COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fortunate is he, who in the name of brewing and good beer, shepherds the weak through the valley of macrobrews. For he is truly his brother’s keeper, and the finder of lost taste buds. Stout aged in Whiskey barrels.

Pours thick black with a small brown ring. As soon as I open it, I can smell the canadian whiskey. There’s also aromas of chocolate tootsie rolls, molasses, and wood. The taste is chocolate, whiskey, licorice, and vanilla. Really great barrel quality to this one.

@basunen: trevlig doft av kaffe och fat. Smaken är dog ganska lätt men trevliga toner av fat, kaffe och mjölkchoklad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz growler, shared. Pours black color, nice thin brown head. Some dots of lace. Awesome whiskey nose.. Big vanilla, marshmallow, dark chocolate in the aroma. Rich, gooey brownies. Beautiful texture. Velvety, silky smooth, as smooth as Silk Porter, but with a much more massive flavor. Light carbonation. Full, thick chewy body. Big bitter taste, some light but pleasant alcohol warmth. Fantastic, delicious stuff. Better than expected, even. KBS has nothing on this... Significantly better than the standard BA Boris, too, so much more complex. Dan H. took a taste... Coffee, bitter chocolate, smoke, he says, I see that. Super good. One of the best BA imperial stouts I’ve had.

22 ounce bottle pour. Pours a viscous black with a dark khaki colored head of foam. Aroma has raisins, plums, raspberry jam, bitter earthy coffee. Tastes roasty sweet with an earthy bitterness in the finish. Lingering aftertaste. Awesome!
