look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Shout out Dommys Pizza in Vandergrift, Pa! Aged a year on top of barrel age! Poured a opaque black color with a coffee head that came late and fizzled quick. Smell is heavy on bourbon with some vanilla that is trying to get through. A lot of alcohol present on nose. Tastes a lot better than it smells for sure. Smooth and toasty coffee and bourbon shine in this special selection. Roasted malts stick to your tongue while the bourbon warms the sides of your mouth. At 11.2%, I thought I would have trouble getting it down but that was not the issue. Mouthfeel is thick and warming and flavor is popping everywhere. Overall a lot better than I thought for high gravity stout. Tons of robust flavor with some whisky reminding you to drink it slow!
