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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Draft sample at Three Floyds. Pours oily black in color with a small creamy khaki head. The aroma has chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, dark fruits favoring black cherry, coffee, molasses and alcohol. The flavor has dark chocolate, roasted malts, dark caramel, molasses, black cherry, moderate sweetness, with a thick mouth feel. Earthy bitterness to the finish. Solid Imperial stout.

Bottle shared at RBWG. Thanks to the kind soul who opened it. Pours a hazy stout brown with a tan head. Nose is sweet chocolate, light booze, some roast, and some oaky whiskey. Flavor is similar with chocolate, some booze, some fruit, and some oak with hints of whiskey. Medium in body and nice overall.

On draught at Gigantic’s Chicagoland Beers event at Apex. Deep dark black with brown head. Aroma of chocolate, dark cherry, and bourbon. Flavor starts with a chocolate covered cherry then morphs into molasses and vanilla. Finishes smooth and boozy.

Sampled FOBAB ’12 - reading through the program (which is becoming more and more brutal as the number of beers seems to exponentially increase and there’s no list prior to entering the fest) I see something from Haymarket aged in barrels formerly housing port - nuff said! Pours black with a deep tan head. Aroma is enticing and bold - loads of sweet malt, chocolate, some dark fruits (cherry was notable). Flavor is quite good as well - chocolate, sweet and roasty malts, vanilla, coffee. Picked up the slightest of metallic notes that, while not a game stopper, wouldn’t get out of my head... Palate is pretty darn rich while not overwhelming and has a long, roasted finish - very warming and a bit boozy at the end. Good, if not excellent IS

Excellent! Malty imperial stout. More chocolate than coffee. Slight cherry and toffee flavones as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
