4.58/5  rDev -3%

thanks to Paul

pour was thick rich velvety black. little head.

nose was sweet chocolate and brandy, rich and full of dark fruit.

similar to nose, spices were a bit faint and hidden just beneath the smooth brandy. chocolate and light roasted malts really blended together to make this is way too smooth and easy. the brandy complimented this perfectly.

thick and full with a mild carbonation. sticky sweet finish.

overall. really good, would seek this out. kills the regular version.

A: Thick and viscous. The poster child for motor oil beers.

S: Apples, caramel, and cinnamon. The barrel influences are really obvious in the nose.

T: Chocolate syrup, chili, apple. A bit of a messy combination. The apple and chili together is a little odd. Very sweet, dessert in a glass.

M: Thick, thick, thick. Minimal carbonation.

O: A really unique, one-of-a-kind beer. Worth seeking out, just make sure you've got a few people to split it with, because this is some thick, heavy stuff.

Thanks to BA Dsgolovin for hooking me up with a growler of this nectar of the gods...

Apperance: Pitch black with a dark, dark, brown head.

Smell: Chocolate, Spices, Barrel, Coffee, Roasted malts.

Taste: Cinnamon, Chili, Chocolate, Brandy, Coffee.

Palate: Supersmooth and perfectly balanced. Medium carbonation. Goes down way to easy considering the abv.

One of the best stouts i've yet to try. World class.
