COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taking awesome and doubling it can only be double awesome. It’s 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 Angel’s 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 don’t swim in this beer, it swims in you!

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.

If you want a sweet stout, this is the definition, and should be known as one of the best.

majdnem fekete sör, nem túl magas, krémszerű barna habbal, öröm nézni! illatában aszalt meggyes, csokoládés, likőrös, s az íze se cáfol rá az illatban érzettekre, tán csak némi gyógynövénylikőr adódik még hozzá plusznak a töménytelen csokihoz. fantasztikus sör!

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.

Tap @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Pours black with a gorgeous, thick and creamy, mocha-colored head. Aroma is a superbly strong whiff of sweet vanilla chocolate. Just mesmerizing and enchanting. Taste follows along the same lines. Sweet with vanilla and chocolate, not cloyingly so. A lot of roast and bittersweet chocolate to balance. Just marvelous. Could drink tons. Smooth, full, some carbonation.

Poured deep dark brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of fudge, sweet alcohol soaked fruit, caramel malt. Full body, flavour as the aroma, roast malt, milk chocolate. Lovely.

very dark brown colour, half inch of brown creamy head; aroma of cherry, herbal liqueur, some vanilla, chocolate, hints of alcohol...and the expectorant of my childhood, mixtura pectoralis; taste is the same with significant bitter aftertaste follwoing the complex bittersweet taste - perfect imperial stout

For me I have to count his as my number one beer that I have enjoyed to date. Found it on tap at Tribes in Tinley park illinois. Color aroma flavor was exactly as expected from this stout but the perfect level of oaky barrel flavor was spot on for me.

Drank a shitload of this on my stag night. Totally awesome brew. Huge body, smooth as silk and perfect balance between the bourbon vanilla oak aroma’s and the roastyness of the malts. Great.
