Pours an absolutely gorgeously thick pitch black with a nice little brown head. smells amazing. bourbon, coffee beans, chocolate, vanilla, etc.
this one is big. heavy alcohol in the nose. chocolate/bourbon sweetness up front. alcohol burn on the backside of the tongue and going down. a bitter roastiness throughout, that retains only a hint of the coffee bean flavor suggested by the smell (seemingly due to the bourbon taking over the coffee flavors). a nice dark chocolate flavor accompanies the bourbon, making this a great dessert beer. absolutely destroys regular breakfast stout. it tastes (and smells) like a mix between bourbon county stout and black butte XXI, for those of you who are familiar with those two beers.
it may be slightly over-carbonated, but it has the "motor oil" thickness so essential to the mouthfeel of great imperial stouts. drinkability is hindered by the on-the-verge-of-overwhelming alcohol presence.
