look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I don't see any dates on this one but I would estimate around 2 years old.

A: Cork comes off with just the lightest, faintest hiss. Pours a dark brown, oddly not as pitch black as I was expecting. Tiniest little fizzy head despite the most aggressive pour I could possible give it. Fades quickly. Essentially zero lacing.

S: Lots and lots of sweet dark fruits. Smells a lot like brandy and bourbon (duh). Loaded with sickly sweet caramel, toffee, molasses, raisins and vanilla. Not much roasted malt pokes through, maybe a hint of chocolate. Big and boozy.

T: Stinging bourbon and brandy. Lots of it. Up front there's lots of dark fruit, toffee and caramel. Turns into chocolate and vanilla in the middle, becoming very very oaky in the finish. A little char mixes in with the oak and then it's more burning brandy. Finishes dry and hot.

M: Thick and heavy. Being almost completely flat contributes to this effect.

O: It's not bad, the stout character is mostly swallowed up by all the brandy and bourbon. Surprising, especially given the decent age on this one. Might have to age one for maybe 5 years and see how it turns out. Too hot, too much spirits, not enough stout at this stage.
