4.65/5 rDev +14.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Poured a deep black, with a thin tan head, that turned to a tan ring, leaving little lacing. Quite nice, very much like a barrel-aged stout. Scents of cocoa, coffee, slight soy sauce, slight alcohol, and slight nuttiness. A good scent for an imperial stout, what I look for in the style. Flavor begins with some nice Bourbon flavors, moves along into dark chocolate, and coffee notes, a sweetness is present throughout, there are some slight pecan and nutty hints, especially on the finish and aftertaste, alcohol is present throughout, the beer ends on roast malt, with a roast malt and black coffee aftertaste. As it warms it changes character a bit. Flavors of alcohol become more pronounced, and the typical stout character of roast malt, black coffee and dark chocolate become more pronounced as well. The nuttiness takes a backseat and is masked heavily by the alcohol, but it still slightly shines in the aftertaste, though overshadowed by roast malt. There are also some slight prune and plum notes as it warms. An excellent flavor profile, with a great deal of complexity. The flavors blend magically and the two slightly different flavor profiles on display each have their own charm. Mouthfeel is thick bodied with moderate carbonation and a slight alcohol burn when cold. This burn changes to a more pronounced alcohol burn, quite noticeable in fact, as the beer warms. Both mouthfeels are quite nice, though they make the beer very much a sipper. An excellent imperial stout. It has a high level of complexity in flavor and a nice, boozy character that makes it an excellent beer to sip and savor. Highly recommended.

Pint at 2014 Most Arrogant Bar Bash (Barleys in Greenvillle, SC).
Pours black and opaque, with a very good tan head. Red-brown edges.
Lightly sweet; flavor builds and builds to a strong finish and aftertaste; Light boozy; low (a bit too low) carbonation; warming.
Serving type: on-tap

Absolutely beautiful pour! Shows a thick creamy milk chocolate brown head. Body is traditional ink blackness. Very dark and romantic in tone.
Nose is quite soft but yields hints of earth, chocolate and molasses. It is full and rich overall but not a dominant factor that really stands out.
I am immediately taken by how dry this stout was. I was expecting a much sweeter feel. The rye is the real playing ingredient here. Very dry and sharply bitter is the body of flavor of this brew. A hint of sweetness does develop on the end of the mouthfeel as you drink and the beer warms. The alcohol really plays in this brew also.
Overall very solid brew. This beer shows great signs of one that would age very nicely.
