Have had a few four ounce glasses at the Bruery in the past few weekends, served in their tulip glass, color is pitch black with not a glimmer of light anywhere, thick sludgy looking stuff, big 1 1/4 inch tan to medium brown foamy and creamy head, good lacing at first, head did not budge for close to five minutes, aroma consists of molasses, oak, rich dark chocolate, some mild coffee, roasted malts, mild port, tobacco, vanilla, sweet cocoa, prunes, burned caramel, and bourbon, flavor starts off with a big oak, taste, some sweet chocolate and vanilla in the middle, finish has a nice syrup taste mixed with tons of oak, bourbon comes through later on more pronounced but nothing major being a hair under twenty percent, easily the top three best tasting beers I have had of this alcohol content, some brown sugar and complex malt flavors come out as it continues to warm, almost like a marshmallow flavor by the end, very creamy with minimal booze in the flavor somehow, dry, roasted, bittersweet, oaky, and chewy mouthfeel, full bodied, very soft carbonation, taste lingers incredibly well, best mouthfeel for a stout that I have come across, drank this with no problem at all, cannjot explain how the alcohol is hidden well but it drinks like a beer maybe have of its ABV, not heavy at all, could down a 750 ml bottle and probably will at a later date, amazing drinkability, one of their best brews yet and that is sure saying a lot, the story about this beer is almost impressive as the beverage itself, this thing is going to age wonderfully too, good thing I was able to get a bunch of bottles to experiment with that, will be drinking again sooner than later, highly recommended

Thanks to my brewing buddy Steve for this one.
Pours up black with brown edges. Quickly fading brown head. Nose is chocolate malts, booze heat, raisins, black cherries, caramel. Tastes of all of the above, huge bourbon and oak, and then some. Thick bodied, smooth mellow carbo. Insane!

A- Pours lighter than expected, but still damn near black in color. Chocolately brown colors in the body near the edges with a very small head, that is more of a thin film on the top of the beer.
S- Big notes of sweet vanilla and bourbon right up front. The booze hits next on the nose with an oaky spiciness and plenty of heat. Dark malts, including coffee, chocolate, and burnt malts finish out the scent with a sweetness mixing in with oaky spiciness.
T- Starts off with a sweet bang of chocolate and vanilla flavors. Oak flavors and bourbon come next with some burn, but not as much as one would think. Creamy chocolate flavors come right after the burning sensation. Last flavor on the tongue at the end here is a blend of sweet and spicy chocolate and bourbon.
M- Thick, creamy, and boozey all the way through the drink, but surprisingly easy drinking and doesn't quite feel as strong as the label says. This will definitely put you under the table, but is so smooth and silky, it is almost a welcome feeling.
Overall, this is a great beer, but I'm not sure it is worth the price tag and the effort to procure. Still, a great beer that I would seek out and drink again.
