4.11/5 rDev -1.2%
12 oz. The usual black pour, thin layer of tan head. Some minimal lacing.
Aroma, Chocolate, caramel and some barrel induced vanilla.
Taste, Light roast malt, chocolates, toffee. Some vanilla. Big woody oak component. Finishes a little drier, some cocoa coffee and anise.
Near full body. Carbonation a little more than creamy. Alcohol well in check.
A real nice blend of barrel and base beer. Not a barrel bomb, but a well done treatment.

Another great extra from ThickNStout.
Never heard of this beer or honestly brewery before, but it this one is true treat.
Not the biggest or blackest, but appears appealing. Slight bit of light appears around the edges.
Aroma is bourbon vanilla oaky sweetness. Not harsh at all.
Taste follows the nose. Oak, bourbon sweetness, roast coffee bitterness. Again not harsh at all and very easy drinking for 10 percent BA beer.
Mouthfeel is well executed, creamy and coating but not heavy.
A very easy drinking and enjoyable BA imperial stout.

Poured into a small tulip glass jet black with a thinner khaki colored head atop,it just looked menacing...in a good way.Roasted nuts play a big role in the nose along with bitter chocolate,and vanilla/oak.Low carbonation and a fuller chewey feel is nearly spot on for this beer,just great for slower sipping.Flavors are rich with roasted nuts and bourbon notes but not over the top,chocolate and alcohol dipped dark fruit in the finish.I really liked this beer,rich but not over the top with the barrel.

Poured into a tulip glass
A: Black as tar with a burgundy ring. No head, not much lacing.
S: Oaky, bourbon, vanilla, malts, anise. Bring it on.
T: Damn! Smokey, sweet and malty. Licorice and vanilla mix with a bourbon backdrop. Alcohol burn slips in for a killer climax. A toasty finish. The Russians have landed.
M: Medium. Not much carbonation.
O: A real sipper. Warming smooths out the finish. Share with friends. Would go well with chocolate chip cookies or cheddar. More, please.

3.59/5 rDev -13.7%
A: Pours jet black with good carbonation leaving behind a moderate tannish colored cap, headretention was and the lacing was meh
S: A nice bourbon forward nose mixed with a chocolate, roasted malts and some wood. Pretty simple and forward but pretty promising as well
T: Initial bourbon splash with a roasted malt backbone and bakers powder chocolate. A wee bit of wood on the taste midway and a restrained vanilla throughout . A hint of smoke towards the end. Speaking of the end, it finishes warm, sweet with layers cocoa and bourbon
M: Medium/full body, well carbonated, perhaps a tinge to high, warming pseudo velvety body
O: I seem to get a cheap bakers powder cocoa from every stout this brewery does. the beers are not bad, just not that complex.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours pitch black with a very tiny dark tan head. Some moderate lacing.
Aroma has lots of char, vanilla, and bourbon, of course, along with notes of caramel and toffee. Nice but not especially impressive.
The flavor is very similar to the nose. Tons of bourbon up front with the vanilla and smoke that goes along with it along with some sweet caramel. Very full and sticky mouthfeel with just a light touch of bitterness.
Overall, an ok bourbon stout but nothing that really makes it stand out from the many others out there.
