Dark as night - slight tan head. Full, thick entry - so sweet. Big roast hit - then the sweetness takes over. Full mouthfeel...but the sweetness just kills.

Big alcohol burn on sides of mouth. A burnt sugar flavor hits me mid-mouth. Big roasty finish makes for a good out. The alcohol fire lingers.

I'd prefer this aged for at least a year to take out some of the sweetness.

Poured into my Mikasa snifter.

Pours a deep black with very little head. Almost no lacing.

Smell is vanilla and bourbon. Smells soo decadent. Incredible.

Taste is incredible. Vanilla more vanilla and the great bourbon. Soo smooth. Heaven

Mouthfeel is decadent. Thick smooth, light carbonation. Excellent.

Overall this is my second favorite stout of all time. Simply superb. Makes me want to buy a reserve society membership just for this.
