4.33/5 rDev +1.2%
Poured from 32 oz growler into tulip glass.
A: Pours absolutely black with small one finger chocolate colored head. No lacing to be found.
S: Red wine, cherry, chocolate, and booze.
T: Follows the nose fairly closely. Big alcohol presence with nice chocolate and cherry tones.
M: Fairly thick with minimal carbonation. Coats the tongue completely.
O: A very nice Imperial Stout. I would love to have one of these in a bottle with some age on it.

Just a fantastic beer, pours very dark black, and leaves great lacing. Aroma is a nice combination of roasted malts and dark plum from the barrels. Nice thick mouth feel, and makes for a true sipper of a beer. Taste is a well balanced blend of malt, barrel aging and just an ice overall stout. This beer is incredible well made, I'd love to try the bbl variety.

Very dark brown to black with tan head that dissipates quickly.
Smell is sweet malts, raisins and plums. Maybe a hint of wine early. The wine comes out in the nose more as it warms a bit.
Taste is sweet and chocolatey. Lots of sweet malt with a tang of acidity reminicient of a red wine. Minimal bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall this was excellent. Worth a try.
