Quick Take: It is a really easy-drinking bourbon coffee stout, but is that really enough for a beer held in such high regard? This seems like a high ABV barrel-aged stout for people that don’t like their stouts too strong or assertive. The aroma is so wonderful and promises such a fantastic beer, but the taste just doesn’t follow through on it. Given the overwhelmingly positive reaction to this beer, I feel like I need to have it again to either verify my thoughts on it or possibly develop a new take. The exclusivity and cost of this doesn’t seem to match the experience, at least for me. As it stands, it’s a good, not fantastic, beer, but one I would get again were it readily available.
