3.86/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance - Pours thick and syrupy from the bottle, leaving in the glass a near black brew with cola brown edging. Dark tan finger width head with fair retention, then gives way to spotty blotches of suds before eventually leaving a barren surface.
Smell - Pecan nuttiness is evident, as is the bourbon element. Typical stout aromas (roasted malt and the like) are there, but take a back seat to the aforementioned aromas.
Taste - Follows the nose. Plenty of nutty pecan flavor with strong backing notes of bourbon. Vanilla and some heat. Chocolate hits mid-taste. Not getting much wheat, if any... maybe faintly in the finish; a finish rich in chocolate, roasted malt flavor and touches of anise.
Mouthfeel - Full-bodied, thick and syrupy. Very low carbonation. A bit of heat, but otherwise it's smooth all things considered.
Overall - A commendable brew. Not my favorite Imperial, but I'd buy it again if the mood struck me (and if they brewed it again). Might age nicely; precisely why I bought more than just one!

Pours jet black with a tannish head and some lacing
Aromas of toffee, dark fruits, bourbon, some hops
Tastes of vanilla, raisins, dark toffee, a bitter finish from the rye, perhaps with some hops. Don't really pick up on the pecans. I do detect the 13% abv
Smooth mouthfeel, creamy, very light carbonation...definitely a sipper.
Overall, a different imperial stout, very smooth and creamy, I don't know of the pecans really added much for me. Don't know if this will show up again, but I would give it a try.

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
