Tan head with black color.

Not sure if this is a Baltic Porter or an imperial stout, but it's nice.
Chocolate, dark fruit, caramel, fudge. Nice bourbon flavors. Sweet. Fudgy.

Full bodied. Ends with some sweetness.

Very nice beer. Loved trying it.

Dark bittersweet chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, oak and an umami flavor. Medium thickness. Long, dry finish. Not much barrel presence, but it's complimentary.

Bottle shared by Curran tonight.

Pours a dark oily black, with a small quarter inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like bourbon, molasses, chocolate, honey, and booze.

This is very, very sweet, but luckily very very tasty. The bourbon flavor brings to mind that idea of boozy molasses and honey, there's also a good amount of sweet syrupy chocolate and booze.

This is medium bodied, with a sweet, sugary, and syrupy mouthfeel, and a very low level of carbonation, making it a slow sipper.

Not the best barrel aged stout ever, but still tasty nonetheless.
