Pours deep brown to black in color with a fizzy tan colored head that dissipates quickly. Looks relatively thin for a beer of this style. Finished with very nice lacings.

The immediate aroma is of oak, red wine, booze, figs and other dried dark fruits. Followed by a nostril lashing of sweet caramel malts.

The flavor is rich and roasted in the front, opening up to a middle full of milk chocolate and coffee. Finishes strong of roasted malts again and slightly bitter. it tastes good, but it lacks the body and depth you would want from a russian imperial stout, especially one that is barrel aged.

For a Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout, it is relatively small and thin, and the flavor profile is small and lacking. At $11.99 for a 16 oz bottle.... I expected this to be a much bigger, badder version of what it is. It's a good beer, but I wouldn't pay that much for it again even if they decided to sell it in a bomber sized bottle. Basically, if a brewery is going to sell their barrel aged product in some kind of elitist 16.09 oz bottle, it had better have twice the balls this one does.
