The only beer I've had that's better is Bourbon County Stout. If you enjoy BBA beers & Imperial Stout, this is a must have!

Thanks Jeffrey2310. 2013 bottle. Pours pitch black with no discernable head. Lots of chocolate on the nose with hints of bourbon. Probably the best representation of chocolate in a stout that I have come across. Chocolate dominates the palate with hints of vanilla, bourbon, and dark fruit. Full bodied mouthfeel that is bolstered by the utter lack of carbonation. Finishes slightly bitter, with a final flourish of chocolate. Overall, an extremely complex and layered stout that definately benefited from a year in the cellar.
