Had on tap at the Hopleaf.

Look is black as night, but also transparent and red when looked at on certain angles.

Smell filled with strong black cherry and chocolate notes.

The taste of this thing is fantastic. Chocolate covered cherries with no boozy burn. Extremely drinkable for a 13% beer.

Feel is very smooth. Not complaints on that end.

All in all, it lived up to the hype and then some. Glad I finally go to check this off my list of wants. Would obviously drink again if it somehow fell in to my lap.

Phenomenal beer! But side by side with CCB's life is like, this is just a good beer. More cherry, and equal to less mouthfeel. I wish I was able to try it fresh. Before ABInBev....

Perfect across the board, just like every Bourbon County stout I've had the pleasure of trying. This one was aged for a little over two years, only adding to the excellence.
