If I had one beer to drink for the rest of my life, forsaking all others, it would be this one. Dark, rich, flavorful, oaky, chocolatey, strong... It has almost everything my taste buds desire in a beer. Not as thick and rich as a stout, yet still dark and full. I'm a huge Wee Heavy fan and Saint Arnold didn't disappoint in delivering one here. Yet they added a fuller, richer taste by adding cocoa nibs and aging the brew in bourbon barrels, which adds a sweetness and oaky flavor that really caps off a near-perfect beer. My one HUGE complaint about this beer is that it's a one-off. One small batch and done. That contributed to the hefty price tag as well, ($13 for a 12 oz bottle!) but I got to have a few on my birthday in November and it's the present I'll likely remember most! I will miss this beer, though Founder's made one very similar (again, a limited small-batch) so I can at least prolong the experience just a bit longer.
