Hands down the best stout I've ever had. Might be a bit biased because I had it while at HF and in a perfect scenery but the mouthfeel is unbelievable. As silky as can be, plus the nose just bursts with coffee notes. Glad I was able to get this vintage bottle on site.

In the glass, GoM is a shiny black orb with a thin mocha blanket that settles to thin film in short order. A swirl stains the glass with oily brown legs that descend slowly.

On the nose, the oak and bourbon are combining flawlessly with the roasted malt to bring that rare and coveted marshmallow effect, while also providing notes of nutty, roasty coffee flowing into chocolatey mocha, as well as oak that's a touch waxy with a slight heat.

Taste features oak and bourbon with a spicy, dry and woody herbal redwood that brings a little heat but is also waxy and round with nuts, bitter roasted coffee, melted dark chocolate-esque malt, and a hint of vanilla. I just can’t get over the woodiness--this beer absolutely excels here, and finishes with a touch of mature dates.

Crisp with a thin fizz and a tongue-tingling round, slick heat, the body is thin and thins even more at the finish, preventing a dry finish from chalking up.

I'm not a BBA guy but this beer. Mother of god this beer is fantastic. Perfect amount of bourbon. The mouth feel is up there with Triple Shot as a chewy, thick stout. The only knock on this beer is the fact that I can't get more of it. A++ and a must trade for.
