2013. Pour is almost black with a fairly tight and creamy tan head. Nose is big and rich, hint of barrel up front with lots of chocolate cake, vanilla, maple syrup, notes of roasted and almost burnt malt very light. Good malt depth but a little sugary in the nose. Taste has more roasted malts up front, slightly acrid mid palate. Tons of maple syrup, vanilla, and chocolate cake. Sweet maltiness and a bit of bourbon and wood in the finish, not overly sugary but definitely a sweet beer. Full bodied, creamy feel, chewy and dry.

2013 vintage.

Pours opaque black. The 1/4 inch tan head quickly disappears completely and leaves faint spotty lace.

The smell is of bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate, graham crackers and pipe tobacco.

The taste is of sweet bourbon, molasses, dark chocolate and dark stone fruit.

The texture is heavy bodied and slightly oily with low carbonation.

This is a solid example of a barrel aged imperial stout. Not quite on the upper plain of heavy hitting barrel aged stouts but, certainly nipping at their heels. Lacking in the coffee presence of most imperial stouts.
