3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Four Peaks in Tempe, pours black with a small tan / brown head. Aroma is huge, with harsh alcohol, loads of bourbon, and roast. Flavour is hugely barrel-heavy and boozy, with tons of roast, bourbon and alcohol. Hard to remember when I had a BA impie this boozy and harsh. It’s quite tasty for what it is - but I couldn’t drink much. Solid brutal beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 didn’t live up to what I’d heard beforehand.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 I’m loving the taste of this.
