From the brewer

Like India Pale Ale, the classic Imperial Stouts were originally brewed with high levels of alcohol and hops to withstand the rigors of a long sea journey, not to India but to Imperial Russia and the Baltic States. Our version is an over-the-top riff on the style, with a huge grain bill featuring several kinds of malted barley, wheat, rye, oats, and spelt. Robust grain and coffee flavors are counterbalanced by date and plum notes from the Scottish yeast. To add extra complexity and depth, this Imperial Stout is made up of a blend of freshly brewed beer and several barrel-aged beers, carefully balanced. Za Vas!

Thin stout, roasty, lots of whiskey character. Very enjoyable.

Smooth bourbon on the nose, hitting all the right notes. Flavor actually veers a tiny bit toward the fruity side, making me wonder if there were any wine barrels involved. Smooth, with only a hint of maybe too much caramel sticking out.
