Perfect 5 BA Imperial Stout on par with the best in the industry. It may be better than BCBS in the fact that it is slightly lower ABV making it more approachable for one to finish alone in an evening. This beer is truly world class.

Poured into a Duvel snifter glass.

A - 5 - You couldn't ask for a more perfect stout. This thing pours an oily, viscous jet-black straight out of the bottle. Forms a finger of quickly dissipating, burnt orange colored head. Low head potential and retention, to be expected with the viscosity and ABV of the beer. Non-existent lacing.
S - 4.5 - Lots of malt, medium sweet chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee, vanilla and TONS of maple-woody bourbon.
T - 5 - Damn. This beer is wicked. HUGE amount of malt, medium bittersweet chocolate, light coffee, butter, maple soaked wood, brown sugar, toffee, caramel, vanilla bean, and a lot of delicious, warming bourbon. Surprisingly with all these flavors, the alcohol is decently concealed and the brew isn't too boozy.
F - 5 - Extremely viscous, thick and oily. Full bodied brew. Double the viscosity of coffee creamer or heavy whipping cream.
O - 5 - The IDEAL bourbon barrel aged Russian imperial stout. Nuff' said.

Great, GREAT BA stout. I've never had the regular version, but now I'd like to try. Poured from a 22oz bomber, super dark pour and a very small 1/2in of espresso-y head. I told my fiancé that this beer took my mouth on a journey- it is really surprisingly complex- bourbon hit first with some woody oak. The chocolate and some light vanilla were next, followed by what tasted like an espresso shot - ton of espresso flavor and then finished with a really nice bitter coffee taste at the end. I loved this beer and will definitely buy another.
