First off..big thanks to Big Hugey for hooking me up with this...
A-Looks the part....pours like motor oil..black with ruby notes...
S-i get a lot of java....bourbon is there too but in more of a boozy way...not noticing the notes I really enjoy which are oak and vanilla...decent enough aroma but doesn't blow me away..
T-Again a big doze of java and coffee beans...that is the dominant flavor...has almost a coffee liquor taste...the bourbon notes are harder to come by on the taste....definitely boozy...
M-Rich and creamy texture....big body....this is a big hitter and it is definitely NOT light in the shorts...
D-It's always tough reviewing these beers that are so highly rated as you can come into it expecting too much....I don't think that is the case here....I think this is a nice tasting imperial coffee stout with very subtle bourbon barrel aged qualities....very subtle...i wish they were more pronounced but there is no question this is a quality brew...I won't seek it out again though and overall this is overrated in my opinion (but not bad)..
