American Double / Imperial Stout |  11.50% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
A full-bodied, Single Barrel Bourbon-aged Imperial Stout with rich aromas of espresso and dark chocolate, and smooth roasted malt flavor. Aged for 6 months inside charred Kentucky white oak bourbon barrels to add the natural vanilla and caramelized sugar flavors of the bourbon soaked wood to the beer. Each bottle run is drawn from a single barrel, making each batch a unique drinking experience. ABV from 10.5% to 11.5%.

On nitro at pizza boy. Pours black with little head. Not as flavorful as a typical bb stout but still good, although not great. Hints of bourbon that are quite nice but not much from the underlying stout - I would take Ten Fidy or regular Pt5th over this. A decent beer, but below what I would expect from a quality bb stout.
