UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Draft @ acbf. Aroma is huge roast, smoky malt and whiskey, coffee, liquorice and more. Subtle coat of fruity and full Glen Elgin. In the flavour the whiskey takes a more dominant position. The roast is pushed to the back while the malts come more upfront. Fruity notes, smokey notes. Nice one.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Wow. If I took a blind taste test I would called this Bourbon County Stout bases on my previous knowledge. Pours thick and black with a small brown head. Nose is rich vanilla and chocolate, heavy alcohol notes, a little coffee and some nutty notes. Taste is sweet and rich, small amount of bitter for the balance. Mouthfeel is creamy and silky. Long aftertaste.
