A- deep brown almost black with a thin mocha head
S- bourbon , charred wood, smoked grain, cocoa
T- heavily smoked malts, burnt brownies, harsh bourbon, oak
M- thick body and smooth mouthfeel followed by a harsh bite from the barrel. Strong presence of alcohol.
O- a lot of strong harsh flavors in this brew but I love it. Very smokey and hot. For a lack of better comparison it reminds me of Jack Daniels whiskey.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/17/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a small dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass with some alcohol legs. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, smoked meat, light char, toast, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, bourbon, and roasted earthiness; with a bit of booziness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roasted/smoked malt and barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, smoke, char, toast, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, bourbon, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, smoke, char, toast, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, bourbon, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and barrel flavors; with a nice roasted/sweetness/barrel flavor balance with no cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with only a moderate warming present after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent barrel aged imperial stout! All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted/smoked malt and barrel flavors; and fairly smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
