This for sure one of my favorite bourbon barrel aged stout. I think the honey is key here. Surprisingly almost no heat from the bourbon.

Caramel, cereal, lactose, whiskey, bourbon and chocolate. Amazingly balanced on the edge of sweetness with a little alcohol in the nose but none in the taste. If I were to guess this would be a 13%+ alcohol beer but is under 9%. Wonderful rolling complexity!

Surprisingly complex! Lots of vanilla and very smooth for a recent bottling! Great beer! I will search out more in hopes of cellaring some!
