Named after Pedanius Dioscorides (40 AD - 90 AD), a noted Ancient Greek physician and botanist, this Imperial Stout was brewed with black caraway seeds and aged it in rye whiskey barrels. Upon pouring, you will be greeted with aromas of dark chocolate, plums and molasses; all complemented by the herbaceous spiciness of caraway seeds. Flavors of licorice, treacle and light smokiness will greet your tongue and are rounded out by vanilla and woody notes from the rye whiskey barrels. The barrels also contributes an additional alcohol spiciness and lively texture on the palate.

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 9 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 9

    750mL bottle pours with a deep dark body that supports a creamy looking mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, some whiskey booze and malt balls. The taste delivers smooth rich near velvety dark chocolate and then some dark roasted malts covered with sweet molasses. To midway a modest level of whiskey and booze are noticed as well as faint spices and what seems like a faint murmur of chili pepper like heat. Really faint. Great sipper with amazing thick creamy mouthfeel for a BA beer.
