I gotta say that this beer is one of the best crafts to come out. Its slightly too bitter but I have found that only to be the case with bottles. The drafts are not as bitter so to start out trying it I would go with a draft.

Very nice stout that lives up to its high expectations. Nice deep dark black color, some tan head and a little spotty lingering lacing. Smells of bourbon, wood, vanilla and a little chocolate. Tastes similarly, along with some mild coffee, caramel and malt. Slightly boozy but really quite well balanced and alcohol isn’t that forward. Smooth, slightly creamy and soft mild mouthfeel. Good carbonation and the flavors really mellowed as the beer warmed. Outstanding beer!

I really wanted to like this beer. It is a very complex beer, however it is too astringent (bitter) and I could never overcome this barrier to the other flavors in the beer.
I have another bottle, and will give it some time and come back to it as it might be a pallet issue.
