Thanks to dogdoc for hooking me up with this one in our recent trade. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

A: Very dark brown, essentially opaque. Forms a thin tan head that fades quickly and low visible carbonation.

S: Oaky vanilla, milder bourbon, some chocolatey malts, sweet dark cacao, and dry woody tannins.

T: Roasted malts, vanilla and cacao in balance, tannins from the oak, some muted bourbon, and mild dark fruits - almost more candied fruit peel. Sweet maltiness with mild roast bitterness and a bit of bourbon burn in the hang.

M: Silky smooth mouthfeel but the body is on the light side. Low alcohol heat, especially for style, and moderate alcohol presence.

O: This was a good beer, but not mind-blowing. It didn't have the chewy, thick mouthfeel I'd expect, and there isn't a whole lot of bourbon flavor or heat. Certainly not a beer for someone who prefers a heavy-handed approach to barrel-aging. I had heard enough good things I had high expectations, and it didn't live up to those. I'm still happy to have tried it, but this falls quite short of the best barrel-aged stouts.

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.
