This is one of the best Imperial Stouts aged in bourbon barrels I have tried as of yet. The fact that this batch was brewed with coffee, vanilla and honey really add to the flavor of the mix. It smells of rich bittersweet chocolate and bourbon smokiness. The flavor is intense, slightly hot (13.1%), and full of charred bourbon barrel, vanilla, and a rich and deep maltiness not to be missed. The flavor lingers on the palate and begs to be sipped out of a chalice or wide wine glass. Enjoy this beast of an ale over an hour or two.
