Fresh, clean aroma with hints of dark malt, but not overly sweet like stout aromas can sometimes be. Taste starts very smooth, then surges in with malt taste complexity and light crisp hop support, then fades to a fresh, dry dark malt flavor. Finishes with a clean palate, but lingering memories of all the taste complexity that was hiding in the last sip.
Thick dark malt aroma. Full flavor of dark malt, but with a crispness to it instead of a sweetness. Flavorful dance of hops and dark malt, never wore sure which one is taking lead. His contribute a nice clean bitterness, not fruity at all. Very inspiring.
Canned on 10/11/2021, tasted on 1/15/2022. Aroma is slightly sharp and dry, almost like roasted peanut shells. Interesting complex flavor balancing a sweet, dark, 10% ABV Stout, and a complex nutty taste.
Maybe a bit too much alcohol heat and peanut flavor for my palate.
Nice even smell of dark malts, but not sweet. Clean crisp taste, that spreads out across the palate smoothly delivering waves of dark malts. Hops remain in background just to cut off any lingering malt flavors. Very clean and drinkable.
Nice clean aroma with a hint of raspberries. Slight edge of bourbon flavor that gets replaced by dark malt, and then a nice raspberry flavor comes in. Overall very balanced 3-way tug-of-war going on between bourbon, dark malt, and raspberries. You can feel the alcohol heart in the aftertaste, slightly lingering in the back of the throat. I think I would like it more of there were less bourbon presence, and it was just the dark malt and raspberries commingling.
Slightly fruity strawberry aroma plus dark malt. Flavor is strong with dark malt but a hint of strawberry in the background and leaves you with a creamy/foamy mouthfeel at the end. Interesting, but maybe a little too sweet at the end.
