One of my favouritr stouts by far. Impenetrable dark stout colour. Oak and vanilla bean one the nose. An upfront smokey oak hits the back of my tongue, with a caramel and vanilla note coming in after. Mild bitterness that compliments the taste very well. No overwhelming vanilla taste, which instead compliments the smoked taste. A terrific stout! 6pk for $10.99
Well worth the money. I've mildly aged one 8 or so months and it reduces the bitterness a bit, and helps to draw out the oak even more.

Good tasting stout. Not as thick of a taste/texture as other stouts but not so far as to me not buying again. Had a different label on mine, one with a chick in a barrel have a good time. Could be a older or newer style? Anyway, good beer!

Dark brown root beer color. Beautiful light brown, worn saddle-leather looking foamy head. Malty aroma. Picking up malty, notes of coffee, chocolate in the flavor / taste. Well-carbonated. Maybe even a little caramel in the smell.

Not a bad brew...3 out of 5. She pours dark with a tan head. Smells of oak and vanilla. Mouthfeel is smooth with a sharp charcoal bite in the aftertaste. Makes you want to sip it, enjoy it....spend some time with it. Not a bad beer at all

A decent stout. Maybe just a little watery, but still enjoyable.
