look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

poured from a 12oz. bottle into a mason jar glass.

A - pours a thick, syrupy oil slick in the glass with a half finger head that dissipates into a bare foam collar and only little spots of foam sticking to the sides. This is a heavy brew right from the start.

S - sweet maple, oak, bourbon, coffee, vanilla, and roasted malt all converge into a crazy amalgam of aroma.

T - Surprisingly not as boozy as I had expected. the sweet, roasty malt and bourbon flavors drown out much of the alcohol burn, paving the way for the sweet, heady, roasty flavors to shine through. This is a monster of a stout.

M - Heavy, heavy, HEAVY. The first sips were almost milkshake-like in their thickness on the palate, and every taste thereafter is a wave of dense, almost syrupy stout goodness, with just enough carbonation to keep it from collapsing in on itself.

Overall - I was honestly skeptical about this one, but I've been proven oh so wrong, and I don't mind at all. If you like big, bold stouts and bourbon-infused beers, you will definitely love this one.
