Malt and bourbon start off this solid entry in the BBA stout field. Very smooth but not assertive enough on the tongue. Needed more coffee, chocolate or maybe... bourbon!

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a quarter finger brown head with good retention and nice lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, bourbon, dark dried fruit and vanilla; somewhat boozy. Flavor is dark toasted malt with light char, bourbon, milk chocolate, caramel, figs, mild oak. Medium bodied with moderate creaminess and silky mouth feel. An exemplary and reasonably complex barreled stout, with great dark fruit and chocolate notes as well as the expected clear notes of bourbon. Mouth feel is very nice and enhances the dark flavors. The malt depth and rich flavor are what I hope for from a Russian imperial stout and this is a fine one. Great introduction to the brewery. This is 2019 version weighing in at 13.8%.

Zipline The Stout, 14.3% ABV. Pours black with a real nice two finger foamy brown head that dissipated quickly, leaving little lacing. Nose is moleasses, bourbon, vanilla, and roast malt. Taste follows, plus dark fruit and oak, slightly sweet, moderately bitter. Quite complex, changing with warming. Excellent smooth and dry mouthfeel. Overall outstanding.
