Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a thin brown head that dissipates to a thin film with light lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, milk chocolate, bourbon and oaky vanilla. Flavor is dark toasted malt, bourbon, oak, vanilla, bitter chocolate and cinnamon. Light hoppy bitterness in the finish with lingering bourbon and dark malt. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A very well made bourbon barrel imperial stout, with great barrel character and deep malt to support the bourbon flavors. Body is a touch thin for the style, but everything else is so nice it's not an issue. The cinnamon is quite noticeable, but also well supported and balanced. High ABV well covered, but warming. Enjoyable.
