Picked this up in a trade with Cisco! Dark brown, nearly black pour with a one finger caramel-colored head that fades quickly with decent lacing. Big boozey bourbon nose with hints of vanilla, molasses, dark chocolate, cocoa, and espresso. The taste follows suit with the bourbon once again the star. Lots of molasses along with hints of chocolate fudge, cocoa, toffee, espresso, oak, and vanilla. The mouthfeel is slightly thick and mouth-coating with perfect carbonation and a velvety smooth, subtly sweet finish. Overall, this is right up there with my favorite barrel aged stouts. Bold and flavorful and incredibly drinkable for such a big beer. Highly recommended!

My father picked this beer up in Dallas on a trip from work and brought back a few to share with me. The aroma is something that I could smell all day. Seriously, they should make a candle. The taste is incredibly smooth and complex. Every sip I pick up on different flavors. Overall, one of the best beers I've ever had. Highly recommended if you can get your hands on a bottle.
