This is an amazing beer. Rich in flavor with full body. The beer is a substantial stout that could easily stand on its own. The bourbon adds to the richness and makes it very flavorful, but is not overbearing.

Almost gave it all 5's, but there /could/ be something better. Not sure how.

A near-great monster. Maybe because it's my first bourbon barrel stout I was a bit overwhelmed by the taste of the alcohol, or what seemed like it. I loved the look and texture, but kept feeling like someone had dropped a half-shot of bourbon in it. It got better as it warmed and I adapted. Looking forward to trying it again, especially on a cold winter's night.
