Dramatically underrated stout, beautiful cascade of foam from the effervescent center for chocolaty aroma. The mild undertones of chocolate and coffee pair effortlessly in the taste utopia that is dragons milk. The finish is smooth as the teet of a playboy bunny on your 18th birthday. This beer is a homerun!

Poured from a bottle into snifter glass from a 2013 Vintage. Certainly a good candidate to rival bourbon county stout. Definitely considering the $9 a piece bottle price. Smell is great and taste exceeds that. Definitely a great bourbon barrel aged stout. I will be buying a bunch and aging some as well.

This beer has quickly become one of my personal favorites, although I've noticed that it's not for everyone, due to how strong it is.

It's color is black as pitch, it's smell, sweet and rich.

It has a smooth feel in the mouth, I could detect oaken flavors in it as well as chocolate and coffee undertones. It delivers a very nice aftertaste that leaves you wanting more.

I also thought it to be very good while enjoying a steak.
