Long time want that is letting me down. Looks good on the pour and a great nose, but there in an astringent flavor that goes on for days lingering long after the malt, heat, and sweet aspects have faded away.

2008 Bourbon Barrel aged version

A- Black with mocha colored head. Good head retention/lacing,

S- Chocolate, sweetness.

T- Sweet chocolate, roasted malts. Hints of coffee. Bourbon barrel finish. Boozy.

M- Extremely thick mouthfeel.

D/O- Drinkability is low but a pretty special aged beer here. It reminded me a lot of '10 BCS. After I finished this I couldn't stomach another impy stout, even though there were others I wanted to try.
