2.66/5 rDev -41.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Apperance: Pours out a sludgy dark brown. Just a wisp of dark brown head forms, which has basically no head retention or lacing. To be expected. Some carbonation is apparent on the edges of the glass.
Smell: Initial smell is of booze and intense sweetness. Some barrel is in there too. Not getting much else.
Taste: Intense milk chocolate sweetness up front, very cloying. A bit of barrel shows. Rest of the back end is mostly pure rubbing alcohol. Finish is cloying and messy.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Very thick on the palate initially with appropriate carbonation. Again, finish is super hot and messy which retracts. Overall, I did not like this beer and won't seek it out. All hype. Super boozy and sweet with no balance.

Shared this on Christmas Eve and it was fitting… it fell on a Tuesday night
Definitely excited for this one and has been on my bucket list
A - Dark as night with a tan finger head
S - Smell comes through as roast, vanilla, oak, chocolate, and bourbon as this barrel really comes through. You would expect this out of the high ABV
T - Definitely the best part of this beer as the bourbon really was not too powerful. The character of the barrels balanced extremely well with the vanilla, chocolate and roast flavors. This is the best 18+% beer I have had
M - Medium bodied for sure with low to minimal carbonation which resounds perfectly with this beer
O - Definitely one of my favorite stouts. I would not put this at the top, but it is hard to improve on this beer. Would love to try the variants some day
