Sweet chocolate, fireplace, and bourbon aromas.
Great, heavy mouth feel.
Bourbon finish.
Creamy like a milk stout should be, with a great blend of bourbon liquor taste.
Bottle has foil top, that makes individualistic sense to the bottle. Bottle describes flavors to be "dancing in an oak bath".
Fantastic beer!

This beer looks and smells incredible.
The bourbon flavor comes out first and is strong, which is a good thing IMHO. Doesn't quite taste as good as it smells, but I can live with that.
Not quite as thick as some of the stouts I've had, but again, I can live with it.
Overall a wonderful beer that I don't have to stand in line for, and can find year round. Cheers.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with tall, long lasting, creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, roasted malt, dark fruit, wood and coffee. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of bourbon, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, brown sugar, dark fruit and herbal hops. Finish is long and boozy, which I like. It will be my favorite RIS.
