Bottle of this from cpferris. Had never heard of this beer, let alone this brewery, so thanks for introducing me to something new man!

From a bomber into a snifter
Imperial cream stout on rye whiskey.

APPEARANCE: A dark brown pour, almost black, yields a one finger, looser, mocha colored head with good retention. Black body with medium carbonation evident. Head fades to a full wisp and ring, though only a ring remains leaving a few falling dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Whiskey barrel for sure, with oak and some sweet vanilla cream on the nose. Milk chocolate and some dark, roasted chocolate aromas as well. Bold and enticing, with plenty of depth. Really wonderful.

TASTE: Whisky and oak up front for sure, with some sweet cream and milk chocolate as well. Finish is whisky barrel with boozy flavors, sweet vanilla cream, bitter pure chocolate and some roasted flavors. Lots of boozy barrel, caramel and vanilla cream sweetness, with some roasted and bitter dark chocolate from the base beer lingering on the palate. Really interesting and enjoyable.

PALATE: Medium-fuller body and medium carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth with a bit of a burn at the swallow and finishes mouth-coating. Creamy and enough weight for sure. Solid.

OVERALL: This was really good, with lots of great aromas and flavors in exceptional balance, on top of a solid mouth feel to support it all. Well done. A little less booze in the flavor and a darker, thicker head would help the cause, but these are minor complaints. A complex, well balanced, bold and flavorful stout with lots going on. Really enjoyed this one. Thanks again cpferris. Recommended.

Poured from a bomber from the 2012 release at the brewery. Pours nearly black. One of the thickest stouts Ive drank. A lot of malt went into this one.

Flavor is rich and complex. Cream stout with a rye bite on it is unique. will be grabbing another one of these if they are still around or next time its bottled. A real jewel by Greenbush.

Creamy and lush like a first grade crush - why, hello there. Don't get Raul wrong, he's not tripping on this one like that one time Anabel Eliza gave him some her Candy Hearts on valentines day - no no no. But it's a nice lil brew to sip on when you are sippin' it.

Yep!
