Much less sweet than I imagined it would be. Nicely balanced beer with a good chocolate character. Not incredible but very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black blacker blackest pour with very quickly dissipating tan foam. Aroma of soy sauce, barrel, some spirit, booze, choc; smells sweet. Taste is wow...lots of oak and vanilla! Almost too much vanilla! Quite sweet with some bourbon. Motor oil quality on palate with a lovely inky quality - not thin but also not full bodied. Overall, not a classic by any means but great fun to drink - just a nice sweet stout.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ve been sitting on this bottle since beechner224 sent it to me, glad I waited. Pours dark, thin khaki head that fades fast. Nose has a strong bourbon barrel presence, chocolate, vanilla. Taste begins sweet, bitter baking chocolate, sweet cherries, and a nice bourbon oak and vanilla. Slight smokey ness muddled in the mix but very much in the hinter ground. Body is slick and creamy, a little thin feeling but makes it very drinkable.
