I've decided that imperial stouts, particularly ones aged in bourbon barrels is not my thing. Too sweet, and obviously bourbon flavor comes out. I guess this is a good beer for some, but I'll pass and stick with the standard stout and porter.

On draft - 2016 edition

Black, opaque, thin tan head that fades. Pungent roasty aroma - bitter cocoa, some licorice, touch of bourbon. Similar flavors in the taste. Bold, somewhat sweet. Thick, slick mouthfeel.

1 PT 6 FL OZ bottle
Served in a snifter

This beer pours black and is topped with less than an inch of mocha head that leaves no lacing.

I smell bourbon notes, caramel, vanilla.

The taste is smooth. The bourbon characteristics are subdued. The flavors meld very well to make this dangerously drinkable.

Medium mouthfeel

While it's not as good as I remember it from a couple years ago, I is a lethal beer. The warming effects make more than up for it.

Beer pours black with a dark tan head. The smell is coffee, pecan and alcohol. The flavor follows the smell but has the swallow of bourbon. Not as harsh as some others but it's their and I'm not a huge fan. The feel is nice other than the swallow but overall a really good beer at 13%.

2017 version
Look: Dark, dark brown on the pour with some translucency. Light is able to penetrate around the edges of the glass. One finger head with super small, tightly packed bubbles that dissipates into a small island patch. Curtain-like cascading legs and weakly clinging lacing on the swirl.

Smell: Some nutty barrel notes wafting out just on the pour. Some alcohol evident on the nose, with almond, vanilla, marzipan, and candied spiced pecans. A nice sweet nose on this one.

Taste: A balanced symphony of sweet amaretto, bourbon, and rye combine with slightly roasted chocolate drizzled pecan nuttiness. Earthy, nutty roast is present, but doesn't lean toward the typical coffee notes. This imperial has a dry, spicy finish after the initial sweetness up front. The alcohol becomes more apparent as the beer warms.

Feel: Medium, with a creamy mouth feel. The subtle carbonation doesn't get in the way of the stout as you roll it around your mouth.

Overall: An interesting take on your typical barrel aged imperial, with not a huge amount of the usual coffee and chocolate notes. This beer is well made, unique, and worth a try.
