The first barrel bourbon stout I have had the privilege to taste! Pours a nice deep black, with a clinging tan head about a fingertip length. Strong smell with a nose that helps to enhance the taste, which is definitely one of the creamiest stouts I've ever tasted. Each sip is delectable and lingers around the mouth for many moments, providing a high level of consistency and satisfaction because of it. Overall a 5/5 for it being the first BBS I've had, and what is to me a well crafted stout.

Mine was a 22oz that I found for $7.99 at my local liquor store!

One of my absolute favorite beers! Had this on cask at New Holland and it tasted much creamier than the regular Dragon's Milk...tasted JUST like a chocolate shake!
