Draft in a taster at the Wilson Taproom. Pours a deep brown color with a small beige head and amber highlights around the edges. Aroma of toasted sugar, caramel, oak, leaves, and nuts. Flavor of vanilla, molasses, oak, brown sugar, chocolate, and caramel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, sticky mouthfeel. Good barrel-aged imperial stout but didnt live up to what Id heard beforehand.

Ibrew2or3 (6854) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Pours up at AZ Strong Ale Fest 2014 with a deep dark mahogany colored body that supports a light mocha head of foam. The aroma offers up a nice mix of dark malts and smooth sweet bourbon barrel notes as well as lesser notes of spicy black strap molasses, sweet caramel malts and vanilla. The taste is a rich mix of malts and smooth sweet bourbon barrel and vanilla and malt sweetened oaky goodness. The smooth bourbon gets to be a little more forward to midway and into the finish. Wow, this is smooth and sweet and rich and delicious. Dang, a few more sips and Im loving the taste of this.

On tap at the brewery! Pours black with thin tan head. Smells of dark fruit, oak, vanilla and big booze. Fills the mouth with sweet chocolate, oak, vanilla and a little caramel with big booze, roasted malts and coffee are also enjoyed. The best Four Peaks has to offer. Great beer!
