Batch 2. From bottle into snifter.

Pours pitch black with almost no foam at all upon pour. No foam present during the drinking. A lot of things going on here. Initially getting a lot of 'fudgy' aromas: cocoa nibs, vanilla, brownie. Taste definitely follows the nose but adds the right amount of pepper, spice kick at the end. As it warmed, the cinnamon came out to play but not in an overwhelming fashion. The bourbon note though is really present! Loved that about this beer. Mouthfeel was medium-thick.

This beer is deserving of its rating and Voodoo has yet again nailed another monster BA imperial stout.

This was AMAZING! tons of chocolate and bourbon barrel notes here! Sad that I traded off my earlier AB version before trying it....as this one was other-worldly!!! Hope to track this down again at some point!

On tap. Black color, no head. Aroma has sweet, spicy chocolate, peppers and coconut. Taste has peppers with medium to high chili heat, cinnamon and some bourbon in the background. Medium body and carbonation.

22oz bomber from batch#2 poured into a Spoonwood Brewing snifter:

Look: Pours a jet black color with about an 1/2 inch of head. Minor lacing present with little to no retention. Love the jet black color on this!

Smell: Strong notes of maple right off the bat followed by some bourbon and vanilla! Aroma is amazing!

Taste: All kinds of crazy good going on! Notes of maple, vanilla, and cinnamon very present! Serrano Chile Pepper heat pops in at the end and is very noticeable! Nice barrel notes rounds this thing out and makes this the perfect beer!

Feel: Medium to heavy bodied! Wish this was a touch thicker is about my only complaint.

Overall: Hands down the best beer I have ever had to date! This is crazy good! Soo many different things going on in this beer! If you can find a bottle of this in a trade I suggest you pick this up! Hope they brew this one again in the next barrel release!

Batch 2 drank in a snifter on 12/21/2016

Look-dark chocolate milk, a little lacing and nice tan head
Smell-cinnamon, chocolate and vanilla really burst
Taste-cinnamon, chocolate, peppers come through nicely with a little kick, and the vanilla all balances out well. I didn't get a ton of barrel but the combo was very tasty
Feel-thin, not sticky at all
Overall-a fantastic beer with incredible flavors
