"Close to Black Tuesday, very sweet and bourbony with some chocolate and roast, with the addition of ample roasted hazelnuts in the nose and flavor. Not really better or worse, but a nice change up. Great beer, not quite black. Still think 13-15% would be better than 18-19, but what’d ya gonna do?"

Bottle from homer321. Thanks! Split two ways. This is a heavy hitter to say the least. Pours a thick dark brown with almost no head. Aromas of boozy bourbon, peanut butter, booze. Taste is sweet and very hot. Flavors of bourbon, marshmallow, coconut, peanuts, booze. Diabetes in a glass, this one delivers. Wowza.

Jet black appearance. The wax from the bottle smells amazing..tempted to chew it like the wax candy from the 70s. Big bold imperial stout flavor with a nice bourbon coating on my tongue, with the hazelnuts on the back end. A bit hot (hey dummy, its 18.5%), but hidden well for the percentage.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thick black pour with thin to no brown head, aroma is nutella-like, with big sweet hazelnut, chestnut, cocoa powder, lots of vanilla, bourbon, hints of oak, slight coffee and dark fruit as well. Taste is a mix of sweet vanilla, caramel, molasses, dark fruit, nutty notes into bourbon, slight booze but really not bad for the ABV, finishing very sweet. It’s a bit much, but I dig it.
