650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Almost inky. Small khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Really bourbony. Fudgy chocolate. Vanilla. A little licorice.

Taste - More chocolate than the nose. The bourbon kicks in. Sharp woody bourbon. Licorice. Bitter coffee finish. Pretty sweet.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Boozy. Nothing terribly offensive for the style, though.

Overall - Really good stuff. Good barrel and a tasty stout behind it.

Inky black with a thin khaki head. Big oak and bourbon nose. Tastes of molasses and brown sugar as well. On the sweeter side. Little to no carbonation.

Overall a very nice beer that truly showcases barrel aging.

Big thanks to iguenard for sharing the bottle!

Pours dark with a thin mocha head with not much in retention or lacing. Nice nose of roasted malt, espresso, molasses, bourbon. The taste is of roasted malt, char, bourbon with hot alcohol and bittering hops on the finish. Thick and creamy. Not bad!

2017 Cubs NLDS victory brew! Aged a year and exceptionally smooth!

Very chocolatey and easy to put down. Warmed up nicely! I’ve had better, I’ve had worse. Solid night cap.

Got this from a friend, absolutely blown away. Perfect level of barrel on a wonderfully smooth imperial stout. Amazing integration that drinks really easy for 12%. Glad i got to try this one
