22oz bomber, 8oz pour, scant lacing, thick legs during the tasting. Black, opaque liquid.

Four years on this bottle and still hot. Bourbon, burnt malt, spice and a bit of earth.

First sip carries through the bourbon, a bit thin compared to the base brew. Subtle char, oat malts balanced by some nice hop bitterness. The barrel really adds to the complexity.

Full body, nicely carbonated, a bit chewy.

Wonderful take on the base brew. The Canadian barrel is delicious and creates a nice unique take on an already fine imperial stout.
