Stout - Imperial Special Out of Production
Score
8.13
ABV: 15.0% IBU: - Ticks: 7
For Beer : Barrel : Time 2018, we chose a blend of our stout recipes that consisted of O.W.K. aged in Willett Bourbon barrels for 20 months, … (Ellipses) aged in Heaven Hill barrels for 23 months and Derivation Blend #3 aged in Knob Creek barrels for 17 months. Whereas BBT 2017 spent a little less time in barrel, the additional average age for the 2018 blend let the rich chocolate and sweet coconut notes of the beer and oak come forward a bit more, resembling some of the older, non-adjunct Derivation Blends.

No head; pours like old motor oil draining. Alcohol, higher alcohols, musk, Bourbon. Sweet, roast, smoked, vanilla, Bourbon, whilst finish is chocolate bomb. Heat, chili, near solid food. Insane. In price.

Bottle at J&Cs Semi White Whale tasting. My #2000 and for that I break the chain of just ticking :D . While not getting as enthusiastic as before by Barrel Age Stouts, this one was a masterpiece among other great beers of the day. Thick velvet, black body with a tan brown head- Silky, smooth mouthfeel. Heavy sweet chocolate aroma, almost fudge like, toffee, vanilla, bourbon. Complex but completely balanced taste, hides the 15% very well. Lots of chocolate again like liquid chocolate fudge, bourbon without even being slightest boozy, vanilla some coconut and licorice notes. Amazing beer.
