Sweet baby Jesus! Looks like motor oil, smells like bourbon and sweetness. Beautiful smooth bourbon that just lingers on the palate. This is an outstanding stout that I'm so happy to have had.

One of the best BBA stouts around. Would happily trade for more again. This was provided as an extra in a trade and I got the better end of the stick in my opinion. If you like BBA stouts this is hands down a "need to try".
