3.8/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours an opaque black with a half finger of mocha-colored bubbly head that dissipates rather quickly. Not that I expect much head retention from a beer this heavy. Looks just fine -- it's what I expect an imperial stout to look like.

S: Aroma is interesting... the rye definitely makes it a little more astringent, but then there's the chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla there to really mellow it out. Alcohol shows, but isn't dominant.

T/M: This is where this beer got a little weird for me. The mouthfeel is fine, but maybe just a little thin for an imperial stout, probably partly due to the wheat/rye used -- it's just not quite as oily and thick as I'd like. Still very fine and reasonably carbonated. Taste is creamy and smooth chocolate with astringent rye and hop characteristics all trying to mask alcohol that just won't hide. For me the pecans hid well behind the rye, but I could definitely feel their presence. Everything that went into this beer otherwise shows itself, though, but the slightly clashing nature makes me realize why we don't see more wheat/rye/barrel-aged imperial stouts.

O: I'm hoping a bit of age will help pull this one together a bit. Right now it's a fine beer, and the price point is great, but it's not something I'm excited to drink more of if it doesn't change for the better.
