Pours a solid black with pretty modest fizzing, no lacing. Lots of yogurty lactose on the nose, and flavors that land somewhere between a latte and cookies and cream. The bourbon barrel is not very assertive but does show up early on in a sip.

Pours black with some mahogany brown colors on the edges and a body that props up a sizzling dark tan head. The nose is bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of coffee in that order. Zoinkers (that’s a 1960’s “Batman the TV show”reference for you youngsters out there in TV land).

That bourbon flavor is up front on the taste, too, which normally isn’t my preference in these big stouts (I like it on the finish), but it really works here, because it slides into the chocolate and vanilla and allows those flavors to shine before the subtle coffee flavor finishes things nicely.

The mouthfeel is full and on point - there is never a doubt that you’re drinking a big, substantial stout.

All the while I was drinking this, I was thinking, “I need a handful of Mrs O’s homemade chocolate chip cookies to enjoy with this bad boy.” That would be the perfect complement to this excellent beer.

T - The taste is huge milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla and bourbon.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft dry finish.
