I have had this one for a few years, drank it today with Spanish Cheese and nectarines for dinner. Very nice stout. Pours a dense black color with no light coming through. Dark tan medium size head with good retention and thick filmy lacing on the glass. Smell is the weakest area, definitely malty, some vanilla and a little chocolate.

Taste is solid. Rich malty flavor, a little chocolate and coffee and a warming alcohol effect. I'm sure this beer benefited from the aging as far as smoothness goes.

Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. There is a warming alcohol presence but it don't take from the smooth flavorful presentation.

THis is a solid stout, well worth trying.

Snifter, reviewed from notes. Thanks for sharing Justin.

Pours almost flat with a near black body with caramel highlights. Faint collar. The nose is light with strange whiskey notes and maybe some chocolate. Very light nose. I get mild chocolate, roast, caramel and coconut for taste, with a bitter finish and whisky in the aftertaste. The body is on the thin side with very low carbonation and a tingly and thin mouthfeel. Overall very simple without much going on. Tastes alright but the body is too thin.

this brewery is not far from the resort campground I spend my summers at so it is a nice place to visit on Saturday afternoon I am new to reviewing beer but I know what I like and this beer on a rainy day is good. the taste is not too strong ,and it is a good sipping beer.

Gusher here. Be careful when u open it. Bought this on vacation last year in VA Beach. Aged in Makers Mark barrels. No matter how I pour this it foams up like crazy. It's actually not bad and still a really strong Makers smell and taste (love MM) after a year in my cellar. Way too much carbonation for an imperial stout for me tho. Can't get any other flavors over the MM alcohol burn.
