2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark reddish brown pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, dark sugars, slight roast into a bit of coffee, touch of acidic malt. Tate was a mix of cocoa, watery earth, some grain into toffee, dark sugar, hints of roast, finishing slightly tart, sweet. Eh.

Sampled at a tasting from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses, earthy hops, dry, decent bitterness for a stout to the finish, hides abv pretty well, decent.

Southern VT needs good beer. This is a beer but its just a big dumb beer for the sake of being a big dumb beer. Tastes like tin, cola, raisins, and aspirin. FInishes hoppy bitter or something else bitter i cant really tell.

yea this one was an old one for sure. It was my friend Ben helping me clean a little. Metallic from the age, sharpish malts, a little boozy. Subpar stout.

Half pint at the brewery. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, light bitterness and dough. Flavor the same with sort of off flavors at the end. Average texture. Not the best beer.

1 finger head. Pitch black. Nose is super chocolatey. Whoa. Insanely sweet, very sugary. I get chocolate cola and candy corn

Cask and draught at the brewery, February and March 2014
Listed as bourbon barrel Imperial Stout. Not actually sure if this is their old Imperial Stout recipe aged in bourbon (or with bourbon oak chips, whichever they’re doing), or if this is just a brand new recipe. Man was their Imperial Stout good...and this is certainly no slouch, though it’s sweeter this time around, partly due to the bourbony-oak butter and richness but also in part due to more chocolatey sweet flavors. Yes, it’s no extra dry, heavily roasted, cigars and prunes delight, but it’s still respectably well-attenuated and lacks any tacky hop resins. Actually quite low on hops in genral; just some light juicy citrus notes and a bit of acidity for balance. Chewy, supple palate. Good restraint on the barrel character.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Tap poured at Muddy Pig. Deep, dark black color expected of a stout. Great roasted malt at the forefront without being bitter. Smells sweet and that taste runs throughout. Really good beer. Let’s just call this the Jessica Alba of beers. (yes, an Alba TV series reference)

Bottle aged for 2 and a half years. Black with slight tan lacing. Nose is vanilla, toasted coffee, raisins. Taste is vanilla, coffee, leather, raisins, then opens up to a little brown sugar sweetness. Not a big finish but you get a mellow combo of earthy hops and coffee. Aging it mellowed out the sweetness and beefed up the nose.
