Pours thin from a bottle very little head. On the nose I smell plum and candied apples. Definitely get the booze. Very syrupy on the finish. Lots of chocolate on the back end.

I really wanted to like this. I’ve heard great things about the Bruery and decided to become a Society member to give them a try. This is supposed to be one of their best but sadly, like most of their beers, it’s just too sweet for my liking and very reminiscent of a dessert wine. I appreciate their ingenuity but I’m coming to the realization that their style, while interesting and complex, is just not my thing.

2015 version. Not a great looking stout. Kinda thin/no head etc. Aroma is bourbon and cardboard. Big and boozy. Chocolate, bourbon and buttery greatness. Quite a great stout.

2016 at a bottle share. Looks and smells great but the booze really detracted from this one for me. The coffee in Mocha Wednesday helps mask it but drinking this one I was glad I only had a taster. I can't imagine opening a bottle for less than four people.
