4.48/5 rDev -2.8%
This beer can be served on tap or bottled. It pours a light brown/tan and has a mocha head. Some aromas in this beer include raisins and roasted oak. It is has a very smooth and alcoholic texture with a light bitter hoppy aftertaste. Overall a smooth finish with great flavors!!

2014 Vintage, poured into a snifter.
A - Pours a thick black color with a minimal amount of tan head. The head dissipates quickly, leaving a small amount of lacing. On tipping the glass, one can see a heavy coating and fingers from the alcohol.
S - Smells of bourbon, sweet dark fruit and heavy booze with a hint of hops on the pour that quickly fades.
T - Carmel, candied fruit, bourbon and only the slightest of bite on the finish. The alcohol is vey well integrated and the time in cask has mellowed the hops out very significantly.
M - Thick, smooth and rich, with minimal carbonation.
O - A very good example of a barrel aged imperial stout. Well balanced, especially given the 14% abv. Highly recommended.
