Had some time to think this guy over for a bit(but not to long to forget our encounter), had it at the Reserve Society Initiation party pourd into a taster.
Had low expectations going into this guy because of all the hype.
A- This is the tough part given the circumstances, very rushed pour(within the madness) into a taster, it becomes a bit tricky to rate appearance. After the pour I get away from the chaos and this guy looks great. didn't get a huge head, but it dissipates quickly to a nice brown ring around the glass.
s- if i could give this a 6 it would be well deserved, this guy smells amazing. i must have sat there smelling this guy for several minutes, could have sat there all day. strong smell of chocolate (ofcourse), a lot of bourbon goodness, and vanilla
t- cant describe this, its absolutle amazing. are you kidding me, the hype is real? tons of chocolate, vanilla and very low alcohol burn considering the abv.
m- perfect, exactly how i like my stouts, thick, full mouth feel. the flavor is everywhere!
d- done already! extremely drinkable, could have easily drank this all day. careful with this guy its so drinkable it will creep on you quick.
some say the alcohol taste is high in this guy, i didn't get it at all. in fact i cant believe just how drinkable this beast is.
You want a beer that has a good chance to RUIN a style for you this is as close as it gets. to me this is perfection in a glass and ill tell you it infuriates me to say that because i didn't want it to be so. must try this again! hype well deserved.
