KInd of thought it would be a bit more subdued after nearly 3 years, but still a very solid stout, especially clocking in at 19.2% ABV

Final beer of the short-notice share with Justin and Morgan in FL. 750 ml bottle poured into red solo cups. Jet black body with tan head that slowly fades to a film. Legs but no lacing. Aroma of chocolate, bourbon, oak, roast malt, coconut, marshmallow, and dark fruits. Flavor is moderately sweet with cocoa, brown sugar, and plum notes, but also decently bitter with barrel, booze, and unsweetened chocolate highlights. Full body, oily, thick texture that coats the tongue, minimal carbonation, sweet, boozy hot finish.
