after yesterday's heaven of 2016 bottles

poured into a fw glencairn

looks great slightly lighter than the 2016 but with a darker head

smells great, vanilla oak and chocolate, no oxidation whatsoever, taste like a fresh beer haha. very close to 2016 but with a bit more oak and roast
Taste is fantastic! I can't believe how well this has held up, I heard it was super hot, 4 years have mellowed this one out.
much like the 2016 there are waves of chocolate and bourbon, slightly less chocolate my than the 2016.
mouthfeel is medium thick, but not as big as the 2016. should be expected sitting at 11%
overall this is fantastic, I do t see if getting better than this, I'd drink it soon. if tour going to trade for this beer is trade for the 2016 instead, it taste like a bigger and bolder version of this guy. don't pass up the chance if you run into this one

Very smooth BA stout. Takes it to the next level where you can make this beer more smooth and subtle. This was a great treat, hope to try the other CFH to compare.
