A very nice stout from Alaskan that is very rich in flavor. A little too high ABV to be better.

Aromatics are a real strong point of this beer! I was very surprised at the barrel characteristics that this exudes with out having been barrel aged. Lots of alcohol notes that have a bourbon characteristic. Lots of Vanilla and caramel. Appearance is nice and thick, dark oil like, with a tan head that hangs out! Taste is outstanding as well! Starts with a lot of plums and other stone fruit has a nice caramel vibe. Palate is excellent. Overall this is a huge beer for me. Love it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a viscous dark brown with a nice looking dark root beer head. The head dissipates slowly to a thin cap leaving laces of dark root beer foam around the glass. Literally no light passes through this beer. Sweet aromas of chocolate syrup, vanilla, and honey. Quite thick, but not necessarily creamy. Vanilla and chocolate up front with some honey notes. Dark roasted coffee on the back of the tongue. Appearance and aroma are a little misleading on taste, but not by a significant amount. Pretty good beer, overall. I would’ve liked to have paid a lot less than $10 for the bottle though. $5.99 at most.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle, about a year and a half old. Pours inky black with a thick, creamy tan head. Aroma chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, molasses, coffee and light liquorice. Flavor is rich dark chocolate, roasty/smoky malt, coffee, vanilla/alcohol warming and a light bitterness. Full body with a soft, smooth mouth feel. This is a great beer, every time I’ve had this is seems to get better and better, too bad this is my last bottle. A good one for #2000.
