So when speaking of beers that have a high expectation, this is it. Super high price point. I mean, 25 bucks at the brewery, damn cuz. Expectations met. Huge Bourbon flavor with a great body and wonderful flavor. Maybe a tad thin if i had to complain. Overall excellent. If i was a rich guy, id drink it often, but im not

This is the second time I am trying a bomber of this beer in the last two months. It's good, but it's lacking that wow factor I want from BA stouts, I don't think it stands out in the category. I know it may just be my palate right now at this moment. Worth a try but would not seek or trade for.

2012 bottle, drunk on January 31st, 2016.

Pitch black, no head to speak of.

Aroma is alcohol spirits.

Flavor is boozy and lacking stout character. Just kind of a sweet, malty, boozy thing.

Mouthfeel is thinner than expected and dead still.

This is the last time I'm boarding this hype train.
