Bottled 12/12 in a 22oz Bomber


color: Pitch black dark chocolate

Aroma: Oak, Melted chocolate, Smore's,

Taste: It's a graham cracker bourbon sandwich. The years of age added roasted and caramelized marshmallow flavors. the combination creates a a rich background for the sweet and oaky Pappy barrels. The barrels may be a bit too flabby to stand up to the base beer though. The barrels add a ton of mouth feel and oakyness but they are too delicate and add too much boozy heat to the beer.

Mouth feel: Oaky, tannic, and slightly syrupy. Really really full for the modest 9.6% ABV.

Overall: This stout is a sweet and boozy monster worth finding. Every sip is so full of rich flavor and they all meld together really well. The Pappy barrel is a bit of a mild barrel but overall it adds a pleasant whiskey flavor.
