Poured into a snifter glass. The beer pours black with a milk chocolate colored head. There are some bubbles visible rising along the side of the glass. The head retains very well for a 13% ABV beer. Some creamy lacing is left on the side of the glass during consumption. The aroma is of chocolate and nuts with vanilla. I also get some hints of bourbon and the rye along with some
toffee. I can also detect the alcohol. This is very unique in flavor as far as American imperial stouts go. I get plenty of that sweetness that I would expect from an English style imperial stout like Samuel Smith's. I get the chocolate, pecan, and vanilla from the nose. In many ways, the sweetness reminds me of Steen's cane syrup. I also get the rye and some back end roasty bitterness. I get some of the alcohol, but it's not strong in the flavor. The flavor is ultimately very rich. The body is full with moderate carbonation. This is a thick beer that warms the body with all the alcohol. This is an excellent beer.
