Sampled at a recent tasting. Not sure who brought this but thank you! All the good qualities you look for in an imperial stout are there: oily lacing, aroma of whiskey and woody notes, slight chocolate etc. All well balanced!

No smokiness, just a weak and bland stout that has oxidized over the years.
