Not sure why my beer review got deleted but all I had to say is I got it cheap (11.75 with 20 percent discount total 9.50) and pre aged (at least a year on it)

It was a very balanced Imperial stout smooth for the ABV and I would get it again if brewed.

Bottled on 7/18/13

A - Pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head. Lots of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is sweet chocolate and bourbon.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Upfront there is a strong mix of dark chocolate, coffee, and bourbon. The finish has more bourbon notes and a lingering booziness.

M - Full bodied with medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is smooth a sticky finish.

O - This is a very nice bourbon barrel stout. The flavors are very full and rich. Even with 18 months on it the finish was still on the hot side.
