Nice bourbon and sweeter flavors. Great drinkability, just a little on the thinner side.
$26 is a steep price for 4, but they are pints.

Tremendous bourbon barrel aged imperial stout. Great hints of chocolate and cherry in here with some layers of mocha and a touch of dried fruit. Fine medium thick body with a warming aftertaste and mouth coating. Enjoyed on draft at the brewpub - wish I had made it here for the can release.
