4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
"Poured a black no light came through. Tan head which left a little lacing. Aroma was of chocolate coffee and something. Flavor was liquor like with banilla, chocolate was weak in the flavor. Creamy creamy mouthfeel."

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(From Notes) Thick, opaque dark brown with a full, fluffy brown head. Decadent, robust nose of cocoa powder, coffee, vanilla, whiskey, molasses and a touch of alcohol. Like all cask-conditioned Imperial Stout I’ve had, the body is elegant, creamy, smooth, supple and truly splendid. The cocoa, vanilla, whiskey and coffee mix quite nicely to produce a tasty, pleasant barrel-aged Imperial Stout. I was a bit skeptical going into this, but I was not let down. Another winner from Pete Crowley at Rock Bottom.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured opaque black with a fluffy tan head, but it left no lacing on my mug. Complex aroma of whiskey, oatmeal, chocolate and coffee. Heavy whiskey notes in the taste was backed by vanilla and chocolate with a creamy oatmeal mouthfeel. This was a terriffic stout and the whiskey was ever present.
