This beer was really nice. It was a little hot when I had it, but was among the top BA stouts I've had.

Big rep beer that lives up to the hype (at least when sampled at tap room on 2014 release date)

Fantastic stout. One of the most surprising aspects of this beer is that despite the high alcohol content, it is not overly boozy. It has a nice smell and is really smooth. One of the best stouts I have had.
