3.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Version 10.6%. I guess it is a 2016 batch because alcohol is pretty high. The aroma is dominated ba a harsh barrel, not so pleasant. The taste is sweet chocolate pralines with a hint of alcohol and a bit roast, nice. Medium to full body. Satisfying and definitely worth trying.

Very think borwn head, the smell is coca, vanilla, the look is black, the taste is lactose, sweet malty, but very, very smoky. The wood finish is incredible, it’s like drinking BBQ! Great beer.

Big stout, a rich milk stout with heavy bourbon. Grew on me. Lactic in finish, but does not need that. Black bodied. Thanks Blian.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep dark in the glass with khaki head. Aroma of whiskey, wood, dark chocolate, demerara sugar, licorice, dark cherries. Flavour is dark chocolate, vanilla, whiskey forward, sweet booze, brown sugar and licorice. Almost full body (I drank the 10.6% ABV version), creamy mouthfeel. I’d liked more complexity on this one. The 13.1% ABV version would be better, I guess.

Pours a black from a bottle, no head. Big tobacco, chocolate and coffee aroma, similar flavor. Started off unbelievably bitter, but now appreciate the balance and lack of sweetness. Very good beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared by Jesse. Thanks again man! This one pours a very dark brown/black color with a tan head. The aroma has massive notes of tobacco leaf, fudge, coffee, oak and spice. Really complex and mature. The flavor is the same. Tons of fresh tobacco leaf, cigar, oak, dark chocolate and coffee. Rich on the palate. A drink that would pair well with Ron Burgundy, leather bound books and rich mahogany.
