Cask at the brewery bar. Pours thick black with a foamy tan head. Sharp toasted malts in the nose, some lacquer, iodine. Medium sweet flavor, sticky and oily, with bitter cocoa, dried dark fruits, unpleasant ash. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carboantion. Warming finish with more ash, baking cocoa, paint, varnish. Tough to drink. cheap (5797) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2015
OK, so this stuff has been around for awhile. Big and black impy looking stout. A choco moose head. Ooooh yes, impy stout with some local personality, pretty cool. Has that particular wine like contemporary background. Roasty friendly aroma. Smooth fer sure. Not bad for an impy stout, its almost civilized, heheh. arminjewell (9585) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark reddish brown pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, dark sugars, slight roast into a bit of coffee, touch of acidic malt. Tate was a mix of cocoa, watery earth, some grain into toffee, dark sugar, hints of roast, finishing slightly tart, sweet. Eh. alexsdad06 (10278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Sampled at a tasting from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses, earthy hops, dry, decent bitterness for a stout to the finish, hides abv pretty well, decent.

Southern VT needs good beer. This is a beer but its just a big dumb beer for the sake of being a big dumb beer. Tastes like tin, cola, raisins, and aspirin. FInishes hoppy bitter or something else bitter i cant really tell.

yea this one was an old one for sure. It was my friend Ben helping me clean a little. Metallic from the age, sharpish malts, a little boozy. Subpar stout. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Half pint at the brewery. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, light bitterness and dough. Flavor the same with sort of off flavors at the end. Average texture. Not the best beer. AdamChandler (4977) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2014
1 finger head. Pitch black. Nose is super chocolatey. Whoa. Insanely sweet, very sugary. I get chocolate cola and candy corn ClarkVV (6642) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2014

Listed as bourbon barrel Imperial Stout. Not actually sure if this is their old Imperial Stout recipe aged in bourbon (or with bourbon oak chips, whichever they’re doing), or if this is just a brand new recipe. Man was their Imperial Stout good...and this is certainly no slouch, though it’s sweeter this time around, partly due to the bourbony-oak butter and richness but also in part due to more chocolatey sweet flavors. Yes, it’s no extra dry, heavily roasted, cigars and prunes delight, but it’s still respectably well-attenuated and lacks any tacky hop resins. Actually quite low on hops in genral; just some light juicy citrus notes and a bit of acidity for balance. Chewy, supple palate. Good restraint on the barrel character.
Bottle. I need the label for this one. If anyone has one, please let me know. Pours dark brown/ black with brown head. Nose and taste of roast chocolate, coffee, light tobacco and earthy chocolate. Medium body.
