Tasted from draft at Hunahpu day. Pours black with dark brown head. Aroma is bourbon, coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, caramel. Full bodied thick beer with a moderate sweetness and mild bitterness. Had it along with several other bourbon barrel aged and its up there with the best.

Bottle 2016.
A black opaque liquid with almost no head.

Nose is vanilla, caramel, woody notes and bourbon.

Taste is booze, bourbon, caramel, small smoky notes, woody, medium sweetness. The perfect balance between, vanilla, sweetness and bourbon in mouth.

Warmth alcohol feeling in the throat remembering us that it’s 13.9%

An amazing stout that I was lucky enough to have 2 pints of at a recent family reunion (early summer 2017) in the Kansas City area. I have to say it's the best stout I've ever had. It has a very high abv, but with the bourbon, chocolate and coffee flavors the alcohol is nicely distant. This was the best beer I had on a 2 week trip through the southeastern U.S..
