taste = Vanilla. Bourbon. Roasted malts.

mouthfeel = Creamy. Very thick.

overall = Liked it a lot but the alcohol content is a little high. One is enough. Not a daytime beer.

Growler pour for Super Bowl. No head, as dark as you can get before it's black, with hints of red, very slight hints.

Smell is decent, not as intense as other bba beers: weakened vanilla, molasses, etc., some bourbon.

Taste is similar but more complex: dark fruit, some chocolate and coffe in there. Vanilla molasses and light bourbon notes are prominent.

Feel is nice and smooth, extremely light carbonation, a sense of earthiness to it. Enjoyable beer but not in the same league as other bba stouts, re: BCBS, BN, KBS. But don't let that sway you, go ahead and try it it's good. Cheers.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Appearance - dark dark brown to black. Nice mocha 2 finger head. Nice and frothy.

Smell - smells like a sweet dessert almost. I think this one is most certainly a dessert stout.

Taste - good. I like it. Can really taste the barrel.

Mouthfeel - nice and smooth

Overall - very nice stout offering, plus DRAGON,
