4.43/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter. 2012 vintage.

(A)- Pours near pitch black, but ends up being just a really dark burnt sienna color. Almost no froth, but some minimal tan bubbles; not surprising considering the massive ABV on this.

(S)- Big notes of cocoa and raisin. Equally big rich notes of vanilla and caramel barrel oak notes.

(T)- Again, like the smell, very big notes of raisin and a bourbon-like burnt caramel sweetness. Subtle vanilla and cocoa show up as it warms. Very nice barrel characteristics.

(M)- It has a mellow carbonation level, but it fits due to how huge this is. Despite its massive body, the 18%ABV is extremely well hidden and overall, quite a smooth beer.

(O)- It is just great how well Kuhnhenn can hide their massive ABV beers, and this one is no different. A quality BA stout that definitely surprises you with its immense richness, but restrained booziness and great balance that shows the barrel quite well. Not positive how well this would age, but its definitely worth trying this now if you have one.
