4.8/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

a thick black pour with half a finger of head which quickly turned into a ring of small brown bubbles around the glass. smells of dark chocolate, coffee, slight hint of vanilla/bourbon barrel, subtle sweet maple/caramel scent. oh dear god this is PHENOMENAL. sweet, oh so sweet of a nectar. definitely getting lots of maple, lots of barrel flavor, sweet milk chocolate, mocha flavors. i've never had such a sweet delicious stout.

full body with low carbonation, a syrupy delight to enter your mouth.

i know this beer is hyped like all hell, and let me tell you, it IS all it's worked up to be. i've had fbs, and kbs, and this is nothing like either. i believe this is the best stout i've had to date.
