Sounds weird, but it just smells smooth. Oak, roasted malt, coffee, tobacco, chocolate...it is all well balanced and definitely doesn?t some across hot considering the abv. Really impressive.

Bottle. 2012. Soy sauce. Opaque black body. Tastes far better than it smells. Rich, milk chocolate with some malt in the finish. Really unbelievably outstanding and doesn’t taste as strong as it is.

Russian Imperials are all pretty delicious, but this is a complex, flavorful new factories (along with Ten Fidy. Speaking of which, I'm drinking this at OB for my rehearsal dinner. Thanks for getting the tab, Mom and Dad!).

22 oz bottle. Pours an opaque pitch black. Beige head is lasting with minimal lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, prominent bourbon aroma. Flavor is absolutely fabulous. This is the ideal flavor and complexity for a barrel aged stout. The standard for all other stouts to be measured.

Nose is oak, campfire, and sweet raisins. Taste is suprisingly nice, charred oak followed by a mild achohol burn, slight chocolate aftertaste.
