Only your favorite beer should be eligible for the perfect score, and this one is the Chosen One. Dense as a forest, strong coffee and alcohol on the attack smoothing into the sweetening finish provided by the bourbon barrel aging. Power, finesse, aggressiveness, and class.
Everyone else provided all the detailed tasting notes so I won’t bother talking about the mid-palette lavender aroma balanced with the tarry undertones that transitioned quickly to a sweet toasted hoppy finish...or whatever. I will add that after spending the last 9 months or so only drinking craft-brew stouts, this is one of my all-time favorites. A spectacular, big, complex and bold stout-style ale.
A special experience. Pours literally like used motor oil. Mouth feel is like wet silk, flavor.....well there's so much going on here it's hard to put into words. A unique beer to say the least.
