This, for me personally, is the most amazingly put together barrel aged stout. I love how thick and heavy it is.

Move over KBS cuz GIBCS is the real deal. This 08 vintage bottle relinquished a snifter of indian ink as black as Joan Jett’s chopped locks. The sweet smell of bourbon and roasted malt rose up into the air to greet me. This beer is thick and almost syrupy with taste of vanilla, sweet malt, bourbon, and coffee..

Very tasty but not my ideal type of Stout. Indeed it was too syrupy as others have noted.
