2012 bottle crushed druing Sugar Bowl hope solo

A- Rather transparent for a BA stout, especially with this amount of ABV. Little to no head. Thin lacing around the bottle.

S- Big bourbon upfront. Chocolate malty in back. Dates perhaps raisin thin in back.

T- Rich chocolate bourbon. Very smooth. This is for the sweet beer lovers. Probably wouldn't work if you are a die hard strict RIS fan.

M- Pretty smooth, with some carbonation going down the throat. Kinda thin. Surprised by that. I have had this many times, and I don't remember it being this thin.

O- I think?? a well crafted beer by The Bruery. It seems their most popular beers have to have a sweet factor.
