What can I say? A major player.
It's May, and the canning date is November.
Nice pour. Rich, opaque chocolate in a Stone RIS glass with a 3F head that lasted a while. This is the way I like my beers to look.

Deep chocolate, roasted malt aroma.

Liquid candy bar taste. Layered flavor. Indicative of expert brewing. Peanut-chocolate.
Sweet, which shows up in the aroma with warming.

Roasted malt, with a good bitter finish.

Ivy League Imperial stout. Right there at the top of the graduating class.

19.2oz stovepipe can served in a large snifter. Canned on 11/04/16. "Rum Ham! I'm sorry!"

Pours black with no head. Smell is bourbon -- vanilla, chocolate and roast, yeast. Smells like a nice standard bourbon barrel aged stout.

Taste is much the same. Roasty, chocolatey, vanilla and booze, not a lot to say about it, but it's good.

Mouthfeel is thick, not quite syrupy, smooth and slick. Overall, good beer.
