What can you say that hasn't already been said about this? I get the debate of whether this is truly a craft, etc. But it's darn good drinking and relatively available. It's definitely a boozier tasting beer, but I'm drinking the 2016 version. So perhaps a little aging would mellow out the twinge. Frankly, I don't mind it. And it's a consistent pour when I'm looking for a stout to do the job. Anytime I see this for sale, I'll reload. It's a great beer. *Craft or not.

The gold standard of BA beers. I pick up a ton of caramel and oak on the tongue. I love it.
