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.
