Bottle thanks to Rick (6/11/14). One of my highlights of the evening, this thick, flavorful brew (bourbon barrel aged) hit it on all levels. Dark muddy brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma was tons of roast malts, bourbon, whiskey, licorice and plenty of heat. Taste followed with more of the same, slick and slippery and very warming. Excellent.

Poured a gorgeous deep black body that let no light through with a finger of rich tan head that slowly receded. An excellent RIS that was very true to form. Scents of licorice, rich black coffee, roast malt, and a bit of rich dark chocolate. Overall impression is of a nice RIS aroma, that is true to style and complemented nicely in aroma by the addition of licorice root and coffee, the former of which takes a big role in the initial aroma. Flavor begins with a nice light licorice flavor, mingling with flavors of black coffee, and rich bittersweet milk and dark chocolate. Middle has a wonderful flavor of rich chocolate, mingling with coffee with cream, light licorice and black coffee. Finish is licorice, alcohol, vanilla, and a bit of rich chocolate. Aftertaste is licorice, black coffee, roasted malt and cocoa. Overall impression of flavor is a very nice RIS with most of the traditional flavors and a. IDE addition of licorice root and coffee that enhance the beer. Quite nice. Mouthfeel is heavy bodied with moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Very nice and true to form. Overall this is an excellent RIS, with the flavors and aromas of the style present in full form, complemented by a nice mouthfeel. A very nice beer and one of Four Peaks' best.
