4.08/5 rDev -7.5%
12oz (bottled 3/27/2012) into a snifter. Pours an oily obsidian black w/ a thin mocha head that settles quickly, not so much lace as legs on the glass.
Aroma is deep and boozy. laden with bourbon, molasses, prunes, smoke, and more bourbon.
Taste is syrupy sweet, dark and roasty, bitter, boozy. Sugary dried dark fruits, molasses, chewy caramel, some vanilla, charred oak. A hint of cabernet.
Mouthfeel is slick and oily, thick and chewy. Strong alcohol heat.
Overall, as expected, this is an over-the-top imperial stout. A little too sweet and syrupy for my taste, but it's a unique experience nonetheless.
