Truly a world-class stout. And the ABV is off the chain.

This has become the bar by which I measure all bourbon stouts. There is a strong and distinct bourbon smell and flavour to this beer, though it is mellowed and sweetened on the tongue. Very hard to find (especially the further from Black Friday you get) but worth picking up and stashing a few away. Ages very well.

The 13.8% ABV is apparent. Would recommend to the bourbon whiskey enthusiast. Very harsh if you take a big gulp, but overall very smooth. Not too bitter, with a very strong bourbon flavor, a little dry. Get 1 bottle before trying the whole pack, it can be hit or miss by person. Don't let the strength sneak up on you, drink it slow.
