375ml bottle poured in a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

A~ beautiful dark red towards the edges and dark as night in the center. Not much of a head and no lacing.

S~ sweet red wine followed by dark bitter chocolate, and burnt coffee. Caramel and vanilla from the bourbon. No boozyness at all!

T~ yup officially blown away! Sweet chocolate followed by amazing burnt coffee that Shaun seems to pull off so well. follows the nose with sweet red wine barrel funk and some nice oak qualities. So complex and balanced. Vanilla and caramel from the bourbon are just the icing on the cake. Wow!

M~ not super carbonated but right in the range where I like a stout to be. Smooth and crazy drinkable! And I can't stress this enough, NO BOOZYNESS!

O~ just crazy all around. A seriously amazing blend! The Port barrel dominates slightly here but in a good way. I believe it takes over the boozyness from the bourbon a bit leaving all the amazing vanilla, caramel, oaky aspects. Let's just say I wish I has a case! Yeah I know... But I can dream! Haha
