From a bomber into a snifter
Whisky barrel aged imperial stout

APPEARANCE: Pours a muddy, opaque black and yields a 2+ finger, medium looking, slightly creamy, mocha or dark tan head with very good retention. Black body with no carbonation evident. Had fades to a full creamy thick cap but leaves no lacing. A ring and slight splotchy wisp remain until the end and leave some decent lacing down the glass as it empties.

SMELL: Whisky, oak, sweet cream, vanilla and milk chocolate on the nose. Very bold and enticing. Coconut with some pure chocolate and fudge notes emerge as it sits as well. This is sublime. Very forthcoming and balanced. Decadent stuff.

TASTE: Oak, whisky, sweet cream and vanilla up front. More barrel notes at the swallow with milk chocolate notes as well, then a bold and persistent finish of whisky, oak, sweet vanilla cream, bitter pure chocolate, fudge brownies and some pure, bitter chocolate as well. Lots of barrel and decadent fudge and sweet chocolate and cream flavors. Big and relentless, lingering long after the swallow. Excellent.

PALATE: Full body and medium levels of carbonation. Lots of weight, thick on the palate, semi-creamy, goes down fine with a bit of a scratch and finishes sticky. Very little heat lingers on the palate, Thick and heavy.

OVERALL: Insanely good. Better than everyone says it is and better than I remember other samples I've had. This is definitely top 5 material for me, and I've been lucky to have made my way around the block a little bit. It's got all the aroma and flavor characteristics I love in the style, and the feel is right up my alley: big, thick and heavy. Loved every drop of this stuff and would love to see it again. Thanks again dboon. Lovely.
