Awesome. Been looking for years and finally found. Maybe the buildup was too much but although really good, not what I had built it out to be. Really Strong which is perfect. And great flavor. I?d get it again as long as it didn?t cost me as much. profile - July 21, 2019
From a bottle. 2019 vintage. Thick as they come and slick mouthfeel. All the flavors in my mind were more subtle than expected but still very good. Have to agree with someone who said not really a Russian Stout though.

Strong bourbon overtones. Sweet. Many flavors to taste in it. Take your time. Enjoy. As many have noted, it's a sipping beer. Delicious.

Got the 2018 at the brewery and it?s fucking fantastic. Sweet boozy bliss. Also had 2020 during pandemic.

2018 is very rich, burbon forward and thick enough to be a sipping stout. Similar in flavor profile to Karbach BBH Stout

2017 a bit too thin compared to previous years. All a 5 or slightly under but 2017 a 4.5 at best. 2012 is by far the best vintage. profile - June 14, 2017
2013 vintage was awesome. 2017 vintage much to heavy on the bourbon. Still tasty...but not awesome.

Boozy nose. Rich with dates and chocolate notes. Similar in flavor to KBS to me

I aged 2014 for 3 years in my cellar. SUPER SMOOTH AND GREAT MOUTH FEEL!
