500 mL bottle from batch 2. Opaque dark brown color with a small tan head that settled quickly. Some wispy islands remained. Chocolate on the nose along with a thinner cola like flavor. I did not get much barrel in the aroma. The taste was different. The scotch was there up front but also restrained, allowing the chocolate to shine. A somewhat thin finish but overall very enjoyable.

A murky dark brown ale with spicy aroma from the scotch barrel presumably but with a bit too much caramel sweetness and not enough stout quality in the flavor. Feel is really good which just nudges it up to a 4 overall.

L: Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass. Nice dark color with a thin tan head.

S: The nose was one thing that stood out on this one, the vanilla, the coffee come through with a soft smoke on the end.

T: Followed the nose, this was a complex beer that didn't overwhelm the palate. It's very well balanced with the sweet vanilla up front followed by the coffee bitterness and the light smoke on the back from the barrels. The flavors all come through perfectly.

F: I thought the mouth feel was nice, not too thick but it wasn't thin. It was mentioned by one of my friends that he thought it could have been thicker but he likes beers as thick as motor oil.

O: This was a 5 star beer for me. The flavors, the balance and the over all enjoyment are right up with the some of the best beers I've ever had. I would love to score another bottle of this one!

A beautiful beer on nitro. 2 fingers of fine khaki bubbles. Smells of chocolate scotch as it warms the chocolate sweetness overtakes the aroma. The mothfeel is light but on par with a milk stout but the taste is straight chocolate perfectly complimented with a light scotch flavor. Bravo Monday night.

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 10.99. Best by 1/25/18 so I assume bottled 1/25/17. Served in a Monday Night snifter.

Pours jet black with a finger and a quarter of milky tan head. A thin, mocha haze covers most of the surface and the persistent milky collar leaves only a few sparce specks on the glass.

Aromas of scotch, chocolate, heavily creamed coffee, oak and peat. I really like it and often find my nose positioned over the glass between sips.

Wow. Taste follows the nose in the best of ways. Vanilla creamed coffee, wet oak, Scotch whiskey, chocolate, caramel, soft smoke, condensed milk, peat, bread and some slight booze. The base milk stout, adjuncts and scotch barrels all work very well together.

Creamy, smooth feel, somewhere between medium and full bodied with velvety carbonation. Peaty, smokey Scotch pervades the finish with complements of vanilla roasted coffee, chocolate and milk sugar.

Monday Night ups their game again with this latest release in the Black Tie series. Tears of my Enemies is a scotch-soaked chocolate covered vanilla-roasted coffee tres leches cake treat. I should have bought much more because this seems to have dried up pretty quickly. Well worth a try if you grt the opportunity.

Imperial Milk Stout aged in 18 year Scotch barrels with vanilla and coffee

Appearance: Arrives the color of espresso, with a modest head that leaves a few strands of lacing

Smell: Milk chocolate and vanilla, with muted Scotch tones

Taste: Milk chocolate and vanilla forward, with subtle Scotch flavor building through the middle and a hint of coffee, after the swallow; the finish brings a return to the start, with the milk chocolate and vanilla

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall This is a creative spin on a milk stout and I like the restrained Scotch barrel tones; a bit more coffee and a bigger mouthfeel would take it to the top tier
