Bottle may have been infected - it had that apple juice / cider taste that I've always associated with infected beers. Giving this a low rating to warn others of possible infection. I should have noted bottling date / lot code here, but I no longer have the bottle.

2013 (I believe) 22 oz bottle poured into a large wine tulip shaped wine glass.

A: A reddish hint coco brown with a nice 1.5 finger fluffly dark brown/khaki color head.

S: Oh yeah, this beer delivers on the aroma. Huge hazelnut coffee, chocolate aromas. Reminds me of a BA Frangelic Mountain. Barrel characteristics from the wood shine through, nice dark cherry sweetness interlaced with vanilla. Just a great smelling beer.

T: *Facepalm* SMH, this beer does not follow the wonderful complex aroma AT ALL. All the wonderful aromas are muted and turned down a very low office environment volume. Nothing stands out, syrupy, that wonderful hazelnut coffee aroma you liked? Well sorry, its not on the taste what so ever. Man talk about disappointing.

M: RULE #1, when you have an imperial porter/stout the MOST important thing is full body mouthfeel. This is thin as shit. Mouthfeel of a Guinness. THIN THIN THIN! Watery. No wonder the flavor is all but gone, it has no body to let the flavors come out.

O: I'm a big Knee Deep fan, every beer I've had from them has been excellent, including non BA Imperial Tanilla. This beer however is a major disappointment. If I'm drinking a 10% BA beer I expect some body. One could argue this is a sessionable less in your face beer, but at 10% you're not going to drink that. Now this is Knee Deep's first BA beer far as I know so perhaps there is a chance to learn from this mess. At $17 I would not advise picking this up, even at $5 I wouldn't pick this up again.
