Reviewed from (long-standing) notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Cycle Brewing snifter glass.

A: Deep black and opaque. Looks very thick, with barely any visible carbonation in there. Forms a thin tan head that stays around for a bit, but settles out fairly quickly.

S: You can smell the chocolate while pouring. Up close, there's chocolate, cacao, and bourbon. Deep roasted malts and oaken barrel lending vanilla and tannins. Really, really good aroma.

T: Chocolate – dark chocolate, cacao, and Dark Hershey's syrup. Bourbon and associated sweetness. Dark roasted malts and vanilla, oak tannins and thick malt sweetness. Hints of leather and mild dark fruits. But the chocolate and bourbon shine here. The finish is restrained bourbon, barrel, and residual chocolate sweetness.

M: A thick, sticky, viscous mouthfeel. The alcohol presence is restrained for style. Very low carbonation sensation adds to the thick body.

O: This was really, really tasty. For my tastes, it hits the perfect balance of barrel prominence without overwhelming all other flavors. A truly excellent big, thick, sticky barrel-aged imperial stout.

650ml bottle. served in a snifter glass.

Pours a dark black body, opaque in clarity as expected, one finger dark mocha head, a bit of retention, no lacing. Smells of a hefty chocolate milkshake aroma, bourbon heat, oak, mild roast, a bit of coffee. Very nice. Flavour is similarly chocolate-forward; I've never had Pritchard's Double Chocolate Bourbon but I'm getting a pretty good sense of what that is from this beer. A very nice base beer for the barrel-aging treatment. Chocolate brownies, bourbon, more chocolate, a bit of char and roast, espresso. Primarily a chocolate-based flavour, I don't know how to get more specific with this. Mouthfeel is thin bodied, appropriate carbonation, plenty of depth and flavour but just thin and feels a little bit lighter than it should. A very nice imperial stout with a particularly good barrel-aged treatment.

The highlight of this beer is the thick, full, rich mouthfeel. Exactly what a barrel aged stout should be. The palate is chocolate stout with a strong molasses finish. Overall, a very nice BA offering from Cycle.
