Thanks to Anthony for sharing.

Pours black in color with a small tan head. Bourbon, vanilla, and oak aromas. A decent amount of chocolate, quite a bit of roasted malt, and maybe some booze. The flavor is a bit roasty and heavy on the oak for my tastes. Bourbon, vanilla, and some cocoa powder. A little bit of alcohol heat, too.

A little sad to see this one leave the collection, but I suppose International Stout Day is the day to do it.

A: Pours a viscous looking dark chocolate color with a thin tan head. The head dissipates pretty quickly. No real signs of lace.

S: Raisin skin, port wine, whiskey, chocolate, vanilla, charred oak and some fudge. Raisin is a bit too strong for me in here, but I like the depth.

T: Opens velvety and chocolatey with a whiskey lacing and a touch of alcohol that warms with each sip. Hints of dark fruit, charred wood, plum, cola and rye bread.

Sent by Romulux, thanks as always!

This is the 100% Rye version I believe. Looks the part, dark brown with a lingering ring for head/retention. Roast and malt in the aroma, possibly some spice. Not much of a -bal presence here. Drinks roasty, bitter chocolaty with a good presence of oak but again, muted -bals. Mouthfeel seems a little thin, the beer a little overcarbonated. Overall it's not bad but doesn't stand out.

4, 4, 3.5, 3, 3.5
