4.65/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Appearance - deep and dark with a quick-to-fade head.
Nose - vanilla, toasted coconut, with a boozy tinge. Toffee, huge cocoa. Smells amazing.
Taste - lots of vanilla and toasty coconut upfront, toffee, coffee, cocoa, dark cherries, dates, bourbon characteristics coming through mid-to back, alcohol sweetness. More cocoa on the backend, waves of sweet vanilla and dark fruit. Just fantastic.
Mouthfeel - heavy, but smooth. Definitely get some of the alcohol in the throat and belly, but I very much welcome that.
Overall - huge and a meal unto itself, this stout hits all the right [flavor] notes, and has easily become one of my favorite stouts of all time, only beaten by Evil Twin’s Imperial Biscotti Break. But a real treat. Just beautiful. 4.75/10

This brew is unique forsure. Black as night, like a matte black color, no head. Smells sweet, figs, malty, breadth, bourbon barrel sweetness, it's great. Taste is exactly how it smells, dark fruits, fig, coffee, roasted coffee, sugar cane, bourbon barrel wood taste, tad smokey. My mouthfeel comparison may seem weird, but here goes. The feel on my tongue is the same as when I change motor oil. This thing is oil thick! No carbonation, just smooth, oily, goodness. All in all, the only down side is the abv per 6oz. Clocking in at 14% this is not something you should drive to get at a bar. I wish they made this more available through notable contracts such as Stone and give a case to the higher selling contracts. It would be safer to drink this in a place you don't have to drive after is all I'm getting at. Worth trying. Get it if you can.
Serving type: on-tap
