Jet black, impenetrable to light. Thick whole wheat colored head recedes fairly quickly but does stick well to the glass.

Burnt molasses, charcoal, oak in the aroma. Smooth with hints of bourbon. Sweet overall with just a touch of rye.

Roasted malt with wheat toast and almond character in the beginning. Sweet molasses and bourbon in the middle. Subtle herbal hop. Finish is dry and grainy with lingering rye that sticks around in the aftertaste destroying the much anticipated smooth bourbon flavor.

Dense, sticky yet smooth in the front. Turns grainy and syrupy in the finish with a coarse texture. A bit overcarbonated for the style.

Not too impressed with this one and I'm usually a huge fan of stone. Pretty disappointing.

Poured from 22oz bottle into travel tulip. Purchased at Mr. Dunderbaks for $9.99.
Poured a deep black color with thick fluffy creamy tan head. Look is amazing especially for the ABV!
Smell is great..huge bourbon notes, lots of dried fruit and chocolate with a hint of wheat/oats. Taste is bourbon dried fruit and a hint of vanilla. Oaty and creamy with a hint of some nutty and chewey notes.
This really is a farking awesome brew. This is exactly what I love in an Imperial stout...bourbon, dried fruit, smooth, and high abv...this should be a year round brew and I would buy often. For the amazing low price under $10...you really cant beat this brew. Fantastic.

Draught, 10oz into a nearly 10oz goblet
13% ABV

A – Dark brown-black, opaque. No head, some immobile but attractive lacing curvily hanging.

S – Bourbony alcohol smell, a woodiness too. Not a sharp alcohol smell, but a smooth one. A dark sweet licorice. As it warms, I can make out a more full smell, but the components are still buried under alcohol.

T – Sweet yet not too much due to alcohol. Can’t really taste the alcohol. A tiny pinch of woodiness. Some leather comes through. It seems like the alcohol is covering tastes but not inserting itself that much. Not getting any wheat, which is a letdown. As it warms, I can taste alcohol and a tiny bit of raisin. The sweetness is pretty unchanged, just more alcohol.

M – Thick, smooth, and syrupy. Heavy bodied and a tad chewy, with a quite wet finish. Despite the alcohol abound, it mostly comes through here as a warmth on the swallow. Goopy is a good word. As it warms, the finish gets a bit less soft and drier as the alcohol comes out more.

O – This beer needs time, the alcohol is quite overbearing. Hopefully it will cellar well. Not sure if the wheat will ever show. It’s a sipper for sure and not for people new to big beers. After letting it warm, it is for sure a booze bomb that needs at least a year. I will wait 2-4 years on my bottle.
3.25, 3, 3.25, 2.75, 2.75; 3.02.

Riedel tulip

A: Pours a deep brown color. Some reddish hues pouring out but looks black in glass. Basically no head. Just a collar of tight bubbled tan around edges. At 13%, certainly some alcohol feet.

S: Booze. Bourbon. Vanilla. Shockingly I do get some pecan nuttiness. Roasted malts. Burnt caramel. Toffee.

T: Enjoying with some S'mores. Chocolate is going well with this one. Getting some dark chocolate bitterness up front. Then delicious vanilla and toffee and burnt caramel. Strangely some dark fruit, hints. Nuttiness. Sweet malts. Booze. Long finish.

M: High carbonation. It's full bodied but not overly thick. It's actually overly carbed IMO
