Dark black syrupy looking stout with no foam or sign of carbonation. This is the 2016 version with 4 months of age at room temperature in the south (perfect). Smells like bourbon barrels and dark fruit. Very easy drinking stout with no bitterness, just dark fruit and slightly sweet bourbon and vanilla. Slight carbonation makes for easy sippin. I like it a lot for a very sophisticated stout that sips a lot like a fortified wine. The bourbon barrel leaves a very clean taste complimenting the dark fruit, vanilla flavors. I am amazed how nicely this is crafted.

Finally had and it may be the best bbs that I have ever had,have had most of the top dogs in the genre but this is king.Thick,sweet but not overly,slight vanilla bourbon and coffee aroma,but the dense depth of taste and mouthfeel puts this in another class
