Had it on tap.

Look: Dark, black, even holding it up to the light could not see through it. Poured a nice thick head which settled in about 5 minutes.

Smell: Hints of Vanilla and chocolate.

Taste: Bourbon flavor present. Malty backbone. Coffee aftertaste. Alcohol present but not overpowering.

Feel: Thick but not syrupy. Lingers a few seconds. Light carbonation.

Overall: a delicious imperial stout with great flavor that does not overpower your senses.

Looked the part of a big stout and smelled hints of bourbon slight chocolate.
Tasted normal big stout flavors, nothing unusual and very agreeable.
The body was way to light for what I was expecting.

Deepest black color with a thin light caramel head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of licorice, dark fruits, caramels, cocoa powder and coffee.
Elegant flavor with notes of licorice, lots of red and black fruits, milder Bourbon, guaraná, vanilla, coconut, oak, raisins, cocoa powder and dark chocolate, mild anise and light charcoal.
Quite dry aftertaste with a long lasting roasted note.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 11.9% is felt, but in harmony with the overall beer.
Well balanced and complex Imperial Stout, though the bourbon and hops were more on the undertone. Very chocolaty, nutty and coconutty. Great beer.
