10/09/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. I feel guilty saying this, but if it were 2 years ago I would be ecstatic about this stout. Since then, there have been many in the genre that have out paced this effort. Not that there anything wrong here, it's just that there is not much to set it apart. Sitting in a place with 40 choices I realize that I'm privileged & the guilt sets in when I have to pass over such a noble effort. Looking forward to trying their vanilla bean brew.

An enjoyable, almost sessionable imperial stout due to its thin body. The score reflects the thin mouthfeel and relatively simple flavor profile. However, what is there is very enjoyable. Roasty malts, tart cherry, dark chocolate flavors. Active, creamy carbonation which offsets the slightly viscous but thin mouthfeel. The alcohols are well integrated. My bottle was aged for approximately 7 months from purchase.
