Great stout. If I hadn't had a KBS a week earlier I would say one of the best. Rather than go through the usual A-S-T-M review that a thousand other BA's have done before me, I just want to talk about how important it is to age this beer for approx. 8-12 months. I realize that it's only 8.3% abv and not bourbon barelled, but when you drink this beer fresh right off the shelf it has a bit of a hop bite that doesn't blend well with the malt and the mouthfeel isn't smooth and creamy. At six months it still isn't quite right but starting around eight months it becomes a great beer. Now here's the strange part, I age the bottles at 36 degrees. I don't know why it works (all my higher abv imperial stouts are aged at 68 degrees) it just does.
