So this is my go-to stout. i must say that it may just be me but the later/current versions taste a bit sweeter than the original (but that may just be me). Anyway-don't be scared at the high 4 bottle price as it's well worth it (pairs great with a thick cut grilled T-Bone BTW). If your local craft pub has this on draft - even better. I actually had it on nitro once and well...long strange trip/story there...be careful as this dragons tail will leg sweep you before you know it - enjoy!

A: Nearly black, dark brown when held to the light. Small, white creamy head which quickly bubbled away.

S: Very subdued, roasted malt, chocolate, where's the vanilla and bourbon?

T: Creamy chocolate, vanilla and warming bourbon! There it is! Very well balanced.

M: medium thick, creamy

A little lacking in the smell department, but well balanced and a good value. Probably one that will go into the regular rotation.
