Notes: Guardian of the State is our second Premium Reserve member-exclusive release, and a variation of Ward of the State. This version was aged in our highest quality rye whiskey barrels before being bombarded with vanilla to bring it to the next level of stout perfection, highlighted by notes of spice, oak, vanilla, chocolate, and coffee.

4.55/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Near black with a fizzy light brown head dissipating quickly.

Nose: strong vanilla presence leads. Healthy dose of espresso and rye whiskey as well. Very strong aroma - hits you as soon as the bottle is cracked.

Taste: Follows the nose. Vanilla leads, coffee presence is even stronger than the nose along with a rich dark chocolate character. Finishes with rye whiskey. Little to no alcohol presence. Exceptional.

Feel: Medium-light body, very smooth. Fine carbonation.
