COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taking awesome and doubling it can only be double awesome. Itís math. This is essentially the 35K recipe doubled. Double roasty, double chocolatey, double creamy, double delicious. Then we decided to make it 2.5X awesome by aging it in Angelís Envy barrels for a really, really long time. The bourbon and oak flavors perfectly compliment the massive flavors in the double mega imperial milk stout. You donít swim in this beer, it swims in you!

Draft at uber. Pours jet black with virtually no head or lace. Big roasty earthy chocolatey nose. Sticky thick body, low carb. Earthy sweet roasty chocolatey mid palate. Long earthy finish.

ACHops (642) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2014
On tap @ Uber. Pours thick pitch black with super thin mocha head. Aroma is giant dark roasty chocolate malt, aged bourbon, and strong coffee, booze emanating from it. The nose on this beer jumps out of the glass... Taste is big juicy chocolate, rich creamy malt, light soy sauce notes, just enough hops to keep things in balance, and thick sweet bourbon flavor that lingers in the finish. Huge beer. Not quite as nuanced as the best imperial stouts, but this is appropriately large and flavorful. Monster beer. This has piqued my interest in Against the Grain...

On tap. Almost black with a light head and good lacing. Lots of chocolate, vanilla, grain and a good bit of bourbon. Rich and creamy. A big bold beer.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #8. Draft at The Beer Trappe, Lexington. Pours a very dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, whiskey. The taste is big bourbon notes, wood, roasted malts, bitter chocolate, vanilla. Medium bodied, decent balance. Alcohol presence is there but not over the top. Nice beer.

dark brown with a thin layer of head. rich aroma of chocolate and bourbon. taste followed suit with a nice woody barrel character. balance of sweetness, which is a characteristic of angel envy bourbon in general. solid beer

Simply awesome. Boosey, yet balanced. It got better as it warmed up. A great beer. Kind of reminded me of a low alcohol Black Tuesday. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Against the Grain Brewery, Louisville Kentucky served in a snifter glass, 5 ounce? I like everything about this double Imperial Stout. Pours black with a small dark head. Malty dark chocolate, bourbon. Sweet. Not better. No aftertaste. Good finish. You would never guess it is 13% ABV.

Yes and yes.... ATG kills is most all the time and not unlike Bo & Luke, 70k knocks it out of the park. Big bro to 8+ % 35k, the 70 sits strong at 13% and taste like it. Those of us with a pair that can handle an imperial like this, certainly appreciate it.
