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.

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.
