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.

Pours out pitch black with a half a finger of off white head. Solid. On the thin side. Good dark chocolate, roasted malts bourbon notes. Medium to thin feel.

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.

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.
