4.21/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Nice jet black pour with a small off white head. Looked good in a Sam Adams beer glass.
The aroma was pleasant, what I would expect from a stout, I was anticipating some of the whiskey bouquet, but I couldn't detect any.

The first sip was real nice, big and full, good round stout, with a slight hint of a whiskey.
The mouth feel was super... Big, lush , round , filling my entire mouth with goodness.

With the aftertaste is when I first really detected the whiskey. At first I wasn't sure but after the second sip, no question about whiskey here. But it does not seem to be bourbon, this was too smooth for that.

Very enjoyable beer, something to have one for a night.
