one of my fav BB stouts available as a year-round. creamy, chocolate, bourbon with vanilla blended very well.
tried 2014
and 2015 vintage
subtle difference, the alcohol is more hidden. smoother chocolate, more roasted malts coming out in the aged bottle.
gotta try if you haven't. lives up to the hype.
dynamic &complex full-bodied stout. yum.

Fantastic stout. Unlike other stouts I've had this one has some more complex flavoring and feel to it.
It has a chocolate taste, and a subtle vanilla undertone with bourbon flavors that bring down the bitterness of that chocolate taste and make for an enjoyable stout beer.

Been a long time coming for this beer. Here goes:

A: Splendid. Large head and a ton of lacing. Pours pitch black as well.

S: Very, very bourbony. I'd wager that this beer is one of the most alcoholic, bourbony beers that I've ever smelled. Tons of oak and vanilla. Good, but the overwhelmingness of the alcoholic bourbon masks the stout scent somewhat.

T: Very sweet and bourbony. Lots of oak and vanilla. Also a sufficient dark chocolate taste (more apparent in the taste than in the smell). Good.

F: Little light for 11.0 alcohol. Still good, though.

O: Good beer. Would have again. I still think Bourbon County is much better.

12oz bottle poured into my mouth.
1/2 way through this bad-boy. It's a lot smoother than I expected. Although, it does have a bite on the back end, but a very pleasant bite! The oak and vanilla notes keep lingering until the next drink! It's also not too strong on the bourbon taste, which is a plus for me. I like hints of it, not a "BAM, IN YOUR ASS" bourbon taste. Very solid stout in my book.I would recommend to any stout drinker!

Tried this out one night with my wife. Very surprised. First taste strong bourbon flavor. You can taste the bourbon through out and it really grows on you. Great beer to share after a good meal around the camp fire!
