Deserving of its world class rating. It's a sitter; it sits heavy in the glass with that motor oil appearance and texture from restrained carbonation, that "tar pit" look. Not so far from the densest BBA stouts, like BCBS, and it definitely has that slickness on the tongue. The trick here, though, is that the oak from the barrel is as present as the bourbon, so it's not just a boozy hammer, it's oakey. Should make anyone's list of favorite BBA stouts.
