Starting with appearance... this is the epitome of what a stout should look like. Pours absolute, sheer black, thick and like crude oil with a thin brown head. Zero light comes through even with a 600 Lumen flashlight on the other side of the glass. BLACK. At the very edges, it has a golden hue as opposed to the more common black with a reddish hue. Good lookin beer. Smell is well... bourbon... And lots of it. Bourbon, mild coffee, chocolate and coconut. Like a Mounds Bar... soaked in bourbon. The taste is simply incredible: robust but smooth bourbon comes first with the oak and vanilla you would expect. Bright notes of roasted coffee, molasses, vanilla and chocolate linger well after you finish your sip. The booze is very apparent, but not undesirable. This is a warmer; you feel it in your gut! Feel is heavy, thick but silky smooth. Almost zero carbonation. Coats your mouth and everything else on the way down leaving a boozey warmth wherever it touches. Fantastic beer overall; tons of good flavors, a perfect dessert or sipping beer, and it's affordable to boot. A must try.
