Elijah Craig version, sampled side by side with the Heaven Hill Rye version, both thanks to Dak! Dark brown pour with a creamy head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, coffee, dark fruit and vanilla. Flavor is much the same. Roasty and delicious!

Hard not to love everything about this beer. Seriously, this brewery has mastered the art of whiskey-aged stouts. Aroma and taste both have tons of cherry cordial, toffee, dark chocolate, and molasses. Thick and sweet and hard to get out of your mouth. I want to live next door to this brewery!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 22 oz bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours black with light to moderate tan head. Aromas of rich dark roasted malts, pumpernickel/oatmeal, and alcohol. Flavors are similar with notes of toasted coconut and licorice. Big, full, and boozy. Very good but over priced - at least double that of equally good or better barrel aged Imperials.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, smallish creamy head, opaque black color, aroma of carob and dried figs, with some chocolate and coffee, flavor of coffee, dark chocolate, some chocolate cake and some cinnamon spiciness, just a bit heavy. Quite good but could be better.

Aged for about a year after purchase of the 2011 vintage. So smooth and aromatic. The malted base is delicious and light hops and roasted flavor are intense and well crafted.
