A concentrated black color in the glass, this imperial stout aged in Bourbon barrels is named after the great stock market crash of 1929. The nose is loaded with rich and roasty scents of Bourbon spice, molasses, black malt, chocolate sauce and a touch of cassis. Those aromas carry through to the medium-plus-bodied palate, with a pleasant roundness to the mouthfeel and a lingering spicy warmth on the close. It's a slickly slick, viscous, strong and flavorful selection, one that will leave a lasting impression, particularly in notes of campfire, chocolate cake and toasted baking spice.
