COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This thick, rich ale was brewed with plenty of caramel and roasted malts, and subtly spiced with American Chinook and Willamette hops. It boasts flavors of chocolate and coffee, along with raisins and dried fruit soaked in sherry. We’ve accentuated the natural smokiness of the brew by adding a small amount of beechwood-smoked malt and aging the brew in an oak whiskey barrel, which also adds notes of oak and vanilla.

Bottle. This beer is fan-freaking-tastic. SO awesome in fact that I do not think I can find words to do this beer justice. It is a bit costly but once you have your first sip of this delectable temptress you will know why. The flavours involved are robust yet mellow and sharp on the tounge but possess a smooth clean finish. If you see this I highly, highly recommend giving it a shot. It would also make a great gift.

One of my new favorite beers! Big, roasty, rich, but not overly sweet. The aroma is the same. Something I’m going to get plenty of to lay down in the cellar!

Pours black w/ a tall, thick head that lasts. Strong roast on the nose w/ some meat. Full, oily and chewy on the palate w/ creamy carbonation. A highly roasted specimen w/ a nice hop on it and a mild sweetness factor. Coffee beans and bitter cocoa, dried cherry skins. The finish lingers and bitters up quickly. Good balance.

Pours deep black with perfect frothy head. Nose is fruity, mainly cherries, and blackberries. Some aroma of chocolate, or chocolate raspberry. Very thick body, and the aroma identifies the taste profile. Sweet and bitter fruity chocolate! It is like drinking a liquid desert! Could only drink one of these, but man is it good!

12 oz bottle. Aroma of roasted coffee. Pours an impervious cauldron black with a medium tan head which dissipates in two or three minutes, leaving a nice collar of foam. Great lacing. Flavor is absolute top of the line imperial stout. Starts a little sour (!!) and finishes bitter. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. This is one of the best stouts I’ve ever had.
