from the barrel, strong but not overpowering. Rich chocolate and coffee as well as roast malts cover all the dark flavor bases. Vanilla whiskey with slight alcohol. Cocoa nib powder picks up big with time.

MF- Moderately thick bodied with medium carbonation level. Finishes with some warmth and roasty cocoa nib bitterness. A bit foamy for this style to me.

Very nice and solid stout with a strong whiskey barrel feel. Solid mix of the rich with the whiskey.

12oz bottle received as an extra in a trade with a generous BA thanks.

Appearance: Pours a murky deep mahogany to black with a 2 finger khaki crown that displays moderate retention and lace.

Smell: Cocoa dominates with lightly fudgy chocolate notes and some vanilla playing supporting roles. Hard to pull much bourbon barrel presence out of the nose, but I'm not sure just how fresh this bottle might be.

Taste: Same as the nose with a bit more vanilla presence.

Mouthfeel: Interesting...goes down feeling like its on the light side of thick bodied yet has a watery quality about it in the finish?

Overall: Seems like a pretty nice rotating offering, but nothing I'd go out of my way to obtain.
