Nationwide release 13% Imperial Stout collaborated by 3 geeks with awesome “gotta catch ’em all” bottle designs. Sounds like a winner! Enjoyed at 60F in a wine glass.A – Pours like molasses. Very thick and oily, pitch black and almost no head. Reminds me of a thick Stone RIS.

S – Toffee, Chocolate, Fudge and Espresso on the nose.

T – I swear I taste oak but I don’t think this was oak aged. 13% RIS really should have gone in a barrel! The is the kind of beer 21 year old college kids who are stone fanboys must lose their shit over. I don’t taste any of the booze. Sweetness is minimal for such a big beer. Lots of roast / toasty qualities and creamy coffee.

M – Thick and viscous, charred oak finish

O – This was pretty good but should be split 2 ways. The roast and lack of sweetness really wears on you.
