Imagine, if you will, the finest Imperial Stout ever made, smokey, chocolatey, liquorish-y and full bodied on the nose and the mouth. Then, take a never-before acomplished perfect pairing of Honey-sweet Boubon and VOILA...Mysterium Verum Volume XV will magically appear in your minds-eye, stirring into action the very best dopamine and serotonin mix, creating, on the palate, unadulterated love on the taste-buds!

Serving type: cask

4.25/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives as a midnight black liquid with an inch of foam that curtains the glass

Smell: Fudge, roasted coffee and bourbon

Taste: The fudge and roasted coffee deliver the first punch, with the bourbon rounding out the profile by mid-palate; after the swallow, other flavors such as coconut and graham cracker develop along with a sour element that adds an entirely different dimension; the slight sour flavor nicely complements the fudge, bourbon and vanilla in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet from the ABV

Overall: I really like the barrel treatment as well as the hint of sour that sets this beer apart from others in the style

Serving type: on-tap
