Pours a somewhat matte black color. Thin tan head dissipates leaving a thin ring of foam along the outside of the beer. Beer appears rather thick and viscous.

Smell has notes of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, and roasted malts. Its like a boozy brownie - really nice.

Taste follows the nose with lots of fudgey chocolate, vanilla, oak, roasted malts, with a bit of heat towards the back. Lovely smooth oaky finish on the back end.

Feel is medium to full bodied, smooth, and velvety. Mild carbonation.

Overall a very well crafted barrel aged RIS from Warped Wing - quite impressively done and well worth seeking out for the BA stout fan.

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.

L - pours black with toasty brown fringes. Tan head forms a handful of large bubbles that mesmerizingly drift to the edges of the glass.

S - immediate bourbon on the nose with a lactosey milkiness. Coffee, dark chocolate, and booze. Getting some musty, aged cheese in there too. Interesting.

T - well now that's a strong whiskey barrel-aged brew. Lots of rye and grain characteristics that leans more heavily toward liquor than stout. Vanilla bean and a dry hoppy crispness. Earthy barrel presence and distinct wood chips. Burnt black coffee on the finish.

F - pointy and sharp. Flavor is laser-focused and the mouthfeel carries that flavor straight to the tastebuds in the most hands-off way possibly. A smooth and sensual delivery system for hot goods.

O - this is an aggressive barrel brew. The bourbon character does not mess around to the point where this feels like a more wholesome, full-bodied whiskey with added coffee and chocolate.

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

If this smelled like it taste it would be a 5/5 but it smells like a 20% abv beer and drinks like a 7% abv beer delicious all around I really enjoyed this one
