Great flavor. A little boozy, but not overpowering. Still get the chocolate and a hint of bourbon.

Not a big fan of chocolate to start with, but this is an amazing beer!great taste, mouthfeel. If you're a fan of imperial stouts, this is one not to miss! This is truly a diamond in the rough, let it age for a month or 3 and savor every drop. Found this in the "dump bin" and very glad I tried it!

Poured 2014 bottle into New Belgium globe

A-Pours opaque black with a 1-finger dark tan head. Very good lacing.

S-Aroma of vanilla from the wood, with a mild note of chocolate and bourbon beneath.

T-Flavor of coffee with chocolate, and maybe some raisin underneath, before the vanilla and some light heat from the bourbon come through in the finish.

M-Body is full, but a touch watery, with a light bourbon in the finish.

O-Overall a great stout, could get ride of that water down mouthfeel. Was glad to have found this one.

2014 vintage - 22 oz. bottle

A - pitch black

S - mild chocolate notes, not much bourbon

T - pretty nice bourbon and chocolate notes

M - too thin for a stout this big

O - A good effort and a solid brew, but they have a ways to go to catch up to the best BB stouts available
