Awesome stuff. Thick without feeling like it's coating. Never too sweet, this is a tasty beer that is basically a top notch imperial stout. At least, I get the stout flavors more than the barleywine. Really well done. llkc (2763) - århus, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2017

On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours black o that a reddish tinge and a small beige head. Aroma is intense, with loads of rye barrels and bourbon, followed by caramel malts and a touch of roast. Flavour is along the same lines, with caramel, bourbon, and rye. Thick and dense. A wonderful blend. Excellent.
