look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

The first 3 things I noticed were the very dark color, the almost non-existing head, and the intense smell of the whiskey barrel this beer is aged in. The beer is full-bodied and strong (9.4% alc) but is actually quite smooth. I expected from the look and smell for it to be a bit more bitter and would probably preferred it to be. However, it was nice to drink a strong stout without feeling like it was trying to bowl you over.

Overall, a very nice stout.
