On tap.

Black color. Thick.

Strong, warming, lots of barrel and bourbon. Vanilla, fudge, cake. The brown sugar and Belgian candi syrup show. Has a cola/dr pepper flavor finish. I’m always a bit skeptical with the “other natural flavors”. This was nice in a small dose.

A very good base stout. Unfortunately too sweet. I would welcome them to try again with a little less toffee and a less sweetness.

neat that this is a collaboration with angry chair, their stuff is hard to come by in these parts, but im not in love with the beer, its thick as taffy, a little forced and over flavored to me, not as natural seeming on some of the elements, perhaps a little overdone overall, with some exposed alcohol adding unneeded intensity to an already really bold drink, fun to sip on a few ounces of, but thats darn near the upper limit of this one for most mortal men i have to think. inky and viscous and leggy in the glass, seriously dense, with very little head and an oily sort of slickness to it. big vanilla in the nose, molasses and the brown sugar coming out, a lot of malt richness, concentrated maybe boiled forever, faint coconut, dark cocoa, cola, tobacco, and coffee beans, lots going on but real boozy and sweet is my main impression here, not poorly refined or anything, just colossal. the taste hits all at once, and for how big and ingredient driven it is, its kind of monotone to me, espresso and dark chocolate, the candy sugar and the brown sugar together with the sticky middle malt, vanilla all through it, chocolate fudge, subtle maple, but like its there and then its permanent, not a lot of evolution until some late onset roasty bitterness doing its best to give this some semblance of balance. sweet on the teeth, hot in the throat, heavy in the belly. definitely a wintertime beer, good without being amazing, less barrel character than anticipated but i get more and more of it as this warms. this seems kind of just huge for the sake of it, not a passion project or anything, it feels trend chasing rather and inspired and artistic, even if the overall execution is solid. is that overly critical? perhaps, but thats the vibe i get from this. a little goes a very long way, i think its a bit overrated here on BA...

16oz can pours out midnight-black with a small ring of khaki head. Strong, sweet impressions of candi sugar, molasses, brown sugar, toffee, caramel, and dark chocolate. Vanilla pops onto the scene on the palate as a nice warming oak/spirit barrel characteristic blends with that ever-present brown sugar and toasted caramel toffee. Borderline cloying but the barrel is an excellent addition to this one, brings some warming balance and complexity to a brew that was really just sugary sweet toffee originally.

16 ounce can into a snifter. Canned 2/4/23, had 5/19/23.

Pours near black and mostly opaque, with no head and no lacing. Aromas of brown sugar, malt, chocolate, toffee, caramel, oak, some bourbon. Similar flavors: brown sugar, caramel, toffee, malt, bourbon, chocolate, some oak. It’s fairly sweet. Smooth, a very good fuller body, appropriately carbonated.

The brown sugar is too dominant, and it’s pretty sweet, but overall this is really good. The barrels are a little restrained, but effective. Well worth a purchase.

Canned on 2/4/2023. Poured into a snifter at 61°. The color is dark walnut. The medium-mocha cap fizzed away almost immediately. Great nose featuring dark chocolate, toffee, vanilla, nutty char, and noticeable bourbon. The flavor is equally outstanding with sweet dark chocolate, brown sugar, and roasted nuts. I think the term "toffee" is overused but it's spot-on here. The flavor reminds me of a Heath Bar. The bourbon influence is strong but it doesn't overwhelm the other flavors. There is a slight bitter char at the finish. This Stout has a moderately thick and creamy feel with a low level of carbonation, and it's impressive how well the 14.9% ABV is hidden. It's neither hot nor obviously boozy. Overall, this Stout is a true work of art made by two breweries renowned for the style. I was thrilled to find it locally.

2-Pack from the Minneapolis area, $8/beer. Beer was served at 40-50 degrees in a 12oz cocktail glass.

Opening the can gives a nice pop but not much carbonation release. Initial scent is coffee-like mixed with brown sugar. It does give the toffee vibes like the name suggests. The alcohol is detectable pre-pour but it isn't overpowering.

The pour resulted in a 1cm head on top of a sea of dark chocolate with caramel colored edges. The head dissipates rather quickly and the aroma isn't as powerful as one would think.

The first sip gives way to a moderate, but not too sweet and velvety smooth experience. The prickle from the carbonation and alcohol is miniscule. There is a slight roasted flavor, a gentle warmth despite the ABV being 14.9%, and the brown sugar makes an appearance and lingers after the swallow. The Candi Syrup flavor shows up to the party about 30 seconds after the swallow with emphasis on the syrup. At first I thought it reminded me of cough syrup but that sense went away quickly. I'm not sure which syrup they used but it is probably either the D180 or D240 Candi syrup. There is zero sediment in this beer but I wish there was.

This beer seems to me to be in the more neutral category for imperial stouts. It's a BA but with a broadly appealing flavor profile that I think most stout lovers would enjoy. The ABV being higher means you only need 1 can to feel good and the overall beer is an enjoyable sip. This is a hit and I would buy again.
