    This is a pretty rich stout!

    I am not usually a big fan of the imperial stouts; but I think the fact that this has mellowed in some bourbon barrels may have something to do with my attraction to it!

    It does have a pretty high alcohol content – but honestly I didn’t realize that until I read it! This is a very easy to drink brew!!

    This beer is dark and rich with a burnt caramel head. It’s funny what Chuck said about the high alcohol content and not knowing until he read it, because when I took my first sip the first thing I thought was, “now that’s boozy”. It took me a few sips to warm up to the flavour but when I did it was a nice beer that I enjoyed sipping slowly and as it warmed it seem to get even more flavourful.
