Didn't notice the "Bourbon Barrel Aged" paper sticker across the top until I took this out of the fridge; woot! Poured into a Reuben's Brew small snifter. Pours pitch black with a nice one finger milk chocolate brown head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet dark toasted malt, bourbon and marshmallows (?!?), light oxidation. Flavor is chocolate, toasted malt with light char, a hint of peanut butter, vanilla; finishes toasty, charry and slightly boozy. Great creamy body with good carbonation. A very rich, flavorful imperial stout that had surprises in the aroma and taste. I knew there were marshmallows and vanilla in the brew, but smelling it an aged stout was still a pleasant surprise. The light nutty flavor was also a surprise, if I was told that this had a few Reese's cups in the brew, I would believe it, but it is obviously a stray (but welcome) flavor from the other ingredients. An off beat and fun drinking stout; a bit on the boozy side, but with a great flavor that makes that a minor distraction. I liked this a lot, possibly my favorite Omnipollo to date. Since the original Hypnopompa had reported low carbonation, but lively head and body of this was a final pleasant surprise. Kudos to Omnipollo.
