COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our Imperial Stout that we age in conditioning tanks with oak staves. This adds a classic character of old world aging without the Bourbon tones. This black ale is about 12% ABV and very rich in roasted and chocolate malt tones. Velvety smooth and able to be aged for years. For now this will be a seasonal beer offering.

This stout is AWESOME. Like drinking a chocolate espresso with no bitter. Hardly any burn at all. I would definitely grab one of these again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma - rich roast, chocolate, and some alcohol Appearance - black body. Minimal head, just a sliver of beige head. Rings out quickly. Taste - full roast, licorice, some chocolate, burnt sugar, and alcohol Palate - body is full, the texture is slick, the carbonation is average, the finish is astringent with a rich roast and alcohol.

12 oz bottle from a trade with mdg64. Pours dark brown / black color with light brown head. Aromas of dark roasted malt, chocolate, and ash. Moderately bitter roasted malt flavor with some chocolate. Slightly ashy finish. Full body with moderate carbonation. Good stuff. Thanks Marc.

Cellared for about a year. Very smooth. Sweet, but not overly so, especially at 12%. Raisin and dark fruit, coffee, brown sugar, roast. Bourbon booziness within reason. Coats the palate and trails off nicely. One of the better high gravity beers Ive tried.
