look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

got this in a beer club that i am in- i was a little annoyed, i have had this before and i liked it, however there are a ton of good seasonal beers out right now, (as the sc weather gets warmer) that go a little better with the spring. but i do yield to the fact that this is a great beer.

its opaque- the way a stout should be. black as a witch's soul. smells rich, with a smokey sweetness. the taste, also is rich with a strong bitter that isnt too over powering...its right on target. this beer actually went great with my lazy, rainy sunday afternoon.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a FW Barrelworks Teku

Appearance: pours a nice black with a light tan head that holds about 1/4" in my Teku.

Aroma: prominent smell of roasted malt, with some sweet chocolate when aerated in the teku

Taste: a little sweet on the front with the taste of roasted malt as expected. The finish is very nice, transitions to dark chocolate and some sweet bourbon/alcohol notes with some light nuttiness. I have not tried the anniversary beer but I am looking forward to it now.

Moutfeel: very nice, thick mouthfeel. This is one of the highpoints of this beer. Excellent fine carbonation. I prefer this beer on nitro but havent seen it in a while.

Overall: great beer that can be sipped alone or as a compliment to a meat and potatoes meal. Love this beer and am glad it's always around!
