Notes: Aged in bourbon barrels, our 11% Imperial Stout Bravo Tango, is dark and smooth with a mélange of bold deep flavors. Notes of rich dark chocolate and espresso, with undertones of dark fruit, oak, and molasses.

A: opaque; very dark brown in color; with a fairly aggressive pour, a 2 finger mocha head that receded to a wispy cap; nice rings of lace;

S: vanilla with milk chocolate; booze is noticeable;

T: deeply roasted grain, then vanilla, then milk chocolate through the finish; mild bitterness at the end;

M: thick; full bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish; alcohol is warming, but for an 11% beer, it's quite soft;

O: the best beer I've had from this brewery; unexpectedly good;

Bottom of the can stamped 02/17/19.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a jet black pour then gave off a fairly dark black color in my glass. Quickly dissipating finger's worth of tan foamy head. Just a cinch of concave lace.
The aroma had some bourbon woody to spicy character over top of some dark chocolate, milk chocolate and an ever so slight touch of dark fruits. Some toast/wafer notes at the bottom.
The flavor leaned into a slight sweet and roasty blend pulling in some spicy to woody bourbon and wafer/toast. Light toffee then a slim aftertaste of sticky milk chocolate, dark fruits and semi-dry coffee bean tones.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par. Sticky finish, almost copy but some woody/bourbon spiciness holds it back slightly adding in some drying tones.
Overall, pretty nice sipper for a semi-chilly mid Spring evening. I bet aging this would definitely make this a fabulous beer.
