Pours super dark with a small tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, vanillla, coffee, etc. Flavor is divine. Very silky and thick palate. Another wonderful beer from Michigan! Possibly one of my favorites of this miraculous style.

Dark brown pour from the bottle, thanks Glenn for the share, and made a for a great car ride, aromas of roast, coffee, bourbon, light earth and a touch of vanilla. Flavors follow suit, a light oxidation flavor in the aftertaste, but still a solid beer over all.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2008 vintage bottle. The aroma has subtle bourbon with nice malt nose. The pour is very dark with a head that is light, but settles around the rim. The taste is amazing, I was really thrown back by this. The bourbon is subdue thanks to the aging, but perfect. This gives me super high hopes to age some of the newer bottles for a long time. I forgot exactly that I was cracking a 2008 vintage bottle, but sure glad I did.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2007 vintage 22oz for an awesome friend. Poured this one in an oversized wine glass. Dark brown pour, almost black with a coffee ice cream colored head. Just a ring lingers around. The burbon aroma has dissipated and transformed into huge vanilla, dark fruits, and candy. Some chocolate is present but just slightly. Wow, how smooth this drinks! Caramel, slight roast, and mellow burbon all make an appearance. If you still have this vintage I would say, consume now. What a treat

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark brown beer with a red tinge and a small tan head. The aroma is alcohol, prunes, and anise. The flavor is roasted, caramel, overripe fruit, wood, and a slight bitterness. I like an imperial that is not so overpowering, and this one fits the bill nicely.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 22oz bottle from Pick’s Liquors poured into a snifter. The head is a very dark tan, frothy with good lacing. The color is black, very dark black. The aroma is sweet, caramel and whisky tones. Slightly sweet and heavily bitter with a slight aftertaste of salt. Full bodied with a thick texture, it has soft carbonation with a long finish. Overall, this beer is awesome. You can definite taste the oak barrels. At 5 bucks a bottle, if you can still find this one its a definite buy!
