Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ThatsThatDude on 03-13-2014

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This beer is as hairy as a Siberian.. or as a panther. And you better believe it because it gets the black magic from sitting for two years in bourbon barrels. During those years it gathered its rage.. a rage this mythical beast of an imperial stout wants to unleash on your taste buds.

Cocoa, vanilla, oak, milk chocolate and an umami savory quality. Decently thick. Some sweetness, not too dry and a long finish. (127 characters)

22 oz bottle received in trade from Kale. Allowed to warm to an initial temperature of about 50, then served in a Belgian snifter.

The opaque black liquid looks rich and thick, which is not misleading. The aroma is complex and seemingly variable. It carries notes of well baked cookies, coffee, bourbon, faint wood, dark bread, and dark fruits. These all reappear in the flavor which, while excellent, is not quite as appealing as the aroma.

Very full bodied and smooth, with light carbonation and well hidden alcohol.

O: Exceptional. (540 characters)

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black. Nice mocha head. Thin collar.

Smell - Not a ton of bourbon, but it's got a bright whiskey aroma. Vanilla. Sharp whiskey. Dark chocolate.

Taste - Dark chocolate and fudge. Sweet. Caramel. Sharp whiskey. Astringent oak. Nutty odd oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - I expected to like this better, but it's not any better than the Apple Brandy. I don't love the barrel again, but it's a good base stout. (498 characters)
