Smooth and incredibly drinkable for 13%. Tremendous barrel character but integrated well with the base stout. So many big stouts like this are hot but this was not.

pours a deep dark brown /black color with a khaki head . Wonderful smell or roasted malts ,dark fruits and whiskey. Taste is superb on this smooth mellow whiskey integrated with chocolate, coffee vanilla and oak. mouth feel again superb so smooth and rich with the above flavors. This brew is one of the best BA Stouts ive tasted.

On tap at Bells. The TC stands for Traverse City. When this beer warms up a bit it is amazing. As served it was a good BA stout but at about 55F it has great vanilla notes, nice oak character and has a really smooth booziness. Asked if they were going o bottle this and nobody could confirm. Really good as is slightly warmed but in 6-12 months i am betting this would be amazing. Bells, please bottle this!

On tap at CBC 2016, day 2. Pitch black with a tall and very nice-looking espresso head. Chocolate and bourbon, caramel, vanilla, some coconut, perfectly balanced and super smooth.
