WOW you could chew this! So thick and creamy and full. Nose is all peanut butter and marshmallow in balance with the barrels notes to match. Fantastic very well balanced beer.

This beer pours dark. Like, really dark. Stains and sticks to the glass. No light shines through while pouring. I've painted rooms with thinner liquid.

Smells of super strong butterscotch. Like, unmistakable. It's actually a little sharper than I was hoping. I found myself wanting more deep, roasted coffee notes to offset the very strong, sharp peanut candy smell.

Flavor was more of the same. Tons of butterscotch, with a sweet finish. It's super thick and oily, but is frighteningly drinkable. You can understand the hype. This beer is special.

Thickest stout i've ever had, and i've had a lot of them.....nose and taste are all peanuts, roasty and flavorful...not getting much marshmallow, but haven't let it warm up yet.... Thankfully, a good balance of flavors, including bourbon and spicy rye, and not too sweet....

This was a weird one. The mouth feel and viscosity were awesome. The problem was the nose and flavor were both of burn peanuts. Very little marshmallow flavor.

Excellent, what a pour- all motor oil sludge it's aromas of peanut butter like I've never encountered in a beer, reminds me of Reboog Vitis on the nose. Thick as hell and creamy, mouthfeel is sludgy and everything you want in a big stout. abv is hidden and the barrel is nicely incorporated into the huge flavor. Excellent beer, can't wait to try more barrel aged stouts from these guys
