COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This liquid is the alpha and the omega; you need nothing else. Our flagship imperial stout has been aged in charred American oak bourbon barrels with African cacao nibs and locally roasted coffee. Dark, bitter cocoa blends with sweet malt; robust coffee mellows in the presence of oak-imparted vanilla and bourbon flavors. Enjoy this one at the end of a fine meal with good friends.

Draft at fire works. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Big bourbon on the nose. Lots of bourbon on the tongue along with the roasted malt. Not getting the coffee notes though the malt does suggest chocolate. Hides it's booze well. Nice overall but only solid for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
