COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
How does the big guy get through the holidays? A bit of the nip, and to celebrate Santa’s survival, this imperial stout is spiked with whiskey as well as spices to make that long winter night a lot easier to settle into. By the way, if you are drinking this on Black Friday, the dude in the Santa suit actually brewed this beer, so you know it’s good!

On tap at Shamrocks. Served a dark brown color with a small tan head and bits of wispy lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, bit nutty with a distinct whiskey fragrance. Taste of dark fruit, nuts, bit of vanilla and spice in the background. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish with a bit of whiskey that lingers. Medium body, smooth, with the whiskey becoming more pronounced as it warms. Enjoyable winter warmer with the 10% ABV sneaking up on you.

1/6/2014. On tap. Pours dark brown with a tan head. This is all about whiskey and the aromas are a bit overwhelming and muting the rest of the beer. A bit of alcohol burn too, but overall a bit off balance.

Wowsers. Tastes like what it claims to be....an imperial stout with whiskey. Oak. Quite strong.

Snifter on draft at Ciciero’s in STL. Black pour with a ghost white thick head. Aroma is strong prune beer accented with alcohol of the barrel. The flavor is is similar strong without being all alcohol with plenty of non-sweet yet strong beer. Its not intense but has a good prune and earthy flavor, again accented by alcohol off the barrel. Not thick, medium carbonation, yet felt nicely on the cheeks. Surprisingly, very well done and something I would love to drink again.

Sampled at The Stable’s Beer Lover’s Anonymous. Very dark with red and a nice tan head. A delicious aroma of dark fruit, oak, vanilla, char, and rich malt. Flavor is the same but somehow doesn’t quite work together. I like every flavor in this beer but not all together. There are so many good things but the glue that holds it together is missing.

Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is deffinatly all whiskey with a little oak and vanilla. Flavor has a more minute whiskey with more of a roasted malt and a decent amount of the oak. I was hoping for more of the whiskey that i got in the aroma to show up in the flavor but that was my only knock against this one. I did not know this was 10% till i saw it on here.

Draft served in a tulip at International Tap House-Soulard. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of vanilla, whiskey, cherries, deep roasted caramel malts, oak, and toffee. Flavor of dark fruits (cherries, plums), vanilla, oak, roasted malts, winter spices, and pine. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Really cool winter spiced imperial stout. I’d like more of this.
