A: Pours pitch black, resembles motor oil, leaves a small espresso colored head, how any great stout should look!

S: I get a nice amount of coffee, bourbon, and chocolate, then some caramel and a very light hint of vanilla, it is simple but superbly blended, there's just something about this combination that puts it way over the top of any other stout with a similar profile, it is excellent!

T: Up front I get bourbon, loads of chocolate with hints of dark chocolate, then coffee and booze come in to play, and it finishes with a nice addition of a hint of caramel and vanilla, all the flavors are really well balanced and each flavor compliments every flavor, the alcohol at 14.9% is minimal, hardly any warmth to it at all, this beer is phenomenal!

M: This beer is syrupy, but it dries quickly and does leaves a sticky mouth fell, it is very smooth and drinkable, the flavor lingers for a long time but that is a really good thing!

O: Fantastic stout, this is probably the pinnacle for barrel aged stouts and will always be, you have to try this beer!

Coats the mouth well. Smell is intoxicating, excuse the pun. However, way too sweet for this Russian Imperial lover, and I lucked up on a case that my wife and friends will end up drinking. Almost dessert like. Very disappointed at my first time having.
