look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A. Pours a dark brown with no head present and this appears on the thinner side

S. Vanilla and Bourbon smells are inviting and have my hopes set high. Roasted chocolate is there in the back.

T. Sweet milk Chocolate with muted Vanilla and Scotch w/water flavors with alcohol burn lingering more then the other flavors.

M. Very light, lightly disappointed that it is not richer and fuller in body, it would really help the overall on this.

O. Good, but not great, was expecting more.

A very solid stout from Tyranena.

As Ron Burgandy would say: it is the color of fine mohogany. Not the pitch black of some impys, but let's wait until we taste it before getting too bent out of shape about this.

The smell shows considerable promise: complex blend of coffee char, molasses, vanilla and wood. No one note bowls you over; just a nice subtle blend.

The mouthfeel is a shade thinner than some of the category leaders, but it holds its own.

Lots to mull over on the taste buds. Some baker's chocolate, nutty breadiness, some mild coffee and vanilla. With repeated sips, the vanilla begins to club the other flavors into submission and the finish has a very mild acidic note that detracts slightly. That said, this is a solidly above average stout. Well worth a try.

A- Pours a pitch black color with a fairly thin brown head. Head is gone pretty quick, forms a ring around the edge and leaves very little lacing.

S- Smell is really nice. Picking up quite a bit of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and quite a bit of bourbon and wood too.

T- Taste is really nic too. Follows the nose quite well. A great taste from the barrel. A good amount of vanilla, bourbon and roasted malts.

M- A little bit thin in body for my liking. Medium in body and carbonation was good.

O- This is a very solid brew for sure.

Not much in the way of looks. No head, some lacing.

Wonderful smelling. Vanilla, oak.

Lots of sweetness. Vanilla dominates, takes it to a whole new level. Not the artificial kind either, just real sweet vanilla. Some chocolate roastiness in there. Would guess at a higher ABV than what it actually is just because of the -bal factor.

Nice thick mouthfeel, lower end of carbonation.

A real vanilla treat, bring this one back Tyranena! Wooo!

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Received this from Phelps in the Tickers BIF.

A: Black as night in the glass. The slightest wisp of a mocha head that still leaves awesome lacing.

S: A nice subdued bourbon aroma. A very nice vanilla coming through. Chocolate mingles very well with the bourbon and vanilla. A very slight roasted coffee comes through.

T: Bittersweet milk chocolate upfront. Vanilla and bourbon come into play and blend very well with a very mild roastiness. No alcohol is detectable. Just a light butterscotch bourbon finish.

M: Medium bodied, very light for an Imperial Stout. Low carbonation. Smooth. Would have liked it to be fuller and creamier.

O: A very good beer. The chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon come together very nice. Very well balanced.

P: 12 fl oz bottle in to an imperial pint glass

A: SRM is dark brown/black. Tan head is 1 in., tight bubbles, recedes to line rim of glass. Medium lacing. Nearly opaque.

S: Chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla mix with roasted malt.

T: Coco nibs and vanilla initially hit, with roasted malts following and finishes with a bourbon note.

M: Medium body. Complexity in flavor gives a unique mf. Sweet, bitter, and bourbon/wood notes give contrasting points of reference.

O: Excellent use of ingredients. Fantastically balanced and very, very tasty. One of my favorites.
