From notes 12/17:
A: Ink black color with a small head. There is little to no retention and zero lacing.
S: Things start to get better real fast. Bourbon woodiness, with heaps of chocolate and dark toffee bread. It is quite the booze bomb, but the roasty quality of the brew really kicks in to pull it out in the end. Smells great.
T: Crushing wave of bourbon, wood, dark roast, chocolate, hint of vanilla (phantom). It is as boozy as the nose suggests, but it manages to push through the considerable heft with a malty goodness.
M: Slick and full bodied. This is a sipper for sure.
D: One is enough. Great beer that is extremely satisfying.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours thick like molasses and solid black in color. Head is thin tan and retains nicely.
Smell is incredible, some dark red fruity notes are forward before a nice bourbon and oak aroma cut through the fruity esters. Rich toffee malt with subtle aromas of toasted marshmallow and more fruity esters finish.
Taste follows the nose and is just as good. Dark fruity lightly sweet flavors are forward along with a light bourbon presence and a dry oak flavor. Rich toffee malt finishs along with some light toasted marshmallow flavors in the finish.
Mouthfeel is great. Thick body and mild carbonation keep this a perfect sipping beer. Hits all points, sweet sticky dry lightly bitter, anything you could ask for from a great stout
