look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Served from a corked and caged bottle into a Redhook Limited Release tulip.

Appearance- Pitch black with two finger mocha head that left pretty quickly. Fine lacing.

Smell- Caramel bourbon bomb. Some chocolate, heavy roasty malts, mild vanilla. Bourbon dominates the smell.

Taste- Wow. Caramel, vanilla, bourbon oak, mild chocolate. Smooth. Clean. Not too hot. Bitter finish. Pretty incredible.

Mouthfeel- Considerably lighter than I had guessed. Moderate carbonation. Smooth and mildly boozy. Wouldn't guess it's 12%.

Overall- Pretty fine stout. Heavy on bourbon, but not aggressive. Very well done.
