I believe this is a bottle from 2009.

Oily thick. Tan head.

Huge nose of stone fruits. Rye whiskey comes off on the nose.

Silky smooth. Huge mouthfeel. The whiskey and oak comes off beautifully. Great bitterness feel. I'm not sure I have had a bigger Russian imperial stout.

Wonderful.

The first 3 things I noticed were the very dark color, the almost non-existing head, and the intense smell of the whiskey barrel this beer is aged in. The beer is full-bodied and strong (9.4% alc) but is actually quite smooth. I expected from the look and smell for it to be a bit more bitter and would probably preferred it to be. However, it was nice to drink a strong stout without feeling like it was trying to bowl you over.

Overall, a very nice stout.
