Winterfest 2012. A sweet, smooth imperial stout. Alcohol in the aroma and also the flavor, which is fine for the style. A rich beer. Good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap at Winterfest 2012, aroma brought notes of dark fruits, roasted malt with coffee and chocolate, sweet bourbon and vanilla notes, fairly standard with a touch of grassy hop bite. Taste is pretty sweet with dark fruit and caramel, bourbon and vanilla making it fairly sweet with a hint of roasted malt, some coffee but not much, finishing fairly sweet with a touch of heat.
