look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

poured from a 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Snifter in the sink. No bottled dating could be found

Poured jet black with a caramel colored 1-2 fingered head. This thinned out to a covering quite quickly.

Smell was amazing. Reminded me of Thirsty Dog's Wulver. Vanilla, dried fruits, bourbon. Very appetizing.

Taste was also excellent. All the above flavors came through. A very enjoyable drink to finish off the evening.

Mouth was a bit of a letdown. Though I certainly enjoyed rolling the beer around my tongue, the beer was a bit on the thin side, and did not get that comforting alcohol soft burn feeling that I get with the better BBA stouts.

Overall, I can certainly recommend this beer. Not the best BBA stout out there, but certainly very enjoyable.

I sampled a 12 oz bottle of this beer poured into a snifter at cellar temperature. The beer pours a dark cola brown with minimal tan head foaming up and fading quickly to nothing.
Aroma is dark brown sugar and molasses, some burnt coffee and a little vanilla and bourbon. The nose is not overpowering but is enjoyable.
First sip reveals a thick body with mild rolling carbonation. The beer exhibits a rich hearty texture.
Flavor is all malt with molasses and coffee grounds mixing with roast malt and some lingering bourbon on the finish.
I dont really get much from the booze or any hops to speak of in this beer.
There is a bit of stickiness on my lips and palate after each swallow and the roasted malt lingers too.
I enjoy this beer and find it highly drinkable. I would buy it again if I found a bottle.

This was poured into a Dogfish Head Signature glass.

A: Poured into the glass with a nice oily black color. The tan head that resulted was small and dissipated quite quickly.

S: I definitely get the bourbon in the nose with hints of dark fruit.

T: Bourbon taste right away on the front end, with the dark fruit and a little booziness lingering at the end. Pretty solid!

M: The mouthfeel on this guy is ok. I was hoping for something creamier and smoother.

O: Overall, this beer is pretty solid. I don't think I'll be buying a case of it anytime soon, but nonetheless a solid bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout.
