Awesome barrel aged stout. Gets better as it warms. Just doesn't compare with the Titans...

Poured from a 12 oz glass into a snifter, split with a friend.

Pours a deep brown opaque body with a small brown head that reduces to leave a ring of foam.

Aromas of vanilla, bourbon booze, sweet caramel, milk chocolate and molasses come through. Allowed to warm for an hour or so.

Upfront is bittersweet chocolate, whiskey, vanilla, caramel, finish is roasty, coffee, toasted malt. Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation.

Overall a solid BA stout, not quite bcbs but nice and balanced and flavorful.

By far my favorite stout from Great Lakes Brewing. Consumed in line at Tired hands at approximately 10:30 am lol. I loved every bit of this.
