Notes / Commercial Description:
You're in for a treat with this one. Brewed with cocoa nibs and raisins and then lovingly aged in rum, sherry, bourbon, brandy and whiskey barrels, this big beer takes on flavors from the spirit and wood of each barrel. The end result is a complex and elegant companion that's right for carefree nights of privilege and excess.

Terrible. A 5 because it looked good. 1's on everything else. Maybe it's because I'm poor white trash but this stuff is just awful. I enjoy a good stout but geeze. First sip tasted like whiskey so bad I poured it out. Drank a few Erdinger Weisbeers and tried it again. It's just unbearable to me. Good luck everyone.

A beer is only as good as it tastes, and this one tastes purely like Milk Duds. It is so overly caramely sweet, almost zero hint of roatiness, chocolate, coffee, or anything else that marks the style. No hops, no roasted malt; just sickly sweet. One of the worst imperial stouts I've ever had.

Bottle thanks to Kyle...blindly poured and enjoyed.

Cannot review a beer all that favorably when a split 12 oz. bottle is dumped by both drinkers . Too many cooks in the kitchen without the left hand knowing what the right is doing. Theoretically awesome while practically a dud. Hard to dump such a small pour but damned if I did. Grapey surprise but the joke's on me. Just not an enjoyable beer.
