A great flavorful beer that is not for the inexperienced beer drinker. The last few drops taste like strait up bourbon. Great beer I will drink this beer where ever I find it.

Purchased two, one now, one to cellar.
Little carbonation, good amount of bourbon.
Chocolate, raisin, vanilla, toasted almond.
Good, but pricey.

Poured the bottle.

Pours murky black, nice amount of head.

Smells of raisin and bourbon right up front. As it warms I'm getting chocolate, toasted coconut, hint of fig.

Ethanol taste up front, chocolate covered raisin, taste is less dimensional than the smell.

Mouth feel is thick and carbonated. Goes down smooth. Very nice. Just how a stout should be.

Nice Bourbon Barrel Stout. Super pricey.
