Bottle gift from SJ. This was a cool concept. Nice notes of wheat, rye, roast , nut and vanilla. The bod is mediu - thick and the finish was a nice biting whisikey...yet not overbearing.

Strong alcohol, roasted nuts aroma. Pours thick and dark brown with a tan head. Nice blend of flavors, nuts and bourbon with a strong alcohol finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel.

From notes; Due to my prejudice of adding weird flavors to beer, I didn’t expect much, but this was suprisingly fantastic! It could almost make me like wheat beer...The pecan and bourbon go together so well with the malt...but it’s still not too sweet somehow. Wish I’d bought more.

Bottle served in a sniffer. Classic imp stout appearance: Dark and murky. Medium sized head. Nose of pecans, licorice and roasted malts. The flavor is big and medium-plus sweet. Huge mouthfeel. FYI, this is an alcoholic beverage. Thick, full body. Sticky texture and a long, VERY BOOZY, roasty bitter finish. And they put this beast in a 22. What were they thinking...

This is almost overreaching. As a tremendous geek, I loved the idea of Ensign Wesley Crusher designing a beer for me. This is a sipper that takes a little while to get used to. Pours an oil black thickness with coffee and bourbon aromas that burn my nostrils. Taste is ethanol and coffee at first, once the beer begins to warm and open up a little, the vanilla and fruit come out. Nice but too much for me.

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with fading tan froth. Nose is chocolate liqueur, molasses, hay and bourbon. Medium to full body with a warming tang finishing dry and a bit chalky. Taste is chocolate, rye and bourbon. Mild notes of licorice and toasted nuts. Too much booze and roast but i still like it.

Aroma is slight bourbon and nutty (pecan). Very smooth for a 13% brew. Slightly roasty, subtle bourbon, and a hint of pecans. All together, and it leaves a little coconut taste. Excellent.
