First, I'd like to say I am not a stout fan at all. It's too strong for my taste buds for me to appreciate. However, a friend of mine brought this to a party and It was fantastic. Has a slight whiskey burn on the way down and bold flavor like a stout. It quickly went to the top of my list as a favorite. On the hunt for more (charlotte, nc area).

Man shit. Girl-man shit.

A: As black as it was before the big bang.

T: Booze and vanilla and acidic bitterness from all the blackness and space oddity booze.

M: Perfectly thick, semi-hard to swallow because my mouth likes it so much.

O: Holy Grail ALERT
