COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barrel aged Silhouette is as deep and dark as the thick Northern Woods. It’s brewed in the style of an Imperial Stout. Aromas of coffee, molasses, chocolate and prune meld with an intense dark roasted character. This beer is complex, rich and full bodied. Its wild spirit will warm the senses, illuminate the soul, and grow into a traditional favorite...no matter what season.

Very nice imperial stout. Flavors of molasses, chocolate, vanilla, roast, and smoke. Nothing extraordinary but solid for the style. Very good.

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of hearty oats, moderate roast and a touch of coffee. Flavour is very hearty, with lots of roast and oats. A touch of coffee as well. Full-bodied and hearty. Excellent.

Bomber shared by Andrew. Poured into a glass coffee cup b/c I am moving tomorrow. I don’t get a head but its a very brown colored beer but not black. Aroma is a little sweet brownie, light brown syrup malts. Flavor has a bit of overused malts character, just tired light autolysis. Well attenuated, no hops popping in, a malty, lightly chocolate, low roast imperial stout.

22 oz bottle poured. Bottle #1061, 2016. Picked up from France44. Pours black with a cream foam tan head. Aroma is a doughy, roasted malt. Flavor is smooth, short sweet, and a dark chocolate. Solid imperial stout.

phaleslu (10673) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2016
22 oz. bottle via trade. This one exploded. 2015 vintage barely tapped while setting down while organizing my cellar. Glass went in all directions. I poured what was left. It’s a cloudy brown with a big tan head that settles into a bubbly ring. Mellow chocolate, nuts, brown sugar, leaves and florals, dried fruits like dates and figs, earth, ash, and metal. Medium-bodied, with medium soft carbonation and a smooth, sweet, faintly fruity and bitter mouthfeel. It’s a bit weird. Perhaps some still overactive yeast. Frustrating.

Pours dark with a beige head. Chocolate on the nose, a little toasty too. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Somewhat bittersweet on the swallow with a pleasant lingering. Overall a good representative of the style. Might cellar this and see how it tastes down the road.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. Thanks Peter. Nose is very chocolate with a list of boost initially. Taste is like a marshmallow with soft caramel on the tongue. Great.

Medium Coffee/chocolate malt aroma with slight alcohol warmth. Medium low to medium coffee flavor with low alcohol warmth. Very deliciously balanced. Initial sweetness with a slight alcohol finish. This is a terrific beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
