Thick, black, with medium head that fades quickly. Very light lacing.

Sweet caramelish scent, undertones of vanilla, coffee, oak. Lots of alcohol.

Swirl of nutty sweetness with oak and vanilla emerging later. Mildly bitter and spicy finish.

Very thick, creamy, heavy on the tongue. Takes its time.

The over the top creamy thickness is a win for me. The bourbon is there, but doesn't overwhelm the flavors, which is a win for me. Take your time with this one.

on tap at sams in Durham. shaker

pours a pitch black, opaque, with a nice creamy beige head. smell is of dark chocolate and roasted malts. typical RIS smell though it isn't as big. not getting any wheat though. the taste starts out big and chocolatey, lots of malt character. super smooth and creamy. full bodied but alcohol is very well hidden.

overall a very well done imperial stout that is super high on drinkability. going to be feeling the 13% soon.

Purchased a 22 oz bomber at the Hopshop Beer Market in State College, PA. Served in a snifter.

A- This thing is dark. Definitely no seeing through it. The brown head is a shallow and creamy, but sticks around a long time.

S- I poured this one when it was pretty cold, but after it warmed up, my nose was filled with wonderful aromas. A lot of dark fruits and quite a bit of alcohol, but hey, it's 13%. Some vanilla and a distinct nuttiness and spice round things up.

T- There's a back and forth between chocolate and booze the whole way down. The rye flavors are certainly there in the background, but noticing the rye is a stretch.

M- Creamy, thick, full-bodied to the max. Not a whole lot to complain about in this department.

O- This baby is certainly a sipper. The alcohol heat is actually quite enjoyable in this brew. I'll revisit this again if given the opportunity.

Poured into a tulip glass. A half finger of head on a pitch black body.
The aroma is vanilla, pecan pie, woody and boozy.
The taste is smooth and creamy. A little vanilla, burnt wood and alcohol heat. It's put together nicely.
The texture is soft with low carbonation.
A very drinkable beer at the 13% level, but it still retained the boozy notes.

On tap at the Whetstone Station Brewpub in Brattleboro Vt. Served a bit.too cold to get a complete sense of the nose. Mouthfeel is super chewy, right on the money. Flavor is really nice but a bit too sweet and too much vanilla. Overall a fantastic beer if I hadn't fallen for the hype but I'd like get ahold od as many bottles as possible to age because this will be out of this world when mellowed and balanced with age.
