Thank you, Shrubber!
Pours see-thru dark brown, dark tan head.
Aroma of banana nut bread, slightly sour dark fruit.
Taste is nutty, bready, sweet...dark fruited.
Slightly dry-alcohol feel.
Not exactly what I’d peg as an Imperial Stout, but awfully darn good.

Yeasty and fun! This is not what I was expecting from Sam Adams. I bought the bottle from FoodTown. Raisin? It’s good! $9.99 in Harlem.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Belgian yeast, molasses malt, and oak, and light alcohol aroma. Mahogany with a small tan head. Sweet molasses heavy brown sugar, roasty malt, Belgian yeast, sour oak, and slight anise flavor. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. A little too sweet for my taste, and I wasn’t digging the anise flavor.

Bottle share. White wine grape nose, but a weird dry tart cherry trailing. Super different. Taste is more tart and wine-dry. Absolutely the most rogue impy stout I've had. But so good!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark fruits and alcohol on the nose. Fruity, caramel and alcohol taste. Major carbonation on palate. Overall good beer, but expensive for what you get. Better stuff out there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Spicy chocolate, caramel, malt, oak, and alcohol aroma. Very dark chestnut with small head. Sweet milk chocolate syrup, roasted malt, and strong wood flavor. Not bad - on the sweet side.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pours a dark brown color with a light brown, foamy head that leaves behind some decent lacing. Aroma is yeast, malts, some cocoa, and sweetness. There is a lesser robust taste than expected with a decent amount of spices mixed with sweet malts. The texture is very Belgian indeed. Probably the most interesting of the Barrel Room Collection brews.
