Amazing blend of flavors when it gets to you palette even with the aroma that is a sweet chocolate. The abs is not too well hidden but everything else makes up for it. Sipped this puppy and if a desert person this will pair very well. can see why this has great ratings

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Sean and wob cap hill. Aroma is aged oak and vanilla, with sweet pipe tabacco. Opaque black, almost no head. Bourbon barrel flavor is intense yet mellow. Oaky, vanilla, chocolate, spicy cinnamon, and alcohol. Finish is tingly sweet spiced and lingers deep vanilla and bourbon. Overall sneaky strong, super sip able, bourbon barrel roasted stout.

This is by far one of the best stouts I have ever tried. Bourbon up front, lots of toasted notes with carmel and dark fruits. What an amazing beer.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
AROMA: Chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, booze, tobacco, slight coffee, slight caramel, smells amazing!
APPEARANCE: Pitch black, leaves a small espresso like head on a heavy pour, exactly how a stout should look like!
TASTE: Follows the nose exactly, the booze is minimal in the taste, it’s just enough to get it some warmth and lively character
PALATE: Thick, oily, slightly syrupy, and creamy
OVERALL: Fantastic stout, one of the best and especially for the price!

Jet black pour with a tan head. Aromas of bourbon barrels, pipe tobacco, cocoa, and dark fruit. Flavor is big dark chocolate with notes of molasses and anise. Very complex. Finish is rich and robust with slight warming from the abv. Delicious brew.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a very dark black, no head. Aroma is really special. Vanilla, sweet bourbon, oak, a strong woodiness, chocolate, dark fruits, tobacco?, some caramel... Taste is bourbon up front, vanilla, sweet chocolate, raisin, coffee... Just wonderfully complex. It’s really sweet. Full body, dry finish, great stout. Looking forward to seeing how this ages.
