Bottle from someone. I can’t remember. Anyway, 375 split two ways at fridge temp. Stupid thick oily pour. 2 finger espresso head. This aroma is ridiculous. Bells has taken an award winning imperial stout and done something remarkable. Smells like cold press coffee and fudge. Damn. This is a booze bomb but the bourbon absolutely comes through perfectly. It’s chalky and very smokey but there’s just layers of fudge and vanilla throughout the entire beer. Finish is dense and charcoal with cigar smoke. It’s intense but incredible. Thanks bells for keeping things real.
