I had this on tap at the Central Coast Brewing tasting room in San Luis Obispo. It was offered only in 4 oz. glasses.

Appearance: Very dark with a thick foamy head that remains for awhile.

Smell: I could clearly smell the booziness/bourbon as I slowly brought the 4 oz. glass closer to my nose for a sniff.

Taste: The taste follows the smell. Bourbon, dark chocolate, coffee. Warm booziness as it goes down. This beer is strong, but it is delicious. Really. It's delicious. Excellent taste.

Mouthfeel: Not too much carbonation. Goes down smooth.

Overall: I love this beer. It's awesome. I can't wait to have it again.

On draft at the SLO brewery in an 8oz glass. Great balance in flavors. Not too much bourbon. Nose is bourbon, caramel, chocolate, coffee. Very little carbonation. This one is a slow sipper. Overall a very well done BA stout.

Bourbon barrel aged imperial stout, first I've seen from this brewery and well worth the wait. Great bourbon aroma and a taste that matches the aroma. Great offering in a bottle from a very little known brewery outside of the 805 area code. Will definitely seek this out in the future and also look for other barrel aged offering from them.
