"The Professor Belgian-style imperial stout with cherries aged in pinot noir barrels."

On tap at the brewery. Darkest brown with a sudsy tan head. Cocoa powder aroma with coffee roast and some woody wine influence. Earthy malty flavor, roasted burnt coffee, vinous wood, jammy berry wine notes, black cherry yogurt, iodine, pepper. More bready and fruity than your typical dark chocolate/espresso/alcohol bomb imperial stout. Lots going on here, but the barrel and fruit are subtle on the whole. Nice smooth Belgian carbonation and body.
