Bottle - 500ml. Pours an opaque, black body with a thin, lasting, beige creamy head. Complex, well balanced malty aroma with chocolate, coconut, and vanilla hints. Its robust malty taste carries woody, chocolate, roasty, and plummy notes. Ends with a long, strong, sweet/woody finish. Very interesting. crazy_cat_lady (814) - - JUL 21, 2017
Bottle from brewery bottle shop. Very dark with big brown head. Strong aroma of bitter coffee and chocolate chips, some leather and cherry notes. Chocolate and cherries upfront with leather and roasty coffee middle, lingering bitterness as expected with an imperial stout. mediocredad (1) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017 does not count
Bottle from bottle shop. From the label and name was expecting a glowing green beverage but sadly it poured a dark chocolate brown colour. The bourbon barrel aged brew had the lovely aroma of bourbon and a lightly bitter taste. Added to an au jus also made a fabulous addition to a gravy.

Amazingly rich and smooth, perfect mouthfeel for a big rich stout that enhances the rich subtle sweetness, deep malt and roast and lingering bitterness. Might be a bit too strong to drink every day but I could try.
