Aroma: Vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, with notes of caramel.
Taste: Chocolate, bourbon, oak, vanilla, with light notes of licorice and raisin.
Mouthfeel: Surprisingly only medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Enjoyable Imperial Stout with good flavours, although body was much lighter than expected.
