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.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
12 oz waxed bottle served in a FW tulip. We did a side by side with the base beer. A: Pours a jet black with a quick dissolving dark mocha head forming on the pour. A very thin ring is left over that leaves no lace, but there are some nice legs. S: Really smooth and sweet bourbon up front. Chocolate, roasted malts and oak. Dark chocolate and raisins on the finish. T: Bourbon up front like the nose, but again, it’s very smooth and sweet. Just a touch of heat comes from it. Sweet caramel and oak barrel. Coffee like dark chocolate with a little bitterness to it. The finish is toffee and raisin. M: Thick and heavy bodied. Creamy mouthfeel with a medium to low carbonation level. O: The barrel aging really took this beer to another level with out sacrificing the complexities of the base beer. I’m glad it still retained the body that regular Plead the 5th carries. A must try.

jredmond (5915) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Sampled at GABF 2012 with Moreau, Andrew and Sofia. Pours a pitch black body with thin chocolate brown lacing. Aroma is straight bourbon, sweet chocolate, and some deep espresso in the back. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with the bourbon really taking control, but still balancing nicely with the chocolate. Awesome.
