Tried after cellaring for 4 years. Marvelous.

This stout is perfect for anyone, both filling the roles of the novice drinker trying to advance their palate and that of the beer snob looking for a complexity of tastes. The vanilla bean and french oak chips hit you immediately upon sipping mixed delicitaely with the smooth chocolate taste. This quickly gives way to the Belgian dark candy sugar mixed with the tangerine peel as it warms in your mouth. Has a molasses finish without an overly thick mouthfeel. Very complex, very delicious imperial porter.
