Bottle courtesy of hackobock. Black pour with a thin mocha head. Balanced roast and bourbon barrel presence. White chocolate, vanilla and charred wood. Sweet & tiny bitter taste. Velvety round mouth. Huge barrel presence but since the stout is so balanced and in no way cloying it never gets vulgar.
