2011 bottle.

A wonderfully balanced stout. Great roast flavor but without bitterness or astringency. And the roast comes with a rounded sweetness of chocolate.

Nicely full flavor while easy to drink. This stout left me wanting more, and it wasn't so big that it filled me up.

A nearly perfect beer!

2012 Vintage, split three ways, with a big cigar

Appearance: this beer pours a "black as night color" from the bottle with just a little toasted marshmallow colored head. The head goes quick though and just leaves midnight black in the glass. As you swirl it, the beer leaves legs like a perfect pour of bourbon

Smell: can smell this from across the room. It is like being in a coffee shop and having the barista drop in a dram of bourbon into your coffee. I found the smell to truly be perfect, as is clear by my rating of this brew. Lots of depth to the aroma- some hidden vanilla and blackberry notes.

Taste: I should just leave this blank, because I was so blown away by how this tasted that I was truly speechless yesterday when we cracked this. Front is pure espresso, roast/toasty notes are unavoidable- then the transformation takes place. Bourbon, toffee, salty caramel, almond, and marshmallow were all easily identifiable. So damn smooth.

Overall: I am not sure what else I could ask for in a beer- puts a 100$ bottle of bourbon to shame.
