Grabbed a few bottles of this at the brewery. A Russian Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon Barrels and used in a few Sams Adams experiments.

A- A hearty pour reveals a pitch black beer, nice mocha head almost two fingers, with good retention.

S- Big bourbon notes, heavy vanilla and chocolate

T- Lots of bourbon, a little smoky, dry finish, tannins, vanilla. The bourbon stands-out as the dominate flavor, all the other flavors are slightly subdued.

M- Low carbonation and a thin mouth-feel

D- A solid ba stout, nothing worth noting other than the use of the bourbon barrels. The base could have more body and more overall oomph of flavor. Fairly mediocre.
