3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sweet boozy aroma. Hot finish but not disagreeable. Rich chocolate powder flavor. A little bland at times. Nice oily mouthfeel. Not as roasty as regular stone IRS. Fun, but nothing stands out. Doesn’t merit the work it might take to get one.

"2006 - a little past it’s prime, so the hops didn’t really add to it at all, but damn, the roasted malts and chocolate, anise, etc in this beer aged in bourbon barrels? A thing of beauty. Would really like to try this a year or two old instead of 6.
2014 as Fyodor’s Classic 500 ml bottle...soft luxurious palate aroma and flavor, just like guradians slumber. AWESOME! "
