Bourbon spice, semi-sweet chocolate, vanilla, and fudge greet the nose with oak and espresso beans playing supporting roles. Boasting flavors of cacao, chocolate macaroons, and molasses, the palate of this treat offers several types of vanilla muting any heavy roast character and adding even more body to the beer. Alcohol spice, wood tannins, and an herbal bitterness bring the imposing Stout into balance.
