Simply put, this is one of the best stouts I have ever tasted. Ridiculously smooth, sweet, flavorful with no sign of the abv. Another winner from Hill Farmstead.

I really quite enjoyed this beer. First open, pour khaki colored head, lovely bourbon notes and subtle coffee. Taste for me was oak, spice from the barrel, bourbon and roastiness of the stout, not a whole lot of coffee though. I found it to be very balanced and well made, one I will always seek out.

Split this with a buddy at room temp this weekend. Very tasty notes of chocolate and slight vanilla and some oak barrel. Boozy but smooth....very impressed with this one!
