This is one of those beers Iíve been wanting to try for a while, but hadnít had an opportunity. Shared with my buddy Dave.
The beer is near black with a quarter inch of silky beige collar. The aroma brings dark chocolates, roast, huge malt profile, bourbon, oak. Some vanilla and barrel notes, but more chocolate and bourbon. A delicious beer! So smooth. I honestly hadnít looked at the abv. I thought it was around 12-13%. 17.42% abv?!? Are you serious. Apparently, itís serious, because I felt pretty awesome after I finished my 6 oz. Outstanding beer and well deserving of the high ratings.

Holy. Cow. Vanilla, bourbon goodness in every smell and sip. Syrupy and sticky texture. Very sweet, with the vanilla, coconut, and a little bite from the alcohol but not much, it's very well hidden. An amazing stout.

Batch 2, 2013 12oz bottle. Aroma is dark and dry. Some sweetness as well. Appearance is like oil with no head and very viscous. Taste is very sweet and dark fruit. Hints of bourbon and oatmeal. Palate is very dry. Overall, a good stout. Hides the booze well. A decent treat.

Nice bourbon and vanilla aroma pours a deep black with a creamy molasses colored head. Nice body for such big beer carried by roast, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon oak flavors then comes in with a big continually warming sensation. Creamy big dark fruit caramel cocoa finish. Just keeps gettin better with every drink!

2012 vintage. Black with a tan head. The aroma is extremely boozy with some strong chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is also very boozy. I get some big oak, maple and vanilla notes up front, with some chocolate and roasted malt coming through second. The barrel-aged notes are very obvious and really add a lot to the beer. Quite boozy. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
