4.75/5 rDev +8%
The beer pours out black like motor oil.
The aroma is sweet chocolate, cocoa, thick and chunky chocolate, hints of umami.
The flavor follows with that sweet milk chocolate throughout. Hints of smoked flavor, but it is very hidden. Molasses on the back end. No alcohol detected. A rounding flavor and a few spikes of bourbon, but it is not an bourbon forward beer.
A full chewy mouthfeel.
An incredible brew that reminds me of a more bourbon forward Abyss.

Pours a motor oil sludge black color. Huge brown fluffy head that slowly settles into a puffy cap. Small wall of lacing on the glass. 4.25
The aroma has some chocolate note, sweet bourbon and vanilla, and a sour berry twang. The smoke comes through every now and again but you need to pull to get it. Standard issue bourbon barrel aged stout. 4
The taste is of a big malty stout. The roast is moderate, not overly aggressive, and has more of a milk chocolate flavor. The smoke pops out more in the flavor but its not dominate. The bourbon brings a caramel ribbon with some vanilla. A sharp sour berry and/or oak note. A bit acidic. 4
The feel is full bodied. Sweet, sour, and bitter on the palate. Some stickiness in the finish. 4
A flavorful BBA stout. It needs more smoke to make it stand out more from the rest. Its well made but it doesn't stand out from the others. 4
