Simply awesome. Boosey, yet balanced. It got better as it warmed up. A great beer. Kind of reminded me of a low alcohol Black Tuesday.

4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Black with tan head. Aromas of raisins, dark fruit, bourbon, oak. Tastes of bourbon, dark chocolate, oak, caramel, coffee, light roast. Full body with a dry finish. Well masked alcohol with no heat, fantastic.

For me I have to count his as my number one beer that I have enjoyed to date. Found it on tap at Tribes in Tinley park illinois. Color aroma flavor was exactly as expected from this stout but the perfect level of oaky barrel flavor was spot on for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Apex, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lactose notes, chocolate, oak and roast. Flavour packs some serious heat, with loads of alcoholic boozy heat, wood, roasted malt, lactose and cocoa. Quite boozy, packing quite the burn, though well-structured. Drinkable in very small amounts. Good stuff.
