2018 latest release. Pours black in Color with great lacing, alcohol legs, prickly carbonation, and a light brown head.

Aroma is unique. Lots of fruity coffee, vanilla, citrus, warm spices, dark fruit, and booze.

Mouthfeel is lighter; not super viscous. Lots of fruity coffee, hops, dark fruits, and a little cocoa. This is by no means a classic bourbon barrel stout. Much lighter with more fruity character. Near the end of the sip some bourbon burn comes in. As the beer warms a palatable spice builds and lingers, which adds a uniqueness.

Overall, this is a unique beer but really only worth trying once. At 10$ a can, I would not buy again. The mouthfeel is too thin and there just isn’t enough richness for me. I see this pairing well with anything with a mole sauce it gets a 88/100.

Great taste of cocoa and bourbon originally had it aged for a few months so the bourbon and coa melded together perfectly and had a nice little kick from the chillies jet black and viscous as hell closer to drinkable syrup was so good
Fresh is not as smooth blenbd of flavors and this is the latest batch so I don't think they had the same barrels available. Still a smooth BA Imperial stout and nice robust flavor.
