COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This huge, malty Imperial stout is the Indignant before it goes into the Bourbon barrels! For the first time ever, you can try the beer before it goes into the wood. Chocolate, coffee, cherry and toffee flavors explode from the glass.

On tap at Haymarket. Black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, light oak and some toffee. Similar taste. The body was full and the finish with warming alcohol. A nice one to sip.

Poured a darker brown with a tan head. Aroma was deep dark roast, almost burnt, with a smokey ashy character. Flavor similar, a bit rough and acrid, but hid the booze well for its size.

On tap at the pub, served in a snifter. If it wasn’t black, it was close, minimal brown head. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malt, some bitter coffee, dark berries. Flavor has some coffee, molasses, caramel, moderate bitterness. Good mouthful, thick and chewy. Overall I thought this was a top notch stout. Very nicely done.

Draft to snifter at Three Floyds. Looks good; a dull dark brownish black with mocha head that dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet and malty with a bit of coffee and cherries. Nice and smooth on the palate. Good beer.
