2013 vintage from a bottle at GI Taproom in August. Really smoothed out while still retaining huge coffee character

Pour is pitch black, head dissipates very quickly. Not much head or lacing. Smell is great. Plenty of booze and barrel reminiscent of regular bcbs, with a strong roasty coffee presence. Taste follows the nose well. Big charred oak. Roasted coffee notes contribute to a bitterness that balances with the chocolate sweetness. Slight bourbon bite in the back end. Mouthfeel is relatively thin, a tad thinner than reg bcbs. Overall pretty solid, nice showcase of coffee. Only complaint is the mouthfeel, it seemed to be a bit watered down.

16.9 oz. bottled on 21 Sep 16

Pours black with maroon edges and a quickly receding frothy light brown foam head. Smells like a nice blend of rich coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, bourbon, oak, some dried fruit, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like the richest coffee imaginable, roasted malts, notes of rich dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, sweet bourbon, oak, some dried fruit, molasses, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, smooth with moderate carbonation. Overall a really great bourbon barrel aged imperial stout with coffee.
