A: black with a deep garnet showing on the edge. The persistent head is a half finger of medium-brown, compact bubbles.
S: It smells like brownies with a shot of chocolate liqueur and a splash of Bourbon. There is a moderate malt sweetness with moderate coffee and roast. A moderately-strong chocolate aroma is complemented and given depth from a moderate vanilla that the oak barrel brought to the party. A s
T: A blend of moderately-strong chocolate and bourbon flavors with a moderate oak barrel character that brings a vanilla flavor. A moderate hops bitterness and not much in the way of hops flavor maybe just a touch of citrus hops flavor. Moderately-strong malt sweetness making for a balance that is slightly towards the sweet. The finish is medium with an aftertaste of chocolate and roasted malt flavors with some hops bitterness.
M: A smooth, somewhat cream medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. There is a light bit of alcohol warmth.
O: A well balanced beer where the three primary flavors of roasty Imperial Stout, chocolate and bourbon barrel aging complement each other. The smell has a lot of depth and complexity and is really impressive.

Smooth character and chocolate taste. Normally I like Guiness but this stout is an outstanding substitute. My first taste was in Williamsburg, VA at the Greenleafe Cafe. Good location with a plethora of beers on tap.
This stout offers a good head, a chocolate bouquet, smooth drink and a mild, sweet finish. Not bitter and definitely drinkable. It would be excellent as a dessert all by itself!!
