4.3/5 rDev -7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A- Pours nice,creamy, and thick. First inspection is zero light passing through this dark one. However I do notice it's actually a very dark brown with some light penetrating the top. Leaves a tan thin head.
S- Is roasted chocolate, dark malts, and faint bourbon and oak. The bourbon comes out more as it warms.I notice toffee, and the alcohol certainly comes out as it warms.
T- Taste is definitely an enjoyable ride with flavors playing off one another. Thick toffee sweetness followed by bitter hops and bitter chocolate. The bourbon presence follows with a somewhat chalky aftertaste that is different but not a negative.
M- Mouthfeel is warm, creamy and superb. It's a powerful brew but still drinkable.
D-Overall this is a world class stout. It's definitely deservng of its accolades and it's complex and enjoyable.
