A very solid BA stout with Coffee. Different coffee used each time it's brewed from what I understand. Good solid coffee and barrel notes here. Nice

Dark Black Velvety Appearance

Rich Coffee and bourbon scent

Awesome dark roast coffee flavor with sweetness coming from the chocolate and slight smokey flavor from the whiskey

So thick and heavy this beer is definitely a dessert drink or a special treat

Overall an EPIC imperial stout thats flavors are incredible

Poured from 22-ounce bomber into a rocks glass. Thick, lightproof brownish-black pour which a thin tan head. Big aromas and flavors of roasted malt, dark cocoa, coffee, molasses, and licorice, with plenty of whiskey-barrel character that does not overpower the other characteristics. Silky mouthfeel, smooth and easy drinking, alcohol warmth without any harshness or burn. Finishes cleanly, with a tinge of sour fruit and tannic astringence. This is as good as it gets.
