On-tap at the Portland International Beerfest. Two tickets at $1 each got you a 4oz pour of this. On-tap for the couple days I went, and I had a bunch of it. 2008 batch aged in Elijah Craig barrels.
A: Black with dark brown edges, nice finger of head recedes to a glass ring, no lacing. 4/5
S: Wonderful aroma of coconut, spice, chocolate and massive booze. 4.5/5
T: Heavy on the booze and wood. Possibly the most barrel forward stout I've had. Pepper and ash when cold. Cocoa and caramel are better appreciated as it warms up. 4/5
M: Surprisingly thin side of medium, slightly tongue numbing, spritzy. 3/5
O: A good -bal stout to be sure. Not quite in the echelon of my favorite stouts but a solid example none the less. 4/5
Serving type: on-tap
