An absolutely perfect stout. I had this on tap (2015) today and was blown away by the flavor, smell and appearance of this fine brew. Tasted like chocolate with a very faint hint of coffee. It absolutely hid the alcohol to a point where you couldn't even taste the high ABV. An Absolute world class beer.

WOW...I bought 8 bottles of this beer before I even tasted it and I'm glad I did! Pours great, smells great (bourbon, vanilla, coffee, caramel), tastes great. I like to take a little swig of this beer and let it just sit in my mouth for a minute or two before I swallow. It's like an orgy of flavor all over my tongue!

Can't wait to taste it on tap at the brewery
