Pours dark with a nice head. Dark roast aroma. Taste: sweet and roasty dark malt driven taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Dark roasted barley malt with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, charred toast, biscuit, smoke, caramel, and yeast. Sweet taste of molasses and vanilla. Lots of dark fruit coming out from aging. Notes of cherry, prune, fig, raisin, and plum. Excellent stout.

From a bottle dated 11/19/12. Looks and smells vaguely reminiscent of Bourbon County Brand Stout, but the comparison ends there. Perhaps due to age, the beer is bitter and funky (not good funky) and a little boozy. Not great.
