Black with a moderate tan foam head.

Smell is cola, raisin, vodka, and root beer barrel candies.

Taste is cola, smoke, charred oak, prune, vodka, and herbs. This is relatively hot. Is the vodka here on purpose? Wtf? This is the first time I've ever thought of vodka while drinking beer.

Feel is the best part about this brew--thick and luscious, velvety but dry.

Nice bourbon barrel aged milk stout. Milk stout flavor still comes through nicely; barrel aging doesn't overpower. A bit of coffee notes in flavor. Very good.

This is a perfectly aged imperial stout. It's hard to find but when you do, you're gonna pay far less than what it's worth. This isn't yet in the "whale" category of beers but might be someday. Grab one while you can before it starts selling on the Web for $300+. If you see 2, buy them both. Enjoy one right away and save the other for when you want to impress someone later. It's really that good!

Poured from 750ml into goblet glass, bottle date and age unknown.

Poured Slightly hard down the middle, .5 fingers of brown foam, dissipated quickly, very slight lacing from leftovers.

Very dark brown/black color.

Nose is good amount of bourbon/booze, some chocolate and almost coffee notes.

Very thick, lingering mouthfeel, initial tongue hit there is almost an effervescence to it, slight tingle.

Initial flavors of sweetish dark chocolate, slight coffee almost. Second glass more lingering booziness.

Overall a very very good stout, first bourbon barrel milk stout I've had.

On tap at The Beer Market in Henrietta, NY.

This lil thang pours a pretty dark black, with a small head, and no lacing.

Smells like vanilla, bourbon, chocolate syrup, and marshmallow fluff.

This is less bold than I expected, with a more subtle balanced feel to it. There's lots of vanilla- sort of a marshmallow like feel- with subtle bourbon, Hershey's, lactose, and dark fruit. I'm yearning for roasted malt to balance it out.

This is medium bodied- it's possibly a little too light bodied for a BA imperial milk stout. It's definitely super creamy though which I dig.

Quite nice but not great.
