2018 vintage
12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours deep black in color with a thin creamy dark brown head that has short retention and reduces to a ring around the edge of the glass

S- bold herbal espresso notes up front give notes of red berries. Dark chocolate, brown sugar and vanilla mix with barrel juice ad oak. There's also a big char and roasted malt note that is very similar to KBS

T- dark chocolate and roasted malt up front quickly give way to bold espresso notes, as well as sweet notes of caramel and vanilla. Mid-palate gives a strong barrel note of bourbon, which enhances the vanilla note as well. The finish gives equal parts bourbon, coffee and charred malt

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel that continues into a slightly warming finish

O- bold coffee and bourbon barrel make for a well balanced BA stout that hides the booze fairly well

Thanks to thebeers for this one, from NBS BIF#8. 12oz bottle poured into 14oz tulip. Poured a solid black color,with just a thin cap of tan head that low retention and no lacing.

The aroma was bourbon forward, with a nice base stout scent. Thankfully,the coffee was understated. Pretty similar on the tongue, bourbon, beer, very light coffee, and just a bit of alcohol on the finish.

The body was nice, smooth and even, with a slightly sweet finish. Drinkability is good for a big stout, but still a beer to take some time with. Overall, a nice example of the style, certainly worth trying if you see it.

Weyerbacher Sunday Morning Stout, 12.7% ABV. Pours black with a slight ring of tan head. Nose is bourbon, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Taste follows with coffee and bourbon up front, and a moderate bitter close. Mouthfeel is excellent, overall outstanding.

This isn't the worst beer I've ever had, but its fairly close.

I taste coffee, vanilla, and an overpowering thick taste bordering on stale water.

The look was dark and thick, similarly opaque to Guiness, but when tipped it leaves a dark film briefly on the glass.
The smell could easily distinguish the coffee, and what I would describe as a "woody" odor, not unpleasant.

The initial taste was coffee, with vanilla and that wood like taste, but I didnt enjoy the after effects. Heavy on the tongue.

A very nice, solid bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout - flavors just didn’t quite mix and blend well enough for me to give it a higher rating. Nice deep, dark brown color with lots of tan head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells wonderful - deep dark coffee and hints of dark chocolate and bourbon. Tastes of bourbon, wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, malt and caramel. The only problem is, there seems to be a slight imbalance between the bourbon, malt and coffee. In the end it seems a little too sweet and takes away from the rich flavor and consistency. High ABV is quite well hidden. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel and good carbonation. I would definitely buy more of this, it just doesn’t quite compare to some other great imperial stouts like Speedway’s, or either the KBS or Breakfast Stout from Founders.

Poured black and thick with a dark tan head that had some bubbles dancing on top. The head quickly dissipated to nothing. The aroma is bourbon, coffee and dark chocolate. Strong boozy taste of bourbon and coffee, followed by char, caramel, vanilla and chocolate. This has complex layers of flavor and needs to be sipped slowly to enjoy it all. The body has a bit of oiliness to it and is heavy with low carbonation.
