Milk chocolate / chocolate milk in the aroma with some dark chocolate, brownies, cake... Goes down too easy. Palate is insane, makes the beer. Awesome stout. If you have the chance and like a sweet milk stout, pick it the fuck up

Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs). Looks good; a fairly opaque dull dark cola with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, vanilla, chocolate, oak, and a bit of bourbon. Tastes like it smells with a smooth medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Good stuff!

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 Pours an inky black with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is full of bourbon. Taste is smooth with whiskey on the front end and a nice mix of roasted malt and dark chocolate on the back end. Really good bourbon barrel beer.
