((Bottle) Pours black with a small brown head. The aroma holds deep Pappy tones of spicy wood, glue and vanilla alongside coffee and dark bready roast. The flavour is medium sweet and near medium bitter with boat loads of chocolate and smooth barrel profile. The mouthfeel is velvety and silky with a soft carbonation. Balanced aftertaste. Extremely low on acidic notes. Near full bodied.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is awesome. I get some huge chocolate, whiskey and maple notes as well as some roasted malt and vanilla. The flavor is the same. The whiskey and maple notes really stand out, but they are complemented by some oak, vanilla and chocolate. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Awesome stout.
