L: pours light brown with a film of head. Looks black in the glass.
A: nice chocolate and smooth bourbon. The aroma is a bit subtle, but nice.
T: subtle coffee and bourbon, nice chocolate mix too. But like the nose nothing exploding, but good.
F: smooth but pretty thin for a Ba stout.
O: well done Ba stout, but nothing to write home about.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 13F). AROMA: very complex cocoa, coffe and bourbon barrel aromas. medium alcohol aroma. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: opaque jet black with a very tanned head. medium head retention. TASTE: complex flavour with cocoa very present, slight dried grapes flavour, coffe and bourbon. medium hop flavour that lingers towards the end accompanied with rostiness, bitterness and slight warming character. balanced malt flavour with medium-high bitterness. PALATE: very-full body with a velvety texture. gentle warmth from alcohol. medium carbonation. OVERALL: a very complex, special, imperial stout with a plethora of flavours, maybe a bit sweet from the added cocoa but nonetheless highly recommended.

Solid BA Stout that is readily available. Love the richness and slightly sweet Bourbon character.

Double Barrel? I don't see that anywhere on here, and I don't see a bourbon barrel on here to review. Cork smells of deep rich bourbon

A- Pretty dark for a smaller brewery bourbon stout. Not too thin. Thin ring of lacing no legs.

S- Oak, malts, nice base RIS characteristics. Not much bourbon, but more oak.

T- Oak barrel RIS, with some bourbon sting; not too high on that though. Very nice malt profile. So rich and creamy.

M- Very rich and creamy; the M is medium to medium thick

O- A well done barrel RIS here!
