On tap at the brewpub, quick review from written notes.

Black with a thin layer of creamy tan foam, that parts after a couple minutes. Sparse lacing. Rich chocolate aroma, smooth and appealing.

Light feel and medium body, smooth feel with light carbonation. Undercurrent of dried fruit, plums. Dry dark chocolate, bitter aftertaste that lingers nicely. Appealing flavor, could use a little more heft in the body. Strong offering though. Heard this was put into bourbon barrels recently... should be interesting to try.

Served in a snifter at the brewpub.

When you're a fan of the Jack Stout (like I am), news of an impy stout here at the onion is more than welcome. This stuff pours a straight onyx topped by a finger of sienna foam. The nose comprises deep dark chocolate, light molasses, light maple syrup, roasted malts, fudge, and a vague stroke of dark breadiness pervading the interior ether. The taste brings in more of the same, with the roast tempering a bit whatever sweetness the chocolate can muster. Nice. The body is a light heavy, with a light moderate carbonation and a mildly chewy feel. Overall, a damn fine impy stout, one of the best beers I've yet had here. Good times, indeed.

Pours a thick menacing black with zero visible signs of carbonation. Smell is terrific. Tons of brownie batter, barrel char, heavy vanilla and chocolate interplay, and some smooth cream. Wow. The nose of this promises something far better than any other wild onion brew I've tried to date. The flavor doesn't disappoint either. Assertive fudge and brownie paired with bourbon and oak. Great balance here, it is super rich but never borders into the world of boozy. Mouthfeel is heavy and viscous with almost no carbonation. Overall, this beer is no joke. I imagine this one will go under appreciated, but if you get the chance to try it, I highly recommend it!
