Very good. Rich and malty, balanced bourbon character from the BT barrels... just doesn’t quite hit my preferred flavor profile for a BA RIS. What’s missing, you might ask - depth and molasses.
Good, with nice heat from the barrel. Light and kinda thin though when compared to other beers of similar types. Flavor doesn’t linger much either. Definitely would get again however.
Barrel forward. RIS a bit on thin side. Flavors flash and then disappear.
Pleasantly surprised. Big barrel, solid stout.
They had me at buffalo trace barrel aged. Great aroma and delicious.
Meh, it average
A nice Russian Imperial Stout
Lighter than expected. Better as it warms.
Very nice aroma. Great Russian Imperial Stout overall. It has the strong aspects of one, but also a heavy chocolate aspect towards the end. Less of the soy sauce flavors you might find in many RISs. The finish is actually quite mellow and rounds off very nicely.
The perfect RIS if you like getting punched in the face with bourbon barrels.
Fahhkinnn, BIG Fahks, man! Loved this. Boozy, sweet chocolate bourbon spice and smooth.
