This review has been a long time coming. With the official arrival of Fall, and hence "stout season" I'll have at it.
The smell is nothing short of amazing. Chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, coffee, and a hint of cream. No astringent smell that often comes when you get in the 10%+ range.
Taste follows the smell, loads of coffee and cocoa. The vanilla and bourbon on the backbone are in perfect harmony with the overall taste. This is the prime example of a stout aged in bourbon barrels for me. Nothing over the top, just a balance that is not achieved by any others.
Mouthfeel is medium-heavy, not overbearingly coating or sticky like many bourbon stouts.
Overall this is the beer for me. The one I'd rank top 5 that never seems over-hyped.
Get some. Store some. Drink many.
