4.13/5 rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 22oz bottle to pint glass
A: Pours dark, clean brown with a large puffy light-brown head. Good retention.
S: Not an extremely strong smell. Small hints of roasted malt along with a hint of vanilla and a strong oak smell. Little hint of hops.
T: Strong oak with a little bit of vanilla. Small chocolate taste and strong roasted malts. Very mellow, but the sweet oak taste brings this beer up a step from mediocre.
Overall: very light bodied for the style, but very drinkable. Alcohol doesn't come out at all. Very enjoyable, I can say I'm pleasantly surprised.

one of the most oaky examples of this style I have encountered. thin and inky black in color, this beer doesn't have a ton of head, but what it does have is an incredible nose. it smells incredibly oak forward, almost more so than that dark roasted barley or alcohol I smell musty oak, deciduous and pungent. it carries over to the flavor too, but instead of complimenting the stout itself, it sort of takes over. the thinness of body also exacerbates this issue, which gives me a watery feel but a very intense woody flavor, an odd sensation on my palate. bitter in the finish with just a touch of toasted coconut island style flare in there, but there just isn't the depth here of some of the worlds best Russian imperials. I like the intensity of the oak, but it limits drinkability, especially when this warms up. o good beer overall though, and one of boulder beers best offerings really.
