Got this one from 7clutch in a recent box. Cheers man!

From a bomber into a snifter
Imperial stout aged in Prichard's double chocolate bourbon barrels

APPEARANCE: Pitch black opaque pour yields a 2+ finger, medium looking, fizzy, mocha colored head with decent retention. Head makes more than enough fizzy noise. Pitch black body with no carbonation evident. Head fades to a full cap and clings to the sides of the glass. A bit flat by they end, unfortunately. A slight ring remains leaving a few falling dots of lacing. Great color but too fizzy a head.

SMELL: Big nose of bourbon, oak, sweet cream and vanilla, coconut with some wonderful milk and pure chocolate aromas. Smells great. Bold and complex, with notes of toffee and roasted malt under the bourbon and chocolate heavy aromas. Great.

TASTE: Lots of bourbon, oak and chocolate flavors up front. Bold beginning, with coconut and toffee sweetness as well. Big, bold and flavorful finish of bourbon, coconut, sweet vanilla and milk chocolate, oak, toffee, some pure bitter baker's chocolate and some burnt and roasted malts. Decadent. Absolutely lovely.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. A little prickly on the palate, unfortunately, only semi-creamy, goes down fine with a bit of a scratch and finishes sticky. Some heat lingers.

OVERALL: Awesome. Decadent and excellent. Could use a slightly creamier palate, which would pull the flavors together to perfection, but otherwise, this is a superb creation that brought a huge smile to my face. Lots of wonderful barrel character with chocolate and roasted components that work so well. Would love to drink this again. Thanks again 7clutch. This was spectacular.

Nice nose of boozy chocolate, taste follows expectations, and it fills out the palette. Some pruney dried fruit character.

Pours thick black opaque in color. Smells of chocolate brownies. Taste is chocolate decadence with the oaky barrel character coming thru at the end. Wonderful balance of the booziness with the beer. Best Cycle beer I have had and they have done some great one.

Very similar to Rare DOS, just softer barrel and more sweetness. Still has the hearty char and heavy roast, just with a plate of brownies to the side.
