4.22/5  rDev -8.9%

A: Pours a pitch-black color that lets no light through; thin film head, barely any lacing

S: Chocolate, sweet wood, dark malt, bourbon

T: Bitter dark chocolate, moist woodiness, boozy bourbon, dark roasted malts

M: Medium-light viscosity, low carbonation, a little boozy

O: This was a great Imperial Stout, though I don't think it quite lived up to the enormous hype. I think I'll have to find another bottle and give it a try again, as it was damn good
