Something unreleased, unnamed batch of beer

An opportunity came up recently, one that allowed me to get my hands on a sample of beer that won't be released for production until next year. To make it more mysterious, I won't reveal the brewery, or its potential name, just to keep your imagination running wild.

Brewery: ████████████
Beer: ████████████
Style: Imperial Stout
ABV: 9.4%
IBU: 60-70?
Price: Not set yet

This beer pours a pitch black with a thin, dark tan head consisting of the tiniest bubbles conceivable. The aroma is mostly whiskey, with chocolate, roastiness, and caramel in the background. Flavor is balanced between whiskey and chocolate. The aftertaste is mostly chocolate. Mouthfeel is heavy, the beer leaves a thin black film on the glass. As this beer warms, the alcohol becomes noticeable. If you love a good aged stout that is not sweet, nor bitter, with a bold flavor, ████████████ from ████████████ brewery is a beer to look out for in the future.

Aroma: 9/10
Appearance: 5/5
Taste: 9/10
Palate: 5/5
Overall Score: 18/20

Final Score: 46/50
