$?

Deep brown with a minor ring of head and minor lacing.

Nose is sweet bourbon mixed with oak, a bit of vanilla, a bit of coffee, and a touch of figs.

Taste is similar to the nose with caramel bourbon accented by oak, vanilla, coffee, and nice dark fruit.

Mouthful is heavy and smooth. Carbonation is average. Finish is semi sweet.

I always love finding really well done beers from smaller breweries. This is one such beer. Balanced and boozy. Sweet and drinkable. Highly recommended.

Delicious brew. It's Big Shanty on steroids. Great blend of taste and feel. You taste every sweet nectar of chocolate and raisin and as it warms up it drink better. A must have beer

I can't say enough great things about this beer. Beautiful color, perfect carbonation, rich aroma, fantastic flavor. I hope they brew this one again soon.

Perfectly balances coffee and chocolate with a bit of honey sweetness. Superb, silky mouth feel. Highly recommended

waxed bomber into a tulip. bottle 45/95

pours a pitch black with a nice beige head. smell of vanilla and coffee. taste is big on coffee at first, then I get a slight amount of bourbon on the back with a good amount of sweetness from the honey and a lasting vanilla after taste. a lot going on here and it definitely works well. big bodied, mild carbonation.

overall a real nice imperial stout. recommended.
