Wonderfully complex stout. Dynamic armoa and taste. Tough to focus one aspect as rich and complex on the palate

Wow! This has a huge head of whiskey and black malts. Pours with a huge head and is super dark. Pretty good lacing. There is a perfect menagerie of black malts, Whiskey barrel and %. Usually I wouldn’t like to smell and taste so much % but it works with the whiskey flavour in there, it warms up your esophagus. Only looses marks because the % is so noticeable.

Merci Tony pour cette bouteille! Un corps visqueux et sa coiffe de punk. Un nez fantastique de chocolat, de fruits, de vanille, de cognac, de mélasse, de réglisse et de malts rôtis contenus. Des saveurs délicieuses, à l’image de la complexité des arômes, riches comme un intelligent dessert et langoureuses comme les lèvres ivres de ma femme. Un corps velouté qui caresse chaque papille avec la même attention. Une finale douce avec cette volonté rôtie et barriquée de rendre le tout bien facile. Superbe!

Nearly black, tan head. Cocoa, whiskey, light espresso, roasted malt and molasses nose. Flavor is perfectly balanced between roasted malt, chocolate and whiskey notes. Damn good. Thanks savvy!

Thanks to Alex for this rare one, a 6 month aged stout in Crown Royal, gotta love that, big shout out to my homeboy DA the CR king....HUGE carbonation on this one, I can only pour about four onces with at least ten inches of head, really good retention, falls nice with a puffy eraser head top. Tons of lacing...Aroma is awesome, smells like crown, tons of sweet alcohol, wood, lots of vanilla...The taste is still pretty sweet, oak and vanilla, but not as strong, after such a great aroma, a slight let down...Feel is silky smoth, light warmness just smoothness. A huge surprise, especially after a couple so-so reviews. Worth seeking out

650ml brown bottle. Black pour, opaque. Small creamy light brown coloured head which fades into a ring. No lacing. Chocolate malt nose, some smoke, light hint of alcohol. Flavour has intense chocolate malt, black coffee, toffee, citrus hops, brown sugar. Finish is roasty and chocolatey, late alcohol fade out. Some oaky dryness. Bitterness is there in the background. Smooth mouthfeel, full body, soft carbonation. Lovely big, mixed style stout. Comes together very well, amazing how drinkable this is.
