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.

Prufrockstar (1994) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2015
2011 bottle. Sorry Eugene, meant to save this for you, but tonight was the night. Thick dark pour, minimal brown head. Aroma brings chocolate, caramel, cookie dough - minimal oxidation in nose. Roast is in background. Taste is moderately sweet, rich chocolate; oxidation in check. Full body, soft carbonation, silky smooth texture. Overall: this is pretty damned delicious.

4oz pour at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a dark, oil black color, velvet head. Aroma was rich dark chocolate with roasted malts. Lots of roast. Dark brown sugar notes, sweetness. Some earthy hops are in there. Flavor was pretty tasty - light woody notes, chocolate, with molasses, light coffee notes. Liked it.

I know all you other "awesome sauce" beer buys will be able to pick out the chocolate, or cherries, or coffee. ....... I can’t. I just like beer. I like Imperial ale and Imperial Stout. And this for me is damn good beer! Only other one that I have had (to date) that is better is Againt the grain 70k. If you trip across this one please buy it.
