2014 bottle

Pours black with a decent tan head. Head quickly goes down but leaves a nice ring around the edge of the glass. Not the thickest stout but def has some weight for sure

Smell is heavy bourbon, chocolatey fudge brownie and some smokiness.

Taste is awesome. You get a very nice burst of bourbon followed by a wave of chocolatey fudge goodness. Slight smoke taste but very quickly replaced with bourbon again. Not much alcohol burn at all.

Feel is a tad thin. When poured I thought it was going to feel much thicker. Very silky smooth though.

Overall a must have for sure. The base beer to this is amazing and the bourbon just improved it in certain ways.
