Big thanks to jwelsh for this one.
A-Pours a deep brown to black with no head and looks like no carbonation.
S-Some charred wood, marshmallows, maybe even the entire smores. A bit of whiskey, but not overwhelming at all. Some vanilla and other barrel notes. Chocolate
T-All of the same flavors listed in the smell. The whiskey is a bit more predominant in the flavor than it was in the aroma. Very oaky, chocolate, very balanced.
MF-A little thin and low on the carbonation. Nice and creamy though.
D-Really great, the whiskey doesn't dominate the beer too much. Really a solid BA stout.
