I really wanted to like this beer. It is a very complex beer, however it is too astringent (bitter) and I could never overcome this barrier to the other flavors in the beer.
I have another bottle, and will give it some time and come back to it as it might be a pallet issue.

Sweet. Served too cold, but once it warmed up had lots of sweet raisiny vanilla oaky flavors. A good slow dessert drink. Foundation hotel. Detroit, July 2018

This is just always good to drink. If I ever want a barrel aged Imperial Stout that I know will be consistently good, this is my go to beer. Good taste, great price. Just a nice mouth feel that tastes delicious each sip.
