22 oz bottle poured, to celebrate Bengals 2016 touchdown #3. 1 year of age on this bottle. Gio. Pours midnight black with no head to speak of. Huge Bourbon aroma with a maple constant. Flavor is a rich chocolate, strong oak, maple, and potent bourbon. Has a slight doughy element. Slightly smokey. Overall a fun imperial, but not too memorable.
