4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thick black with little to no head, I poured very slowly as the oil thick fluid was fun to watch.. Aroma has notes of strong caramel, dark fruits (some raisins, dates, prunes), and big molasses notes, slight hint of bourbon but its fairly restrained, slight oak and alcohol. First sip very smooth, with tang of alcohol at the end. Very nice bourbon overtones with caramel, molasses and chocolate. Definitely not a session beer, will need to put some up for a year or two to see how the flavors come together. This almost as good as Goose Island Bourbon Stout in my opinion.

Bourbon and chocolate aroma. Tan head with a lasting ring, no lacing. Soft creamy palate. Huge bourbon aftertaste. Overall very strong. All in all ok. Might be awesome after some aging.

This was really good. I was expecting something way more boozy at 17%. Get it if you can.
