3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A tasty bonus sent to me by PeteinSD. Deep black pour with a mocha brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, bourbon and vanilla. Taste is creamy smooth, roasted malt, a touch of bourbon and vanilla and oaky dryness. Simply, its just a damn tasty beer from start to finish. Alcohol well hidden by the plethora of flavors.

Big barrel and of roast. Some coffee. Lots of dark chocolate. Very well done and a good stout overall but slightly too heavy on barrel for my liking. Bottle at tasting.
