22 oz bottle.

Pours a still motor oil black body with a fizzy light tan head. Nose is dominated by brandy, light oak, roast and a touch of molasses. Body and flavor starts off well enough, with a silky soft mouthfeel and an initial sweet brandy fruit punch but then quickly thins out into a woody, harsh roast horror show. Much of the base stout is lost in translation here and even that would be ok if the liquor notes of the barrel wouldn't quickly become consumed by acrid roast and wood. Not good.
