4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 2013 vintage bottle.
Aroma has a really nice, strong chocolate aroma with medium light hazelnut notes. Moderate bourbon and light oak with light roast. Some alcohol spice.
Pours black with a small, moderately thick mocha head with alright retention as it recedes to the edges where it lingers for a bit before disappearing. No lacing with very long legs.
Flavor is fairly sweet with a ton of chocolate and lighter hazelnut character. Lots of bourbon and alcohol notes. Light dark fruit and roast notes. Hints of oak with quite a bit of alcohol in the finish. Lingering chocolate, bourbon, alcohol and light nuts.
Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and medium alcohol warmth.
Overall, a really nice big stout with a ton of chocolate and bourbon character. Hazelnuts add a nice secondary note and do not overwhelm at all.

Sample @ home, thanks tiong!
Aroma has strong alcohol tones, some roastiness and sweet cocoa tones. Flavour is sweet with alcohol, cocoa, dark chocolate. Nice slow sipper, better than chocolate rain. Too bad that I am allergic and do not dare to have more.
