Black color, thin light-brown head. Malty aroma accentuated by fruity esters. Very creamy, smooth mouthfeel. A flavor of burnt malt and burnt fruit permeates. Noticeable alcohol taste (10.2%ABV). Warming feeling. Extraordinarily brewed stout, very dark and complex, one of my favorites.

Just the way I like my Imperial Stouts; rich, smooth, full bodied, heady aroma, malty finish. Bought it as a 'pick a pack' selection from a borough distributor. Pleasant surprise. Definitely will purchase again!

Great beer. Bourbon flavor with just the right notes. Very smooth. Pricey but worth it.
