Draft at Speakeasy. Rich deep viscous black pour with nice darker tan head that falls to a thin layer pretty quickly. Nose of deep roast, touch of chocolate and dried raisins soaked in vanilla infused bourbon. Good thicker mouth feel, carbonation is a bit lively for the style. Boozey dark fruit, licorice, charred malt. Finishes too ashy and with harsh vodka booze for me. Taste way hotter than 9.5%.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is very bold. I get some big chocolate and roasted malt as well as some oak and a light bit of soy sauce. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon and oak, dark chocolate and coffee notes, light vanilla, and some light notes of bitterness. Flavor the same with a very nice bourbon note to blend with the imperial stout. Smoother texture. A solid beer.

Bottle silver wax. A little booze underneath strong raisin and and earthy aromas. Taste is pretty sweet with a dry light finish. First sip is awesome, after that its a little less so.
