Perfectly balanced and very drinkable for an imperial. Alcohol is well masked by unsubtle tones of vanilla and cream. Just the right degree of bitterness and hints of oak.

New Holland hit a gold mine! Fresh malty smell, with a hint of bourbon. Nice pour with a darker thin lacing. Tastes like heaven. A bit thinner than most stouts. The bourbon oak flavor mixes in perfect, with a hint of vanilla. Smooth, clean finish. Bottoms up!

My go-to barrel aged stout. Bourbon tidal waves knock you on your ass and you let yourself get sucked in by the vanilla undertow, not caring if you drown in its boozy bliss. This is like the Black Sabbath of beers.

Outstanding Stout with a creamy flavor. I would definitely recommend this beer.
