Reviewed from notes. On tap at Peg's Catina during their end of the world party on December 21st, 2012. I was lucky enough to get the last glass of this fine brew of the night. They served it to me in a Cycle Brewing Snifter.

This dark mysterious liquid poured a solid black leather color. Were you expecting any other color? Don't hold this beer up into the light or you'll go blind. Light will bounce off this beer's solid black color. On top was a 1/4 of an inch dark tan almost coffee colored head of foam. Good retention that left behind a string of foamy rings along the side and only a few blots of lace around the glass.

It had a very well balanced aroma. The first two aromas that came me was of course the bourbon and charred oak. The bourbon wasn't over powering. It was very pleasant. Quickly following the bourbon was the rich aroma of roasted coffee beans. After the coffee beans had their time in the sun, in comes the dark chocolate, roasted malt, black cherry, raisins, and a nice whiff of vanilla. Very nice aroma!

The taste was surprisingly not overpowering or boozy. It was very well balanced. The first taste was, you guessed it, the bourbon. The beer didn't let the bourbon run away with the taste. Following the bourbon was a some charred oak, roasted malt, roasted coffee beans, molasses, bitter dark chocolate, black cherry, and then the taste finishes up with a subtle taste of vanilla to send this beer off. Very nice roasted bourbon taste.

The mouthfeel was full bodied and a bit on the dry side. It had a nice full flavored sweet aftertaste of bourbon, charred oak, black cherry, dark chocolate, and vanilla. It completely masked the ABV %.

Another wonderful beer from Peg's that night. I wish that I could have got another glass of this super fine brew. It was a very well balanced bourbon barrel aged Imperial Stout. It didn't let anything completely take over the beer. The only thing that was out of control in this beer was the beer's rich flavors and that's a good thing. Is it worth a shot? You bet your ass it is!
