This is a great beer with some age on it. I think that it taste actually pretty bad when it is fresh. Kind of like Bourbon County Stout. But with a year or two on it, it is an amazing stout. The color, mouth feel , and nose even surpass the flavor in my opinion. Don't get me wrong the flavor is amazing but that is how good the other components are.
