Appearance
Black with a small mocha head, looks dangerously enticing, good lacing
Smell
Smells strong of roasted malt, coffee, sugary and has slight bourbon barrel notes
Taste
Oh wow! Medium/heavy mouthfeel, rich and abundant in roasted malt and coffee. There is also mild vanilla and a slight hint of that 10% ABV in the finish
Overall
This is a very good stout and I like it an great deal. And it’s a really good price in my area at least which sweetens the deal. I don’t think this beer gets enough credit, to be honest, if it had the name “Stone” on it people would probably think much higher of it. Anyways, I really like it and always recommend it- and so should you!

Poured 12oz bottle 2013 batch into New Belgium globe

A-pours a black with a one finger tan head. Good lacing.

S-Roasty aroma with coffee, some cocoa and bourbon notes.

T-great sweet flavor with bourbon, chocolate, dark fruits and vanilla.

M-Full-bodied, nice balance with the malt, vanilla cream, and booze.

O-really enjoy this imperial milk stout. The bourbon was a nice touch with the cold weather.
