growler from the SH IRS release yesterday that my buddy brought and was barely drank. he recommended i take the leftovers home to taste, so here we are. enjoyed from a beer hunter snifter.

a - brew poured an oily black, plenty of carb and spotty lacing.

s - i can smell the sweet roast from across the room...upon closer inspection yep...big sweet booze soaked chocolatey milk stout. some dark fruitiness and a wash of woody booze.

t - YUM. damn. that's good. leads with the barrel and then slaps you in the face with sweet milk chocolate and then tickles your mouth with a boozy tingle. definitely on the sweet side, but not overly so and the barrel really adds a nice dimension and seems to balance out the flavors. some nice nuttiness on the backend of the flavor too.

m - extremely silky smooth...carb lasted overnight in the growler and the feel is extremely palatable for a brew this size.

o - overall, had heard good things about this one and super glad to try it as it is definitely worth seeking out. delicsious beer...extremely well made and tasty.

Serving type: growler

On tap at Pin's.

5.5oz. pour into a Pin's mini-snifter. Solid black pour, with a small dark brown head that settled to a ringlet and head there, leaving dots of lacing and a few oily legs on the glass. Nice aroma of dark roasty malts and sweet fudge, some boozy fumes. The taste was a bit of a let-down after what the nose promised, but it was still good. Dark malts, a fair amount of roast, toasted oak, semi-sweet chocolate, coconut, and a booziness ever present in the background, coming out more as it warmed. Unfortunately the bourbon wasn't too pronounced, and it came off more solvent-like than anything. The body was medium, maybe edging on medium-full, but it felt like the booze thinned it out a bit, keeping it from being a smooth sipper, though it definitely improved after sitting a few minutes at room temp. Overall a solid BA stout, though needing some work. I'd still like to try it again.

On tap at smoke and barrel.

Has a great first impression - dark upon dark with slight lacing. Aroma is very boozy/bourbon with some vanilla oak mixed with roastiness. Smell absolutely delicious/intoxicating. Taste is an explosion of vanilla bourbon milk chocolate sweetness. This is certainly close to BCBS and needs to be bottled in high quantities immediately.
