@ Ridgewood

Solid black covered with a sticky beige cap and some drippy lacing. Fudgy, slight Bourbony aromas...lactose sweetness, caramel, vanilla, light sherry, oak, perhaps a bit of hazelnut. Huge malty flavor: creamy Bourbon, loads of rich chocolate, charred roast, lactose, and a dark fruity sweetness. Thick, textured mouthfeel that dries out a bit in the finish. A little warming, but certainly not hot by any means. A good, rich barrel-aged stout that leaves the lips sticky with crazy richness.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Deep dark opaque brown in color with a small khaki colored head. Aromas are butterscotch, sweet creamy cocoa, leather, vanilla, berries, caramel, a touch of liquor, and faint woodiness. Flavors are sweet, smooth, and lengthy. Lactose sweetness, milk chocolate, cocoa, dark chocolate, and a pile of sweet syrup soaked drippy miscellaneous purple fruit. Big flavorful ball of sweet fruity chocolate swimming over caramel, vanilla and alcohol. No overwhelming bourbon in aroma and flavor but it is present. Mouthfeel is excellent. Very smooth, fluid, soft, a touch of fine grittiness. This is fairly easy to consume given its size...

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a near black color with a small dense brown head that settles into a light ring.

The aroma is sweet. Light roasted malt scent with a hint of anise. Mellow caramel under current. Slight acidic twang.

The taste is of a moderate roast, has more bite than in the aroma. Lots of sweet notes going on. Big caramel and milk sugars. Light bourbon with a tart dark berry action. Some bitter chocolate in the finish. Reminds me of BCBS but not as sweet and boozy.

Nice full chewy body. Soft carbonation with a sticky finish. Slight bitterness and acidity in the finish. ABV is well hidden.

A good barrel aged stout. Quite sweet but has nice mellow flavors.

Serving type: growler
