Stunning. As good as it gets.

Amazing complexity and structure. Perfect balance between cherry, chocolate, and bourbon as it moves across your mouth. No artificial sweetness and not syrupy at all. Finish is dry baker's chocolate.

Easily the best milk / sweet stout that I have ever had.

One of the best adjunct stouts ever made. Period. Better than cherry rye.

Out of a CCB snifter. This is truly an awesome brew. Sooooo chocolately, not overly sweet or syrupy. Boubon nose is just about perfect. Cherry blended in well, unlike BC Cherry Rye cherry cough syrup. Drink it with some chocolate because they pair rather well.
