Pretty much black, but some translucence apparent around the edges when backlit. Had a finger of mocha foam but it didn't last long. Modest activity is visible. no lacing.

Nicely balanced aroma consisting of malty sweetness and mellow coffee notes laying down the base and being joined by gentle roast, oak barrel, and even a little bit of bourbon. Very nice, and seeming to get more complex and nuanced each time I put my nose in the glass.

Tastes much like the nose with some sweet malty backbone joined by roasted barley, smooth bean, and bourbon soaked oak barrel. Nothing is overpowering, and it all plays well together. I'm impressed.

There is some moderate warming, but it's not hot. The body is full, thick and viscous. It's a really rich and smooth.

Thanks Adam, this is a great beer! I look forward to getting to know Central Waters better, and getting some more Perevian Morning in particular. i think I tasted it (and about 40 other awesome Imperial Stouts) at Darkness Day, but it was hard to appreciate the complexity and nuance in that context. This is a fantastic beer, and it's kinda nice that it is not too big (in comparison to some others) at just 8.5%.

12 oz bottle I received as an extra from StayWhatYouAre2 in a trade. Bottle is dated January of 2011. Poured into a snifter...

A - Pours a deep, rich dark brown color. Close to being black, but when held to the light, it is really brown. A creamy, light tan head forms about .5 fingers thick which receded to a collar and cap of the same color.

S - Roatsed coffee beans and bourbon come right out front. Some woody oak scents and a big dose of chocolate come through as well. Some sweet vanilla comes out as well adding nicely to the overall scent.

T - The taste is a bit less integrated than I would have hoped. Roasted coffee stands out along with a strong boubon presence. These two tend to dominate the palate here. Sweet bakers chocolate, vanilla, and some toffee come through as well. Some light roasted malts and an earthiness also come out.

M - Mouthfeel was quite thin for what I expected from this beer. Slick feeling medium to light bodied beer - more light than medium. Carbonation is also a bit high for this style which dtracted a bit for me. Not as creamy as I hoped.

O - Overall, it isn't bad, just not the best barrel aged beer I have had. The thinness ofthe body coupled with a less than integrated flavor profile detracted for me. BUT, I am damn glad I got to try it!
