Churchill’s Finest Hour 2012

Churchill's Finest 201211% ABV. Woe is me! It is always difficult for me to get my hands on some Churchill’s Finest – I had to give up some Czar Jack for this. Russian Imperial Stout from Port Brewing in San Diego, California. I traded big for this one – a limited bomber of Czar Jack. A great trade this was indeed! This is my second Churchill that I had the privilege of trying out. I absolutely enjoyed drinking the 2011 vintage last year, so I was excited to try the 2012. Pours a pitch black color with a very nice tan head. Aroma is of bourbon, oak, vanilla, bourbon soaked raisins, dark fruits, dark chocolate, tobacco, roasted malt and some coffee. Flavor is quite complex and follows the nose, lots of bourbon, oak, vanilla, again the raisins, coffee, roasted malt, licorice, tobacco, dark fruits and dark chocolate. Full mouthfeel with mild creaminess to it (though I wish it was a bit more creamy). Overall, a great blended Imperial Stout from Port Brewing. I want me some more of it!
