Pours midnight black color with a inch+ tan head. Nice lacing as the head fades.

Smell has notes of rye, whisky, chocolate, vanilla, barn leather, coffee and smoke. Very intense and inviting

The taste follows with a very smooth balanced attach of rye flavors, dark chocolate and sweet vanilla. The carbonation is persistent but not overbearing or light. The Alcohol cant be missed at 11%ABV but is more integrated than some of the other beers of this style.

If is not heavy on the palate which is more normal for this style. Dry and complex.

Overall One of the better beers in this category available. Looking for the new release coming out soon.

Poured into a 16 oz snifter not sure when it was bottled. Pours a very attractive almost completely black with a 2 inch light tan head that leaves a few patches of lace behind.

Smell is smoky, vanilla, leather, tobacco, coffee, and bourbon.

Taste follows vanilla, smoke, leather, tobacco, coffee, and very aggressive bourbon and that isn't a complaint.

Mouthfeel is a tad thin for the style, almost moderate carbonation, a little dry, and pretty good drinkability for its heft.

Overall this is a very nice BA Imperial Stout, very complex beer and different. Well done thx @jzeilinger.

Bottle stamped 'vintage 2015' and opened January 2016
Cost: $6 for the bottle
Temperature: cold

Look: frothy, root beer-meringue head of foam. Just a root-beer-y appearance all around.
Smell: barely a trace of rye and coffee. Was it too cold out the bottle?
Taste: Alcohol burn with dark cacao nibs, roasted espresso beans, rye, and copper. Yes - a boozy, metallic baker's chocolate, basically.
Feel: meh - I wanted thicker. Not thin, but too medium for this style.
Overall: VASTLY overpriced at $6 for the bottle. Improved as it warmed up. I'd have it again at room temperature, and for half the price.
