Taste malts, bourbon, lightly red wine, vanilla, bitter, more subtle bourbon notes. Decent body, suitable soft carbonation. Nice!

bottle shared at our big bottle share tasting. batch 1 bottle. poured a dark black colour with a tanned head on top. nose has a strong sweet bourbon notice, lot’s of coconut, strong on the roasted malts, sweet bakers chocolate, marshmallows, sticky caramel. incredible aroma. taste is strong on the chocolate. sweet dark campfire bourbon. however, the aroma was mindblowing. but the mouthfeel is a bit of a game changer, it’s pretty weak bodied. this would be world class if the mouthfeel was thicker.

Pitch black and oily, aroma of fudge and chocolate. Tons of chocolate and whiskey. great balance on this one. you can’t really taste the booze which is very impressive.

2013 bottle. Pours dark with a brown mocha colored ring of foam that hugs my glass. The aroma is rich of sweet bourbon, roasted notes, vanilla, and chocolate. There are hints of coconut and figs. The flavor mimics the aroma but with a more defined coconut and dark fruit taste. The description mentions marshmallow flavors and honestly they were spot on by stating that. The finish has a nice bourbon flavor with a pleasant roasty bitterness. Also this beverage is very kind to my palate for being such a big style brew. Overall this is definitely a stout to try. Glad I obtained this.
