If anyone can tell me how to pronounce “Ø” that would be appreciated.  The Highland Edition of the Imperial Stout is aged for three months in Scotch Whiskey barrels.  I bought this beer for $10 about the same as the Dogfish Head World Wide Stout.  This beer was about twice the volume and half the ABV.  I felt like I got so much more out of this beer.  Excellent job folks!

Tasting Notes:

Imperial Stout pours like motor oil with a thin tan head, and has a slight booze aroma, but primarily chocolate and coffee aromas.  The taste does follow the nose.  Initial flavor of whiskey with malt and a bitterness at the end.  This is a light bodied beer and almost seemed to flow across my tongue like water.

Pairing Notes:

On the second glass I had a piece of plain cheesecake.  It really mellowed the flavor out.  Good pairing, but if you never had the beer before make sure you try it without the food first.
