Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pours a deep dark black with a medium tan head comprised of thick ugly soda bubbles. Plums, chocolate, and raisins on the nose. Big roast character. Finishes just barely boozy.

Thanks to Boltz. I couldn’t even get this from my lazy ass distributor. Pours like asphalt throwing a copper head gloriously into the air. Great hang time. Smells like sour stone fruit. Full nectar with creamy carbonation. This one is sweet man. Strong molasses and coffee bean with sour cherry, coconut, and cake bread as collateral damage. The finish lingers cloyingly.

Bottle 607 or 1152.
Pours a deep black with a rich creamy brown head. Aroma is bourbon, wood, roasted barley, molasses, fruits. Flavor is fruits, bourbon, barrel, roast, chocolate. Sticky brown lacing galore clings to the side of my snifter. Nice creamy slick mouthfeel and very well balanced. Fantastic Imperial Stout, wish I had bought more of this while it was around.

750ml via trade, I believe with tytoanderson. 70th rating of this brew, another impy and another Big Sky Beer. Shared with dalekliz. Beautifal pour, black with a 2 finger head. Nose is sweet with a big punch of bourbon, nice nose, big sky, nice nose indeed. Taste is sweet and slightly bourbonny with a nice choco feeling. I gotta say I like this a lot, more than I expected. Quite good, and dalekliz likes it too.
