Pours a rich and thinner dark brown and sits near black in the glass with a thick finger of light tan foam.

Sweet chocolate and vanilla notes meld wonderfully with a slight spicy character of rye whiskey.

Oak, vanilla, rye, rye whiskey, cocoa, and love all intermingle with a delicious complexity and wonderful balance.

Full-bodied, low carbonation, rich, slightly chewy, sweet, delicious.

Overall, a delicious home run for a local brewery. Definitely give this one a try!

Draft at Fischmans.

Brownish black, mocha tinged foam that laces a little bit here and there.
Roasty aroma, sweet chocolate, chicory, carob.

Mild coffee in the taste, chocolate and dry roastiness in the aftertaste.
Up front it's a little sweet for my taste. Medium bodied with a creamy feel.

Tasted in a 9 oz snifter from draft at Consume on February 11, 2017. Look is dark brown with a thin tan head and little lacing. Smell and taste is dark roasted malts. Feel is full in body.

Dark in color - looks dark and rich like a chocolate truffle. Medium coffee nose with cocoa and mocha notes. The mocha esque feel comes through with the smooth mouthfeel and the deep full flavor. An excellent imperial stout. Hits all the right notes without going overboard on the booziness.

Poured from bomber bottle no. 1176 of 2200 into a whiskey glass, about a 5 oz. pour. Pours silky black with a thin tan head. Smells wonderful, like a manhattan maybe :). Tastes similar enough to a bourbon barrel aged stout. Very smooth and definitely a sipper. Probably the only time I will ever have it, so special thanks to my brother, Tom.

2015 Double Rye vintage, poured into a snifter. Looks like a typical RIS. Thick, viscous, a tan head and not a lot of lacing. Smell is mostly of rye whisky and boozy, I find it a bit off putting and slightly detracting from the taste. Taste is surprisingly not as boozy as the smell. Rye whisky is certainly there, but is a less prominent note. Typical heavily roasted malts with very subtle hints of chocolate, vanilla and just the tiniest suggestion of caramel. Sweeter than I expected, but overall very well balanced. Overall I found this to be a very nice offering. There are better barrel-aged offerings in the world, but this was not hard to acquire and is worth picking up.
