Rich, intense chocolate and espresso flavors.Thick, heavy mouthfeel. Sweet and viscous. This is a huge beer, but one I can only take in small, limited qualities, like a sweet shot of espresso.

Bottle as a ridiculous extra in trade. Big thanks! Pours dark brown from the bottle and settles essentially black and opaque in the glass with a small khaki brown head. Aroma is definite whiskey, caramel, vanilla, oak, some marshmallow. Flavor starts with dark fruits, chocolate covered raisins, whiskey, charred oak, long finish of char and vanilla. Pretty smooth but seemingly not a lot of rich flavor coming from the malts. Body is silky smooth, medium plus but perhaps not quite enough to handle the barrel, with low plus carbonation. Solid beer, but not sure I get all the hype I’ve heard about this and it’s variants. Certainly a good beer, but the bar is pretty high for BA stuff these days.
