look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured from a bottle into snifter glass
it is pretty dark not much head
the smell is amazing smell pretty boozy
the taste is not as boozy as it smells can tell it is an oatmeal stout
it is real smooth not hott and could drink it down but seem stronger
than 9.5 % but maybe cause i already had been drinking
it is a definite must try if you can find worth it for sure
only thing i dont have another bottle

Pours black with a super tiny brown head. Smells are dark chocolate, cinnamon, bourbon, hints of vanilla. Starts and finishes with a great bourbon backbone. Tastes a lot like it smells , chocolate, cinnamon, bourbon, oak, A bit boozy but overall pretty smooth. the texture is great, not chalky but thick enough to hold its great flavors for a whileI'll buy another one, which means a lot from me. I love watching our Ohio breweries get bigger and bigger. Buy this beer.
