4.9
The pour was nice and weighty, without much carbonation. The body was deep red, resembling a ripa, with one finger of light brown head. Scent is pleasent pine aroma on the backbone of deep biscuit malt. Mouthfeel is very full, but not heavy, this has all the depth of an imperial but there is no real alcohol burn, which is very deceptive. Taste is unique, lots of bitter notes, not much in the way of a fruity presence, but lots of rich maltiness. Deep biscuit with a caramel sweetness. Very warming and I can't wait to have it again.

Poured very well, very full, like thick oil. Left a deep black body with trace elements of a chocolate head. Scent is deep chocolate malt, roast espresso and all held together with the punchy alcohol kick. Mouthfeel is slick but pumped up with a light carbonation. Taste starts with the ABV kick but it is quickly pushed aside for the deep roast malts. Bitter chocolate fades to make way for dry, roasted coffee leaving a bitter, dryness in your mouth at the end. A very nice imperial stout.

A great pour that was so black and thick that it was like crude oil. Remaining body had trace elements of a chocolate coloured head and slight carbonation in the glass. Scent is bountiful chocolate on a backbone of deep roasted malts, slight coffee finish mingling with the bourbon as it hits the back of your nose. Mouthfeel is thinner than expected but still very imposing. Taste is a beautiful collision of smooth chocolate and intensity of the whiskey burn. The aftertaste is largely roasted coffee, very dry, very excellent. This is a great barrell aged stout and is available year round.

Foamy pour leaving a jet black body with a chocolate brown head that settled to one finger. Scent is strong roasted notes, lots of deep coffee with sweet chocolate finishing on the nose. Mouthfeel is very smooth and taste is a sublime mix of bitter roast coffee which gives way to a nice alcohol burn, which is then softened by the sweet chocolate. A great number.

A mellow pour with a settled finger of pale head. Body is very dark red, more rich brown than red and with very little carbonation. Aroma is deep caramel with a pine hoppiness running through it. The taste suffers some dilution to the aroma, maybe a bad can, which doesn't balance with the heavy 7.2% character. Would try again.
