3.53/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very dark brown ruby color. I took advantage of the tall glass I had for head retention, and there is a lot of head. Very light tan head.

I smell alcohol, a small amount of charred wood, and possibly caramel or vanilla.

Taste is smooth, slightly buttery, and reminiscent of spice cake with wood.

the feel is pretty smooth, but does include some whiskey character; there is that little kick at the end. The tingle is almost gone, which is kind of nice.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours very dark with a decent head. Smells pretty good. Smell a little hint of whiskey. Not overpowering. Tastes pretty good. Less stout than what I thought it would from the appearance. Just like the smell a little whiskey aftertaste. I like this beer. I would drink it again.

3.74/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Purchased from one of the local cigar lounges.

A: Almost pitch black with decent head and retention.

S: Malt forward with a hit of the whiskey.

T: Malt and coffee with some sweetness.

M: Crisp. More carbonation than I would expect from a beer of this style. Maybe a tad thin.

O: Solid beer. Not my favorite of the style but still good.
