I won a 4pck of this beer from the OSU vs. UK Basketball game.....GO BUCKS! It poured an opaque dark with tan head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent had dark chocolate, roast and molasses. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with dark chocolate malt base and subtle roast, peat and molasses highlights. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

From the growler via Jungle Jim's Eastgate in a snifter. This mighty nice
imperial stout pours a deep blackish brown with subtle cola highlights
and a moderate head of khaki tan foam that settles to a thick ring,
sparse thin pooling layer, and shows subtle light lacing. Nose of
dark raisin bread, dark chocolate, light char, deep roast, and subtle
booze notes. Flavors exceed the nose with a dark raisin note awash
in dark rye bread and dark chocolate with touches of coffee and surrounded
by deep roast and moderate char amid a warming slow burning booze.
Hops present themselves more with cold than warmth showing a
moderately bitter pine and herbal hop that dissipates with warmth
giving way to more roasted elements. Very nice mouth feel; light
carbonation that is just enough to give this imperial a lift, coating,
smooth, lightly slick, full body, and a nicely roasted finish.

Overall, a perfect imperial worthy of giving a shot.

Cheers
