The 3rd and final release of our "Notorious Chicago" series. This bourbon barrel aged RIS is full bodied and full flavored. Hints of dark fruits as well as toasted coconut and vanilla from the barrels. If not careful this beer could lead you to your notorious demise.
This special version was served via cask and aged with choocolate and chiles to create a "Mole" interpretation

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 1st rater. It was cool to catch this on a short trip to Chi-town. Drank it side by side with the Bourbon version of the base beer. Color is dark brown. In general this is a a dry light impy stout with a roasted aroma dominating. It was rather light on the flavor (I mean its a brown Imperial Stout). As a good medium, not heavy body. Would have guest an impy brown. The pepper was felt lightly at the very end of the flavor. No more chocolate than normal as far as I could tell. Balanced and subtle.
