4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft from the source. Pours nearly pitch black with medium head and soapy lacing. Aromas of bourbon, bakers chocolate, and vanilla beans. Flavors are the same with the most luxurious dark chocolate truffle amidst some pecan and a dash of spice from the bourbon. The epitome of a desert beer. Astonishing.

2013 bottle..pours a dark black with a tan head that eventually dissipates...nose is pretty solid with tons of chocolate..bourbon notes..vanilla slight coconut..mouthfeel is velvety smooth..medium bodied indeed that produces slick buttered rum soaked bourbon taste profile..solid finish all around, tasty not overly boozy bourbon stout..this is a smooth offering.
