Was looking fwd to this one for awhile only to be super let down by the infected batch. I emailed green flash and was told reparations would be made to those who spent money on these infected bottles. I have yet to hear anything more from green flash. Will avoid buying their beers from now on.

I read the other reviews and so I took a chance and opened it up, thinking there's a possiblen drain pour. The smell of butterscotch is evident but there is a bourbon smell once you pour it. The taste is light bourbon goodness and a heavy dark chocolate, fudge notes since its a double stout. Yea, very fortunate to not have an infected beer but it's a solid beer.

(2015) Amazing nose, not as sweet and flavorful as most other bba stouts but nice nonetheless

Well, this was a major let down. Was one of the 2015 bottles. Right off the bat we all knew something was wrong. Smells like shitty butterscotch. Only goes down hill from here. Taste is cherry like and even shittier butterscotch. Huge let down for the almost $20 price tag.
