From the first bottling run. Much thanks to Deuane for bringing a few of these back from OH for me. Out of a 22 ounce bomber bottle and into my tulip. The stout appears a nearly pitch black color with a healthy two fingers of creamy tan foam. Nose and flavors consist of deep roasted grains, both dark and bittersweet chocolates at varying degrees of intensity, raisins, prunes, a good amount of sweetness, almost too much at times. I recall reading that this particular batch only spent a few (3-4?) months in the barrels and it shows. Bourbon notes are mild, but certainly present. This one is quite viscous with medium carbonation. The bubbles help to cut through the richness. This is, without a doubt, a sipper for sure. Glad I got into it while it's still chilly out. Thanks again D!
