Thanks to Chris for bringing this one to the tasting at Matt's this weekend.
Pours a black that nearly no light can penetrate.
Aroma is wonderful. There's a big bourbon presence with the normal aroma of an Imperial Stout. Chocolate, caramel, coffee, bread, and brown sugar.
Taste is off the charts! Sweet cocoa, bitter chocolate, coffee, molasses, and a huge bourbon profile.
Mouthfeel is thick, sticky and sweet.
This was probably the best stout I've ever had. I can't wait to get my hands on some more of this heavenly nectar.
