Intro: A 22 fl. oz. waxed bomber, 2016 vintage. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark dark brown to black in colour with a one and a half finger tanned head that had decent retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Roasty, chocolate, toffee, coffee, bourbon, vanilla with a hint of licorice.
Taste: Moderately sweet, bourbon, fruit cake, raisin, fig, light roast, chocolate, molasses, honey, licorice.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Not enough roastiness as it was overpowered by the sweetness and bourbon. Body was also lighter than I prefer my Imperial Stouts to be.
