3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, beige head. Decent retention. The aroma is a mélange of blackstrap molasses, black licorice and pouch tobacco. Full-bodied, viscous and velvety with stinging carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet with lots of molasses, anise and licorice. There may be a little too much black malt used to brew this bad boy. Maybe a little less sugar from black malt and a little more sugar from other sources would help to keep the overbearing molasses and licorice notes in check. Very reminiscent of Bells Batch 9000 and Avery Mephistopheles. Quality brew, but a bit much. Thanks to growler for sharing this bottle!

Yeah ok this beer just rocks ass. Damn this is the shit. Black. Black. Black. Tan head. Tons of chocolate, roast, coffee, prunes, raisins, toffee and some light hops. Flavor is just rich and amazing. First its sweet, then its fruity, the hops swoop in to blance it so perfectly. Just a remarkable brew. Now I know why bourbon county stout is so good!!
