22 ounces bottle shared with brother. Aroma: intense boozy bourbon, chocolate, delicate oatmeal maybe. Alcohol as well. App: dark brown with burgundy tint, minimal beige / brown head, little lacing. Taste and palate: full body, smooth, creamy, medium sweetness, bourbon, chocolate, light acidity finish. Overall: great stuff. Lots of chocolate in mouth. Great beer. Boozy but in a good way. Another great beer from Fremont. ciocanelu (3011) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 10, 2017
Pitch black color with mocha head. Aroma has dark malts, brown sugar, some dried fruits and a hint of boozy whiskey. Taste is whiskey forward, quite roasty, some umami, overall on the bitter side. Medium body, really smooth mouthfeel. Overall it’s a well made imperial stout with well hidden ABV but quite classic, doesn’t really stand out between other barrel aged stouts.
