10oz pour on draft at Lucky's Taproom - Dayton, OH. Served in a Madtree snifter glass.

Appearance: Black with a thin dark tan head that died back slowly. Some fine islands of lacing that slowly disappeared over the course of the evening.

Smell: Bourbon with a hint of vanilla. Very little else.

Taste: Bourbon, with quite a bit of malt sweetness to compliment it. Notes of vanilla, caramel, and a tiny bit of sour twang. Bourbon through and through.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and creamy. Very little carbonation. A little bit of a warming whiskey bite at the finish, but it was muted.

Overall / Drinkability: I've been hearing people rave about this beer in town and I can see why. It really is quite good. The bourbon is the focus of this beer, but it's not overpowering or dominating - it is rich, flavorful, and very tasty. Dangerously smooth as well, with the alcohol well hidden. My only minor issue with the beer is that it's not really a Russian Imperial Stout. That bitterness you find in a RIS is missing. This is a smooth sipping American Imperial Stout. It's dessert in a glass along with a post-dinner snifter of whiskey to boot. Went really well with a burger and ale-soaked chips, and probably would go well with a wide range of foods or just having a snifter all by itself to finish the evening. So high marks for being a well crafted beer, but it's not a RIS.

12.7 ounce bottle, 2017 vintage, label says 11.2% ABV. Served in a Warped Wing snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stuck around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like bourbon, vanilla, roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, and oak. Taste is similar to the aroma but there's the addition of some molasses, coffee and cream flavors, too. It's a mostly sweet tasting imperial stout, but the roastiness does seem to kick in more as the beer warms. There's also a good amount of barrel in the aroma and taste. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and smooth with a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a pretty good barrel aged imperial stout, glad I bought this! Definitely recommend it. $9.99 a bottle.

Had on tap. It is like they were attempting to keep the RIS robust nature with shifting the flavors to be brighter and sweeter like an imperial stout. This mostly happened, but with a huge amount of whiskey, wood, and malt up front. Supporting flavors include vanilla, molasses, coffee, though less than expected, more wood and more booze. Interesting take on the style, leaving no holes

Dark but not much head

Strong whiskey barrel up front nose.

Flavor is great. The barrel takes over but in the back it shows some base

Smooth but a tad thin

Overall reminds me of a slightly watered down bcbs. It's a good beer though.
