  • Poured clear with one inch of tan foam. Not much retention as the foam quickly becomes just a film on top of the beer. Nice spider lacing.

    Aroma is complex and full of goodness. Alcohol/bourbon, sweet molasses, coffee, and a strong vanilla. Combination is candy for the nose.

    The taste starts off with some sweet malt, followed in the middle by bitterness of the roasted/chocolate malt, and finishes with small chocolate, creaminess, and alcohol/bourbon. Slight alcohol and coffee aftertaste.

    Medium carbonation and big mouthfeel combine with all the great flavors to form a smooth drinking brew.

    Heard a lot about this beer and it met and exceeded my expectations. Stout drinkers take note and get yourself some. Enjoy!
