A- Pours extremely dark with an even tan head with mild carbonation. Â Smells pleasntly sweet with a slight hint of roastyness, can't really smell any hops.
T- Â This truly is a massive and complex beer just like the bottle says. Â The sweet vanilla character is prominent immediately.The product of being aged in bourbon barrels, it tickles your pallet, enticing you for more. Â The sweetness is subdued by a well rounded but subtle roasty flavor. Â Each sip is finished and mellowed by a lingering bitterness to give a hint at it's 75 IBU's. Â All three flavors come together to create an extremely complex, rich, yet drinkable stout.
O- Â Another hit from Great Divide! Â It is unlike any other stout I have ever had. Â I love the deep roasty flavor and the lingering bitterness from an intense amount of hopping. Â But the true selling point is the subdued, sweetness attributed to the oak aging. Definitely try this beer, cuddled up next to a loved one by Â a roaring fire if at al possible.
