Probably one of the best stouts I've ever had. Thought that the first time I tried it, and now I'm having it again and saying the same thing.

Big, huge rich stout. Massive coffee over powers and leaves very little Bourbon to shine through. I was really excited about this and was craving a big BA stout on a cold
Winter night, instead I got waves of the classic 'coffee on the burner for too long' then got cold.In fairness, this was an issue with the batch I received (#25) It is exceptionally drinkable at 11.8% would like to try again, it tastes like it didn't stay in the barrel long at all~

One of the most disgusting beers ever made. Drain pour. I tried it a few times... Always drain pour.
