Mahogany pour with an average sized beige head. Roasted malt, bourbon, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, chicory. Again a lot more carbonation than there should be in a stout, although it’s a decent drop.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - Pours near black with a minimal tan head. It has an aroma of roast chocolate malt and bourbon. The flavor is sweet with chocolate and mild bourbon. It’s surprisingly light bodied, even watery, with low carbonation and roast character that lingers in the finish. Decent but I had hoped for more...
