B+. Would be higher rating if it were more complex, but it is a solid imperial stout with bourbon and barrel flavors. The 15.5% abv is well hidden.

Absolutely the best bourbon barrel imperial stout I've tasted. Huge bourbon notes, very complex, fruity with a continuous taste of Carmel, bourbon. Very tasty, very fine! It is hard to find in stores. profile - August 7, 2016
This is a nice Imperial Stout with a lot of bourbon flavor. There's a lot of head when you pour it and a pretty good aroma. I would drink again, but it's not the best out there. profile - February 26, 2016
Delicious RIS, drank after a glass of Goose Island bourbon Barrel stout. This beer is much hoppier, but just as delicious. 2/25/16 Tommy's 5 star profile - February 12, 2016
Dkrenik summed it up perfectly. The alcohol tastes separate from the beer. Not hidden in the beer like a Bourbon County Stout, or a 17% Dog Fish Head Higher Math.

We split a 22 oz bottle. Smells a little strange but tastes good. Very sting, both flavor and alcohol.

Carbonated, modestly smooth. Mid-big bodied. Barrel and biter upfront. Slight sweetness, balances very high ABV. Barrel finish. 3.75. Nice flavor overall
