650ml bottle with about one year of age. Poured into a Cigar City snifter 9/5/2014.

A- Dark brown body, quite dark and gets close to pitch black. Minimal head. No lacing. [3.5]

S- Whiskey, cocoa, dark chocolate, whiskey. Not a lot of coffee but this is certainly a whiskey forward beer. Smells quite good, if a bit of a whiskey bomb. [4]

F- Seems to be bourbon as the whiskey flavour is fairly smoky. Milk chocolate, a bit of bitter black coffee, a small amount of roast malts. As in the nose, quite whiskey forward, very little coffee. Makes sense as this bottle is a bit older than a year. Whiskey-forward beers aren't quite my thing, unfortunately. [3.75]

M- Medium bodied, smooth and silky. Lower in carbonation as expected. Runs a bit hot, surprisingly given its age. [4]

O- Not a bad imperial stout, I think the coffee would have added a welcome dimension to this beer. As it is, it's very whiskey-heavy and that would satisfy certain beer drinkers, but it just doesn't quite do it for me. [3.5]
