The weakest 'Imperial' anything
___

A: Deep, dingy clear ruby body with essentially no head.

S: Very weak. Light chocolate and feint earthy hops... that's about it.

T: Syrupy chocolate and embittering hop balancing out to the bitter side. Some burnt malt flavors lurking. Oddly lacing for 11% ABV.

M. Medium creamy.

O: Certainly does not deserve the title 'Imperial'

Growler acquired in trade with alexsdad06 (thanks!).

Poured a dark, dark brown (almost black color) with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roast, bourbon, stronger woodiness, and some vanilla. Tastes of the same stronger woodiness, bourbon, vanilla, some dark fruitiness, and roast. The bourbon was a little stronger in the tastes where the aromas had a stronger woodiness. Never would have guessed 11% - hidden with a nice and smooth/creamy body.
