2008 version poured at the April Portland BA Tasting at BeerMongers thanks to Luke.

Seriously, this was the best imperial stout I've ever had. The mouthfeel was the real high point, and I wish there was a way to rate it a 6. This beer is milk smooth. Unbelievable. The bourbon was present but not overwhelming, the coffee was still available if you really taste closely, and the vanilla flavors from the barrel were perfect. A one shot that won't be found again. Epic.

Vintage '03. Thanks Nick!

Pours an oily black with a thick espresso head. Excellent lace and retention.

Nose has freah roated coffee, bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark pitted fruits, chocolate, dark candies, big malts and molasses.

Beautiful blend of espresso, wood, whiskey, vanilla, plums, figs, dates, roasty malts, cocoa, caramel and toffee.

Thick, creamy body is perfectly carbonated. Perhaps a bit past age, but still a lovely beer. Peaks closer to 5 years.
