22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had this on 2/20/16.

Pours a dark brown, opaque, with a small head and a small ring of foam remaining. Smell leads with the bourbon, then lightly roasted malt, vanilla, oak, some chocolate, toffee. The taste is a little more balanced between the bourbon and the malt, vanilla, some oak, brown sugar, some caramel, light bitterness on the finish. Smooth, good level of carbonation, thin feeling.

This was good and I enjoyed it, but it really needed a more robust malt base to give it a more full bodied feel. Those Pappy barrels can't be that easy to come by, they deserved a little better here.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled in Fall 2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger fairly dense tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, and toasted oak; with light coconut, butterscotch, dark fruit, cocoa, coffee, and oak/toasted earthiness. Some light booziness shows up as it warms. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, and toasted oak; with light coconut, butterscotch, cocoa, coffee, and oak/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate bourbon/oak spiciness and slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, toasted oak, light cocoa/coffee, and oak/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; with a great malt/oak spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, moderately creamy/silky, and slightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with a light-moderate warming lingering after the finish; with minimal booziness. Overall this is a very nice barrel aged Russian Imperial stout. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. This was not as roasty as most imperial stouts I’ve had; but still had a good amount, with a really great amount of balanced barrel flavors against the malt sweetness. A very enjoyable offering.

A - Pours a very dark brown with a sturdy two finger tan head.

S - Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, and toffee.

T - The taste is heavy bourbon with vanilla and some light dark chocolate. Some alcohol heat in the finish.

M - Medium/light bodied with medium carbonation. Very soft and creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is on the thin side, but the flavors are spot on. Definetly worth seeking out.

Thinner than expected--very little head after pour. The carbonation is a bit high though, giving it cola feel. BBA reminiscent of the flavored in those from Central Waters BBA stout. Better than some. Overall glad I tried, but falls short of remarkable. Base beer might need more body for next batch.
