A wonderfully balanced beer that incredibly gets better every time I open a bottle. Strong bourbon flavor balanced with chocolate and vanilla malt. Perfectly balanced. The test piece for any bourbon barrel aged Russian imperial stout if you ask me. In a word? Perfection.

Chocolate, bourbon and vanilla on the nose. Tastes between chocolate, vanilla, oak and charred bitter malts. Was expecting this to be outrageously bold, but the flavors are balanced. Finishes very dry.
