750ml bottle poured into a snifter, 2013 vintage

A- pours pitch black in color with a creamy two-finger khaki colored head that retains nicely after the pour, leaving some lacing behind

S- lots of dark fruit aroma up front with notes of fig, raisin & date. Toasted chocolate malt gives deep aroma of dark chocolate and caramel, the bourbon adds notes of barrel juice, smoked wood, oak barrel & vanilla. Coffee has faded by now, but still adds some earthy and herbal coffee notes

T- dark fruit flavors of fig & raisin up front are quickly complemented by a sharp woodsy bitterness that gives notes of bourbon, oak, vanilla and caramel. Whipping cream sweetness leads to a slightly bourbony finish with lingers of herbal and earthy coffee

M- medium viscous body with moderate low carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a chewy slightly warming finish

O- this still tastes great even after a couple of years of aging

750 mL corked bottle poured I a stemmed glass. Outstanding balance of bourbon and coffee in an imperial stout.

As expected, pours a deep dark black with outside edges of deep, deep brown. Minimal head, which leaves quickly. Very light lacing. Aroma is upfront with bourbon, then a bit of coffee and a touch of dark chocolate. Taste is a nice balance of chocolate, coffee and bourbon, blending quite well together. The high ABV tends to make the bourbon a little more prominent that I would like. This one is definitely a sipper. As it warms the alcohol lets itself be a little more known and the bourbon aftertaste a little more prominent. Mouthfeel has a touch of alcohol burn, but not too overpowering. Enjoy slowly and if it is a 750ml, share with a friend.......or two.....

Amazing mouthful. Beautiful opaque black color. Sweet coffee, more subdued chocolate, sweet. Large bottle to be shared, definitely a sipping beer. One of my favorites!

Poured a black body with one finger khaki head that died quick with no lace. Aroma of coffee, wood, booze, chocolate and touch of blueberry from the sidamo coffee bean (not nearly as prevelant as regular sidamo stout). Solid build and sturdy, the roasted coffee malts mix with some sweetness and the wood adds a boozy, vanilla, bourbon type feel. Smooth and full bodied, this is a pretty solid sipper.
