2013 edition. Not labeled as Black Gold. Delicious bourbon aromas and smooth, bourbon infused stout flavor. Thinner and creamier mouthfeel than many other imperial stouts.

Thick, opaque black pour with a light cinnamon head. Big dark chocolate and cherry smell with coffee notes. Bit o toffee and caramel. Tastes just like that. Lots of dark chocolate covered cherry. Low carb. Pretty tasty brew. Not the best, but very tadty and different from other stouts. Good change of pace from the big coffee flavors. Hoppy flavor helps highlight those flavors.
