A - dark brown black beer with a mocha head that actually sticks and leaves a nice lacing
S # huge caramel, vanilla, toffee, whiskey, good milk chocolate, cold brew coffee, oak, just incredibly complex and yet well balanced at the same time
T $ big caramel, vanilla, cold brew coffee, whiskey, oak, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, toffee. This is a money whiskey barrel aged coffee imperial stout.
M % heavy mouthfeel. Alcohol present but subdued, actually its mostly just whiskey character from the barrels. Aftertaste is coffee, whiskey, toffee.
O @ this is probably better than kbs. Unfortunately I dropped the ball and didn't pick up any kbs online, then completely missed the local kbs release this year. So I have no basis for actual comparison. I remember this beer surprising me the last time i had it as well. It's a perfect 5 as far as im concerned. Now i just need to stock up on it wherever i can find it.

I've heard a lot about this beer. In particular as an alternative to BCBS. This is a phenomenal beer. Super thick, creamy, chocolate, coffee...dessert in a glass. I would say it is a lot less boozy/bourbon on the smell and taste than BCBS. The bourbon is way more subtle. I mention that for two reasons - if BCBS is too boozy, then this is the beer for you. If you want a bourbon bomb, then perhaps not (I still think you'll love it though). Love this beer; wish I bought more than one.
