Such a great stout. bought this back in September and put it in the cellar until last night when I put it in the fridge. opened it up tonight and man, this is what a bourbon barrel aged stout should taste like. Just enough bourbon to taste but not overwhelming. I only wish it poured a larger head. at 11% I'm already feeling it

Jet black. Thin tan head. Nice lace patches.

Most abundant aroma is bourbon and oak. Hints of lactose. Mellow roasted character.

Moderate roasted flavor with dark chocolate, wheat toast and toasted nuts. Mild sweetness. Subtle, earthy hop. Smooth, rich bourbon oak in the end. Very well balanced.

Full bodied. Well carbonated. Somewhat sticky feel.

Awesome barrel aged double milk stout. Stands up to the best barrel aged stouts I've had.
