12 ounce bottle poured into DFH glass.
A: Pours pitch black with a nice 1 finger cocoa colored head. Head recedes, but leaves a frothy covering atop the beer. What a big imperial stout should look like.
S: One of the best smelling beers you will find. Tons of dark chocolate, coffee, and a nice helping of bourbon beneath.
T: This was one of the first beers I fell in love with and is one of those beers that I seek out with a vengeance each year it is released. When relatively fresh, as this bottle is, the initial flavor is that of melted chocolate. The bitterness of the coffee then creeps in and cuts some of the sweetness. The tongue then picks up the slight bourbon heat that is there to let you know this beer spent some time in barrels.
M: Mouthfeel is exactly as a beer of this size should be, viscous and low carbonation. Sticky and lingers on the palate.
O: This is one of my favorite beers. It isn't as bourbon forward as some other barrel aged beers (e.g., BCBS) but is an exceptional showcase of how flavors can blend for an exceptional drinking experience.
