4.31/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle:

Reminds me of KBS, but with a bit less of the thick chocolate taste and the bourbon is hidden further. Very balanced throughout with a touch of dark chocolate bitterness. Should be even better in 6 months to a year. Bought 1.5 cases of this stuff before it disappears.

Draft (Growler):

As compared to the bottle, a bit less bitter and more robust of a lightly candied dark chocolate flavor. Seems less viscous, making it easier to drink more quickly, but it is a bit more carbonated than the bottle. Definitely a treat, but I actually think the bottle might be my preference. Would love to try a keg after a year or so.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pitch black, head is minimal and the color of cardboard.

S - A lot of chocolate, hints of coffee and charred oak.

T - Malts, barley and bourbon barrel aging are nicely balanced.

M - Slightly creamy, little carbonation. Lingering chocolate finish.

O - Nicely done, smooth and easy-drinking stout. This beer will definitely get better with age.

12oz bottle into a snifter

A: Pours pitch black with one finger of dense tan foam. Retention is good, lacing is very good.

S: Oatmeal, milk chocolate, and toffee mix in almost equal amounts in this beer. I also get some dark chocolate, but there is certainly not a bitter quality to it. Bourbon is way in the background, but seems to round out the flavors quite nicely.

T: Oatmeal and chocolate take center stage here. It really reminds me of an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Toffee is still there adding to the sweetness, but there is certainly more bitterness and less sweetness than I got in the aroma. The chocolate comes out as more of a mixture of milk and dark chocolate here, though I'm sure much of this is perception due to the bitterness. Fairly boozy.

M: Medium thickness for the style with very creamy carbonation.

O: Impressive. This is not over the top, not overly complex, but is well balanced and well put together. I could use a bit more malt complexity, but I really like this.
