Pours an opaque dark brown with khaki colored head. Roasted malt, chocolate, oak, bourbon, and vanilla sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with bourbon and cocoa.

Dark with nearly no head, has an amazing roasted tasted that is smooth and easy to drink despite the high ABV. Highly recommend.

A-Black, cola lively.
S-Vanilla,oak,bourbon.
T-Roasted malts, vanilla, bourbon in the back end.
M-Light for a stout,thin, bit carbonated for a stout.
O-Good beer could improve, aged it a little bit longer and make it more creamy or smooth, don't mind the carbonation, feels more like porter!

Deep dark brown/ near black pour, creamy-looking tan head.
Smell is chocolate and bourbon barrel wood. No alcohol detected.
Taste is boozy, with loads of bourbon and a vanilla/ burnt licorice flavor.
Medium feel, smooth, slightly buttery. Dry finish.
Decent stout, looks and smells great, a bit much charry and burnt for my taste (I'd prefer sweeter).
Others may disagree, so I'd say give this a try if you see it and like double stouts.
