dark reddish brown...little head and some lacing. the nose is very bourbon forward. lots of bourbon and vanilla.

the taste follows the nose. sweetness and bourbon with vanilla. these are certainly the primary flavors with some more traditional roasty stout flavors coming through in the finish. the taste is nice, but this doesn't come off as complex as other imperial stouts I enjoy...granted, this is one of the only bb stouts i have had, so i am comparing it to non barrel aged stouts.

mouthfeel is fine, but it is thinner than i anticipated. it is smooth however.

overall: this is a beer I will buy again, but I there are other imperial stouts i enjoy much more. overall, definitely a good beer. my wife enjoyed it more than myself... i think this is definitely a bourbon fans' beer.
