One of my absolute favorite beers! Had this on cask at New Holland and it tasted much creamier than the regular Dragon's Milk...tasted JUST like a chocolate shake!

22 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Chocolate, roasted coffee, earthy, vanilla, bourbon, oak, a little booze, toffee, caramel,

Taste: There is a nice balance between the stout and bourbon barrel flavors with a little heat in the end.

Mouthfeel: Silky, creamy, full bodied, smooth, a little booze, and low to medium carbonation.

Overall: For an 11% bourbon barrel aged imperial stout, this is one I'll have to buy and age for a bit. This was a nice sipper that got better when it warmed up a bit.
