Pours a deep brown opaque color with garnet highlights at the edges and a thin later of milk chocolate head that dissipates leaving no trace.
Booze, malted milk balls, molasses, and oak lead the nose, with nutty roast malt forming the backbone. Hints of plums and raisins surface, and a hint of earthy hop.
Flavor is dominated by dark fruit initially, raisins, figs, and alcohol linger throughout. Roast malt surfaces late, with oak and a hint of citrus rounding the profile. As it warms chocolate dominates the taste.
Body is fairly thick, with minimal carbonation, and an alcoholic warmth can be felt throughout the sip.
A very tasty brew that could benefit from a little aging to soften the alcohol. Would definitely buy again.
Serving type: growler

So this is my go-to stout. i must say that it may just be me but the later/current versions taste a bit sweeter than the original (but that may just be me). Anyway-don't be scared at the high 4 bottle price as it's well worth it (pairs great with a thick cut grilled T-Bone BTW). If your local craft pub has this on draft - even better. I actually had it on nitro once and well...long strange trip/story there...be careful as this dragons tail will leg sweep you before you know it - enjoy!

A: Nearly black, dark brown when held to the light. Small, white creamy head which quickly bubbled away.
S: Very subdued, roasted malt, chocolate, where's the vanilla and bourbon?
T: Creamy chocolate, vanilla and warming bourbon! There it is! Very well balanced.
M: medium thick, creamy
A little lacking in the smell department, but well balanced and a good value. Probably one that will go into the regular rotation.
