4 oz pour at tasting from a growler

A- Deep black holding all the light and goodness inside
S- Coco, vanilla, molassas, wood
T- WOW. This is on par with some well distributed and well reguarded Imperial Stouts. Coco and vanilla ice cream.
M- Silky smooth. Just like I like my stouts!

O- Hugely impressed with this offering from Cutters. I drank a bottle of Clown Shoes Undead Party Crasher a few days ago and Cutters edges that out. Very solid brew!

Updated review. Bought a 4 pack of bottles and was hugely disappointed. Tasted of burnt malt. Bitter and strange.

Thanks to Howard for this one!
Quick review from notes.

Brownish black body, fluffy tan foam forms a substantial head that lasts for a few minutes. Spotty lace around the edges.

Woody tobacco and trace bourbon in the aroma.

Taste is similarly woody with a considerable whiskey booziness, some bitter roast malt there underneath. Feel is somewhat astringent, not overly harsh but it's not subtle. Fairly rich, bitter, woody, and dry in the aftertaste with some residual char. Overall it was alright though I wonder if something went wrong here.
