On tap at the Brattleboro, Vermont Brewer's Festival on May 22, 2010. What was up with that pour? It filled the glass with the excitement of a just popped nitro can with a dark brown to black body covered by about four inches of flittering, silky light brown head that took several minutes to diminish. Good things come to those that wait as my nose was greeted with a strong ingredient of chocolate and lighter background of maple syrup. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy while the taste embodied an array of chocolate malts, cocoa, and maple components in a bourbon shield of pleasure. Very nice indeed.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Full 16oz pour into a ProPig snifter today, 2/10/2014.
App- Pitch black, thick dark mocha head, about one finger worth with great retention. Very delicious looking head that sticks around for a long time, it's almost like it was on nitro. Not much lacing.
Smell- Deep and sweet, a bit sugary with some dark fruits and roasty undertones.
Flavour- Faint dark fruits, strong roast, a bit of charred malts, sugar sweetness that is certainly not dry at all. Very rich and robust with a slight charred, earthy but sweet finish.
Mouthfeel- Best aspect. Full bodied, thick and syrupy, creamy and resinous but not cloying at all. Very drinkable, no hint of the 10.1% ABV.
Overall- Great Imperial Stout, I came into it looking at it as a American IS and it delivered on that count. The maple syrup seems to make it sweeter in a less dry and certainly not cloying manner. It's a well-done, very thick imperial stout that impresses in that regard.
