Pours a dark black hue with a creamy three finger head and lacing everywhere what a looker, the smell is strong whiskey with dark chocolate and smokey oak, the feel is full bodied lush with moderate carbonation and the taste is started off with a little whiskey then the big imp stout takes over its dark chocolate, coffee and finished with a smokey oakiness and overall wow what a top drop cheers.

This beer has a beautiful amount of complexity with its ingredients coming out.

The beer has a medium minus spiciness from the peppers. There is a pop of whiskey barrel, which is clearly unlike the smooth qualities of bourbon barrels. Then from mid palate on, there is a big roasted coffee flavor that is familiar of Kopi from Kopi speedway.

The beer is medium plus to full.

An interesting and fun brew.
