On tap at Rogue island.
Pours pitch black with no head. Aroma is licorice, vanilla, bourbons booze, and caramel. Taste is similar to nose but booze is mostly hidden. Lots of cocoa and vanilla. Not too hot, slightly over carbonated, but heat is minimal is is crazy for 10.5%.
A well done barrel aged imperial stout. I imagine this with some coffee beans thrown into the barrel and salivate...

32oz. howler served in a stemless wineglass. Pours slightly darker than cola with a quarter inch, khaki-colored head that sizzles and pops as it slowly recedes into a broken slick. An undulating band of lacing encircles the bowl of the glass. Nose expresses roast, cocoa, lactose and a hint of artificial vanilla. Taste follows nose with with a suggestion of spice, cocoa nibs, licorice and perhaps a suggestion of caramel. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body, perhaps a little thin, with an easy, even carbonation and a touch of acidity. Overall, a very good stout with a well-hidden abv. I don't get much of the barrel; however, this is a tasty beer that has an interesting flavor profile without the emphasis on the char and roast typical of the style.

Got to try this at Proclamation's release event at the brewery. Was happy to be part of the first crowd to try this stuff.
A - Dark. Very dark. Brown/tan 2-finger head. Opaque. Can't see through it.
S- Chocolate, vanilla, oak, roast and coffee. Nice, pretty standard for an imperial stout, but a good aroma nonetheless.
T- Thick, but drinkable, lots of vanilla and chocolate and oak. Bourbon and coffee as well. Apparently this is 10.2% abv, it was super drinkable for being that high of abv and disguised very well. It was however apparent after having 2 medium sized pours that I could believe it for sure.
M- Creamy and thick, but totally drinkable. Body of the beer was very pillowy and enjoyable.
O- I'm excited. If the 2 beers I got to try tonight is any indictation, this brewery will be releasing some excellent beers. This was a very solid stout that could stand up to some of the very best.
