COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a big and full bodied Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels with lots of roasted malts, but very balanced with heavy hops. Brewed with a top secret root, this beer has an amazingly complex flavor that you must wait for.

Whisky, Oily, Coffee mocha, burnt flavours, vanilla and custard, cocoa nibs, flinty, dryish alcohol finish. Pretty smooth for such a big sipper.

Bottle - Dark cocoa and some roast. Deep jet black with a rich brown head. Sweet dark cocoa notes and nice light boozy heat. It’s pretty nice.

Very whiskey roasted smells. Black non see through with tan head. Rich roasted wood fades to a big bourbon finish with out get to bitter in any direction.

Smells like really old wood furniture. Heavy body, but not thick and chewy. Raisins. Dark black. No head. So smooth for a BA. Strong bourbon notes, but not boozy. Oak. I wish I had this next to a BCBS. Thx Malster85 for this want.

sampler from Patrick thank you. poured a deep black low carbonation brown head. deep roasted malts, chocolate malts lots of goodness and even a little bitterness from the hops. the flavor is immaculate. the purest form of imperial stout imaginable. silky smooth with a hop kick. roast malts and chocolate slide off the tongue I still have 2 bottles from 2014. truly amazing stout.
