I let this one cellar for a while before finally opening it today. The label suggests Valentines day, but I waited a little longer to be rebellious. The appearance once poured into an imperial pint glass was black as night with a slight caramel colored head that settled to a thin layer on top. The aroma was molasses and honey with some chocolate notes and the slightness of raspberries, wonderful! I let it sit for a few minutes longer and then began to take small sips to appreciate this one. The taste was sweet, but not cloying, well balanced and the aroma matched the taste profile pretty consistently. It did not have that overly burned taste that some Imperial Stouts have, it was smooth and easily drinkable but you would have to be careful with this one because at 10 percent you could get yourself into some trouble. Unique among Imperial stouts because this one drinks much smoother and easier than many I have had. It would be a great dessert beer to end the night. Overall Olde Hickory has hit another home run.

Thanks to FUwolfpacker for the trade and hooking me up with this beer. This was a fantastic stout! The flavors were were great. Poured nice and thick, big smell of raspberry, but not overpowering. Taste...right on...everythign was very very balanced...so much so that it tasted as if the recipe for the beer was measured out and test so that it was perfect...really nice! Overall, my first beer from Old Hickory and it was great!!!
