Bought a four-pack. $7.99 in San Diego.

Poured a nice near-black caramel with a nice but short lived head.

Smells of roasty malt, dark chocolate, espresso, and vanilla. As it warms I'm catching a whiff of something bourbon-like....maybe just the alcohol reacting with all the other characters.

Taste is similar to smell. I'm getting a little bit of hoppiness as well and the usual Imperial Stout characteristics. Alcohol sneaks up on you a bit.

A very drinkable stout. As I finish this one I'm contemplating grabbing another. Very tasty burps.

Glad I tried this beer - the 4-pack won't last long.
