Excellent balance for a big BBA Imperial Stout. Still a little hot and carbonated after warming to room temperature, but overall another delicious offering from a fantastic brewery.

Bottled on 3/22/16.Pours into a goblet nearly jet black except for some ruddy brown when held up to the light a creamy beige head atop.Bourbon,chocolate, and vanilla stand out in the nose but some ripe apple and fig is there as well,I like the somewhat unripe fruitiness that the aromas bring over the bourbon and chocolate.Bourbon and graham cracker flavors up front on the palate then some drunken fruits come into play,the chocolate although there is not as "big" to me on the palate.It's a fantastic beer....I don't venture to far into Wicked Weed territory because I am not into sour/funk but man when I do I'am rewarded.A helluva beer here.

On tap at the brewpub which reports 11.7% ABV and use of 3 malts (including honey malt), rye, honey, brown sugar and dextrose. Two samples, 2 days apart.

Pours are dark and opaque red-brown with a small, very durable head.

WW uses a pre-rinsed BBL to great effect on the aroma, flavor and smooth feel. Nit-picking, I note a bit more burnt flavor in the aftertaste than optimal.

O: very enjoyable; every aspect excels.

Tap at Salud NoDa. Your standard black, nice and thick appearing. Thin but frothy layer of tan head. Laces just a bit.

Aroma, roast malt, dark chocolate fudge, some vanilla, oak, bourbon.

Taste, roast malt and bourbon barrel are big and about equal throughout. Roast malt and darker less sweet chocolate. Vanilla and bourbon. Just a little anise and coffee bitterness. It all lingers very nicely.

About full body, a tad warming. Not quite creamy mouthfeel. A nice sipping after dinner or cigar beer for sure.
My favorite dark beer of theirs so far, as good as their Belgian and ipa lines.
