Drinking a 2017 in spring 2019. Very coffee forward. Almost tangy. Tastes a little flat, and not in a carbonation way. Hides the 12% ABV well. Maybe this one went bad?

L;. Pours a pitch black color with a small tan head and some things rings of lacing on the glass.

S:. Roasted malt, strong coffee, some notes of berry and a chocolate covered cherry. Smells decadent and rich.

T:. Strong coffee with a medium bitterness, roasted malt, chocolate covered cherry and notes of berry, rich and decadent.

F:. Thick body with creamy smooth carbonation.

O:. As far as I am concerned this is one of the best imperial stout out there, if you haven't tried it yet, what are you waiting for?

22oz bottle, REL#104, 11.6% ALC/VOL, SLC#5614. Near black body with a foamy brown head. Boozy rye barrel aroma mixed with dark malt, chocolate, roasted barley, vanilla, coffee, and earthy hops. Rich, sweet, boozy, and complex in flavor: dark chocolate, spicy rye, oak, vanilla, coffee, caramel, dark fruit, earthy & leafy hops. Full body, ample carbonation, sticky sweetness, balanced finish. Very solid BA stout. I like that it's rye barrel aged rather than bourbon barrel - it works well with this beer.
