2016 ANTEAD.

Pours pitch black, completely impervious to light. Barely any head. Huge aroma of chocolate, bourbon barrel, bourbon, faint coconut and vanilla. Amazing. Thick and fudgy, it is just so good. Loads of milk chocolate, big notes of bourbon barrel, some vanilla and coconut, fantastic. Very thick and viscous, slick and coats the tongue. This is a world class beer that I hope to see again soon, worth seeking out!!

2017 release drank in a snifter on 6/2/2017

overall this is an excellent beer, especially for the trade value. its a semi-thick beer that has a very strong oaky bourbon barrel to it and the chocolate base in the stout here is just incredible. Great flavor profile and would love to have again

Loved this one ! Now I need to try and track down some of the adjuncts! Nice and thick with a nice smooth barrel, not too much heat! Nice chocolate notes.
