Awesome! This Schlafly reserve is 10 years old and it’s still stellar. It’s even better as it warms up!

330cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a 1/2 finger cola head. Aroma is vanilla, oak, chocolate. Taste is vanilla and barrel up front with a hint of chocolate on the back side. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall, a very good BA stout. A little better than New Holland’s dragon’s milk, but not near Bourbon County.
