Pours a thick black chocolate with light carbonation. Aroma of vanilla beans and lactose. Taste is vanilla and milk. Great flavor. Goes down easy and clean.

= A fine barrel aged stout. Great drinkability. Good offering from new holland.

My only complaint is that it's 11% ABV. I wish it was weaker so I could drink more of it because it is delicious. A very dark, smooth, rich, bourbon barrel stout. Very slightly bitter finish, which, as a hater of hoppy bitterness, I really appreciate.

A: jet black color, almost like motor oil. Thin tan film for a head

S: bourbon, cola, molasses, dates, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and a subtle berry note. Bourbon and chocolate dominate the nose

T: cola, dark and milk chocolate, bourbon, oak, tannins, caramel, leather. Alcohol and oak at the end

M: heavier side of medium mouth, silky sticky mouthfeel. Low carbonation

O: barrel aged stout as advertised. The barrrel character is mellow, but noticeable. Nothing mind blowing, but has a nice harmonization - not too heavy on the barrel not too heavy on the sweet

Dark black color with light brown head. Coffee forward aroma. Rich coffee taste. Overall a smooth drinking experience. This beer is always a good solid choice.
