Oh, so many good things. This beer is like real Modena balsamic compared to $1.99 balsamic. Deep, dark fruit flavors in the best, most aged, fermenty way. Lots of barrel-derived aroma and flavor. The coffee and chocolate you'd expect from an imperial stout, the boozy-ness helps to bring them out. Just so well balanced, a beer that makes me want to keep brewing.

Too much lactose! Flavors do not compliment each other. Couldn't even finish this one

Extremely complex brew, smells like raisinet's, cola, caramel, vanilla, rum, bourbon, thinner mouthfeel but with a smooth finish, slight alc heat but reminds you it's a sipper.

Very nice! Thick and rich, with minimal head. Heavy malt flavor with coffee overtones. Pleasant aftertaste. Definitely worth having again.

Low carb, smooth. Light body. Complex flavor, with oak, coffee, some chocolate, and even wine. Alcohol is too prominent though, and ends in dryness. Not sure i like the combined flavors. 3.5

Licorice taste, full mouthfeel, no hop nose

Chocolate is heavy. Full flavor throughout the brew. Lightens up to a almost vanilla flavor after a few moments. Not boozy for an 11% brew. Will definitely try again.

Mocha, chocolate. Little taste of alcohol on the finish. For $15.99 thought it was gonna be better.
