Well balanced, bourbon is there on the nose and the taste. Medium mouth feel. It poured dark with a small head that lingered. A good solid BBA RIS. I will buy this again.

Picked up a bomber from TW Arrowhead 4-21-17 for $14.99. 2016 edition.

Beer poured black with a great tan head with the initial pour.

Nose is a hint of bourbon, baker's chocolate, mocha.

Taste had a very slight touch of bourbon, but is more baker's chocolate forward. Hints of coffee appear to form a nice mocha impression. Finish is hopped enough to balance the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall this is a very tasty brew that was a pleasure to have!

Nice thick Chocolaty stout..good favor but not a ton of Barrel. Drinks pretty smooth, good solid Imperial stout for sure but compared to others I have had in the style it falls a bit short.
