look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Beautiful brown ale poured into a Firestone taster. The smell is intoxicating. Lots of dark chocolate. Lots of booze. Loads of oak. This is a whiskey lovers desert. The taste is like a whiskey white russian. Very amazing chocolate, whiskey, coffee flavors in there. The best stout I have ever tasted. Lots of boozy bite on the tongue and very warming, but very smooth for 18.5%. Bravo Bruery, bravo! Can't wait to age on of these bad boys. 2013 series.
