look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: pours a brownish black. a small tannish head that has strong retention and leaves a small lacing behind. some brownish alcohol legs. opaque with darkness.

Smell: brown sugar, bourbon, dark fruits. chocolate and alcohol warmth

Taste: opens up with a good kick of bourbon and booze. sweet notes of brown sugar and dark fruits. towards the backend there is some dark malts ranging from roasted to some slight chocolate. strong alcohol bite.

Mouthfeel: heavy, sweet and strong alcoholic warmth and bitterness.

Overall: a very solid ba stout. certainly worth a try and one I'd happily go for again but not going to give up too much for it. great sweetness that isn't cloying and full of complexity. I wouldn't expect anything less than this from Great Lakes.

Nice and very well balanced BA stout. Is very good and has some real good flavor. It is a bit light for such a big stout. Which I guess is good since it makes for easy drinking. I was told to let I sit a year and didn't. In retrospect I wish I would have. The problem is I am from Cleveland and needed something celebratory since I found out Lebron came back today~
