Bottle shared by Max. Kind of minty, chocolatey, boozy/vodka aroma. I just swung this up to my face and I think some of the alcohol vapors irritated my eyes. Thin palate, pretty much no carbonation unfortunately, with a coconut, peanut, lightly roasty malt flavor. The flavor is a bit of a letdown.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Its dark brown with a very small and brief head. Aroma was very roasted with notes of bourbon and wood. Flavor was a pretty big disappointment. First off the palate was watery, would never have guessed the relativly hight abv. Besides that it had some sweetness, but overall it felt quite week compared to my expectations. Think its the first time iíve been let down by this brewery though

Bottle: Pours an oily opaque black with a thin ring of off-white bubbles. Has a sweet dark caramel and smoky malty nose with lots of fresh oaky notes and a light fruity cognac nose. Starts with a rich dark caramel and dark chocolate sweetness with nice raisin and brown sugar complexity along with an assertive oaky balance before a drier, bittersweet finish with some lingering mocha. An enjoyable oaky imperial stout.
