Vintage 2014, corked and caged 12.7 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Deep black body with a thick nearly two finger dark tan head. A little lacing.

Deep oak aroma accompanied by strong vanilla and lighter dark malt notes.

Rich flavor with roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla and oak being the primary flavors.

Very thick mouthfeel and only a minor note of alcohol. Delicious Imperial Stout that I think will only improve with age.

These beer pours motor oil black. The smell is of sweet booziness. The flavor is sweet with a nice bit of bourbon and dark malts. I absolutely loved this beer.

I was in Illinois, I think, at this liquor store called Binny's, I looked over at the stash that the beer guys had tucked away, saw this brew in the stash, and snagged it. I used to be a beer guy. You can't leave your stash box sittin out for the public to find.

Pours up black with quickly dissipating head. No lacing. Nose is bourbon straight up. All the characteristics that go with bourbon were there. Vanilla, leather, heat, molasses, burnt caramel. Taste is the same way. Huge bourbon, almost too much but not too much if you smell what I'm fartin. Same characters from the nose. It's a simple yet complex brew. Thick body. Not as thick as some brews I've had which makes the drinkability go up. Sticky lingering finish. Very mellow carbo. I dig
