CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Corked and Caged 2015 Vintage Bottle (1 Pint, .9 Fluid Ounces) of Drakonic Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels. 11.4% ABV. Black tar pour with a sudsy layer of mocha foam. Big notes of charred malt, molasses, bittersweet chocolate, bourbon barrel and coffee in the aroma. Flavor starts with a heavy dose of roasted malt, dark chocolate fudge and espresso along with some vanilla and bourbon toward the end. Mouthfeel is moderately dense and creamy with low carbonation and more chocolate and char in the finish. Definitely one of the more decadent BB Imperial Stouts. Good stuff.
