Tasted at the brewery in 8oz snifter on 5/8/15. Very complex flavors of bourbon, wood, chocolate, coffee. Very rich and smooth mouthfeel.

An incredibly silky-smooth experience, with notes of bourbon, oak, vanilla, milk chocolate and caramel. A world class beer, though a bit too pricey for a second try.

Impressive complexity and mouthfeel. Just a hair drier than most imperial Stouts, but anything but thin. It's expensive yes. But it's also amazing.

oh, also has the best balance of barrel flavors with the base beer.

This beer is way overrated IMO. Too boozy with no depth of flavor. Glad I didn't pay $30 for it. It was a gift.

Poured from a bomber into a FW mini tulip....

L- Really nice..the very tiny bubbles hang around forever...a beautiful dark brown with a slight hint of cream. Really nice retention here...

S- Nutty, cherries, dark fruits....

T- Outstanding!! Just perfect...nice and sweet but not cloying at all. Caramel and a slight toffee with a tiny bitterness..very pleasing.

F- Very nice...smooth...maybe a bit thin but it doesn't detract at all....

0- Just fantastic! Alcohol is completely hidden in a nice sweet caramelly blanket that coats your tongue and slips away un-noticed. Glad I have one more....
