Its difficult to get a perfect 5 rating with stouts, half of them have the exact same SRM dark as fugggg color going for it. This one had amazing 1" of tan head though, and retention through the roof.

Great sweet bourbon, chocolate, vanilla and caramel, none of which are understated, they are all gargantuan competitors that somehow get along.

Taste was warming, bourbon, and chocolate in no small way. Quite drinkable too, not one of those big beers that is good in a 2oz pour, you can crush 20oz of this no problem.

Top notch, 1st tier bourbon barrel stout stuff.

Never had any previous batches, but I was blown away by this beer. I hope it makes it's way into bottles. Marshmallow, chocolate macaroon goodness! The mouthfeel is unreal on this one..
