Brewed by:
Side Project Brewing
Missouri, United States

Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 15.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
An expression of the beer we brew, the barrels we hand-select, and the time in which we patiently age, this is our non-adjunct blend of Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. Luxuriously decadent, yet refined and thoughtful, we pursue what this style was and is by sharing with you our purest blend of beer, from barrel with time.

This is the base imperial stout for the coffee stout series of the same name. Brewed with Golden Promise, oats and aged for 3 years in Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels that were initially filled with bourbon in 1974.

Pours of b1 and b2 during the 2nd Anniversary Party at the brewery. Pours like used motor oil with little to no head. Rich and malty on the nose, and the flavor comes across as balanced. Not overly sweet, with enough balance of the barrel and malt for both flavors to present themselves on the palate. I probably would rate these higher, had I not been drinking various Derivations at the same time.

Chocolate, toffee, and molasses on the palate. Bourbon rich and thick with a well-integrated barrel quality. Overall, a very balanced and well executed barrel aged stout.

BBT B2 - Bottle Pour @ Side Project Brewery 11-25-18

This beer pours like motor oil. The color is jet black. The taste was almost of dark chocolate, bourbon, and the slightest hint of smoke from the barrels. The feel made the beer for me. It was viscous and thick. Surprisingly this was much more complex and overall a tad better then BBT b1 for me. Cheers.

2018 on-site from SP Cellar.
L: Dark - very black with some brown. Little head, you can see the thickness if you swirl the glass.
S: Typical nose of a bourbon barrel aged beer, but more intense on the chocolate and vanilla,
T: Chocolate roast up front, a little bit of booze from the bourbon (in just the right way), and then some pure barrel at the end that I really enjoyed.
F: Thickest mouthfeel I think I've had on a beer, at least one with no flavors mixed in.
O: Perfect no-adjunct stout. Doubt you could make it more smooth.

BBT b2 on site at The Cellar.

Perfect beer. Tip of the spear of craft beer industry. Dark viscous with ring of foam around edge of glass. As you swirl the glass, you can see legs and impact viscosity has. Maybe even stained the glass! Aromas of robust chocolate, vanilla,... roast and malty with big barrel presence. Never had such complexity and array of flavors from a non-adjunct barrel aged beer. Didn't know it was possible. Thick mouthfeel. Perfect sipper.

I think this beer has ruined beer for me. I'll spend the foreseeable future chasing beers like this gem.
