This is one of if not the best beers I have ever had. The best stout by a mile. super complex dark fruit, chocolate, bourbon yummyness. I wish I could drink this every day.

On Tap at Barrelworks in Buelton, this stuff is amazing! Deep, dark, black pour with very little head that fades quickly. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak and bourbon. Taste follows the same line with a fantastic bourbon cocoa finish. Mouthfeel is perfectly smooth. This beer is everything you want in a rich stout...X10! By far, my favorite stout ever...

Reviewed from notes. On tap @ the source in Buellton for the Bretta Rose release.

A: Pours black with a 1/4-inch thick mocha head which fades to the rim and leaves a few spots of lace.

N: Dark roasted malts, mellow coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, toffee, caramel, bourbon.

T: Follows nose with more oaky wood and malty chocolate and coffee.

M: Moderate body and light carbonation. Finishes rich, smooth, slightly bitter, coffee and bourbon/chocolate.

O: An old (7 to 8 year) barrel of Black Zantus was "discovered". Find some more of this, please.

On tap at Firestone Walker Barrelworks in Buellton, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, brown sugar, toffee, slight coffee, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, coffee, bourbon, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with great smells and rich flavors that are super tasty.
