Very Good
Notes: Layoffs and termination, please accept my resignation. No severance package? My credit has been damaged. The Bankers will demand their payment once you receive their monthly statement. I can’t even afford the minimum payment. Bankruptcy is an imperial stout without restraint at 12 percent I have no complaints. It pours as dark as a moonless night. Tell me this isn’t right. I cannot meet my obligations when they are due. What else can I do? I therefore declare bankruptcy.

This Imperial Stout of eminent force spent 6 months absorbing intense vanilla, bourbon, and oak notes from the fresh Wyoming Whiskey barrels.

750 ml bottle from Rare Beer Club. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is of whiskey, roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate and brown sugar. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of wood, whiskey, nutty, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit and herbal hops. Finish is long and bitter-sweet. Great RIS.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours an extremely dark brown with 1 inch mocha head that fairly quickly recedes to a thin skim.
S: Wood char, dark chocolate, whiskey, molasses, vanilla, and a hint of dark roast coffee. Potent!
T: Dark chocolate, whiskey, wood char, dark roast coffee with cream, vanilla, molasses, and a hint of dark dried fruit.
M: Medium-heavy body. Darkly sweet with some roasted char bitterness and enough boozy whiskey to make sure you understand this one means business. Lingers nicely on the palate.
D: What a pleasant surprise! Excellent example of style. Tremendous sipper...even on a hot summer evening.

Pours an opaque black with a minimal tan head.
The aroma is chocolate and toasty with hints of oak, dark fruit and a hint of vanilla.
Taste follows the nose. Roast coffee, dark chocolate, char, brown sugar and a finishing note of roasted marshmallow. A bit boozy with the barrel coming through as well. Perhaps a touch too sweet.
Moutfeel is medium, smooth and creamy.
Excellent stout.
