From a 33cL can.
Pitch black, mocha head.
On the nose, Whiskey mineral notes, woody, caramel, coffee.
On the tongue, earthy bitterness between the roasted malts and the bitter hops. Some smokiness. The barrel aging brings depth.
The mouthfeel is thick.
Great stuff

Black color with mocha head. Aroma has toffee, spicy chocolate, cacao and a light rum note. Taste has bourbon, salted caramel, slightly astringent dark chocolate, cacao bitterness and green coffee beans on the aftertaste. Full bodied with soft carbonation. A really well made imperial stout.

Tan head with lace. Black color. Roasted and thick. A bit of peat. A lot of oak and whiskey. Vanilla and caramel. Cocoa powder and chocolate.

Full bodied. Thick, creamy, roasted.

A very fun stout to try. Better than expected.

On tap at CBC Boston. Comes black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and some dark fruit. Very well made RIS. Delicious.
