Chocolate, dark fruit, and bourbon. Thinner mouthfeel and not much sweetness but it works. Warms my chest. It's good.

Had it on tap.

Look: Dark, black, even holding it up to the light could not see through it. Poured a nice thick head which settled in about 5 minutes.

Smell: Hints of Vanilla and chocolate.

Taste: Bourbon flavor present. Malty backbone. Coffee aftertaste. Alcohol present but not overpowering.

Feel: Thick but not syrupy. Lingers a few seconds. Light carbonation.

Overall: a delicious imperial stout with great flavor that does not overpower your senses.

Looked the part of a big stout and smelled hints of bourbon slight chocolate.
Tasted normal big stout flavors, nothing unusual and very agreeable.
The body was way to light for what I was expecting.
