A solid version of Old Raspy.

Pours black with great head and lacing, a bit of a waterfall effect with the tan head.

Aroma pops from the bottle with booze and bourbon. Vanilla, sweet, some cocoa. Sniffing the glass reveals a toned down bourbon and booze. More leather and vanilla. Flashes of roasted malt and coffee.

Flavor is more stout and less BA. The vanilla and booze are not dominant, and I like that. For 11.90% this has some booze, but it's really quite drinkable. Leather, black plum, earth tones, red wine tannin all come through in the flavor. I pour this at cellar temperature so not much changed.

While my ratings may seem low, it's not b/c the beer lacks anything, except maybe some body. The flavors are nice, the feel is comfortable and the booze is hidden for the most part.

A darn fine beer. Glad I have another
