Had it on tap alongside a World Wide Stout. This was a little better. A little smoother. Alcohol (18.9%) was fairly well hidden. Not terribly complex but a solid barrel aged imperial stout.

Maybe my expectations were too high but this wasn't anything great. High abv status quo bb stout. Very little maple came through and watery thin. It's on part with dragons milk (which isn't bad). But at $20/bottle I'll pass again.

Reviewed on 2/5/17
2015 bottle in a Bruery Tulip

L - Pours a dark dark chocolate brown with a thin espresso head
S - I get rich dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar. Very similar to Black Tuesday
T - The taste is cocoa powder, chocolate, bourbon, a little sweet vanilla, with a bitter ethanol finish
F - medium body and a pretty smooth and creamy texture
O - There is just not a lot of depth. The initial taste is good, but is quickly taken over by the alcohol burn. And this bottle has a year on it.

A pathetic pop of the cork.Pour a very thick black body with a modest dark tan head. Smells sweet like maple syrup. Taste: definetly sweet, bitter dark chocolate with hints of vanilla & barrel flavors. Mild alcohol burn. This was the 2016 edition rated at 13.8 ABV. Mild alcohol. Urn. An excellent stout!

Damn good stuff but Pricey, paid 19.99 probably wont purchase again unless found cheaper.

Enjoyed it, decent bourbon influence.
