Notes: Aged in Heaven Hill and Knob Creek Bourbon barrels. Warm notes of chocolate and cherry are encased by bourbon on the nose. A subtle rye spice is present mingling with the chocolate, cherry and vanilla. Perfect amounts of char and oak complete the richness. 2-row Maris Otter, Crystal malt 60, chocolate malt, roasted barely and flaked oats. Hexx oko caribe chocolate, Madagascar vanilla beans, dark cherries and Magnum hop.

16oz bottle. Wax dipped over cap. No dating information found. Label has ABV% at 11.9%.
Black colored body, with thin red mahogany back lit edge. Short lived tan head, which results in an island and very thin ring. Small spots of lacing left behind.
Aroma is subtle, with dark roasted chocolate malts, oats, a whiff of oak, and a whiff of cherry.
Taste is much more expressive than the nose. The bright cherry mixes so well with the chocolate malts, with the bourbon barrel enveloping both. Vanilla and oak also figure in, along with a hint of rye spice. Bourbon soaked chocolate covered cherries in the aftertaste. Overall the taste is sweet, and not overly heavy, but the flavors are full and bold.
Syrup heavy mouth feel, with some stickiness. Rye spice and the higher ABV% cause a little tongue sting. Supportive carbonation.
So pleased that the flavors are so much more expressive than the subdued nose. A real sipping beer, both for savoring and for extending the time spent with this brew.

Look: dark brown almost black in color with a wispy head.

Smell: chocolate is prominent with some softer cherry tones,

Taste: big malt base with dark chocolate, some cherries, brown sugar, moderate bitterness, and a bit of alcohol warming.

Feel: heavy in body. Smooth throughout with a long aftertaste.

Overall: a slow sipping big imperial stout that has a nice flavor profile. Really satisfying.
