3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Green wood, vanilla and milk chocolate are whipped into a smooth dessert of an Imperial Stout, as roasted bitterness seals every sip.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the brown-edged black.
-Alcohol warmth appears in the finish.
-The mouthfeel is rich but not cloying.
-Wooden barrel appears a tad raw in the end.
