Pours jet black with a small dark brown head that quickly fizzes away leaving a ring around the beer. Sticky lacing and legs.
The aroma begins with dark chocolate with a hint of raisins. Vanilla and oak as well. Very sweet. The bourbon is not overwhelming but is definitely there.
Roasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla and oak in the taste. Sweet but not too cloying.
Thick and luscious. Barely any carbonation, but the body is full enough to compensate. Luxurious seems to be an appropriate word.
Overall a very satisfying stout. I have had higher ABV stouts that were easier to drink, but this is pretty much what I look for in imperial stouts.
