Not as bad as I expected for a RIS. Some roast malt bitterness but under control. Sweet and almost chocolaty. Barrell influence not obvious.Earned the Verified Adventure (Level 47) badge! Earned the Heavy Weight (Level 8) badge!

Having had the Rocky Mountain version this lacks a little depth in comparison. However still a very good easy drinking (esp. for the abv) stout. Roasty, chocolate, nicely barrel aged.

Super duper stout from Hoppin’ Frog…It smells strong as hell, but drinks so much easier…there is sweetness, but it’s subtle in comparison to most barrel aged stouts. A pleasant bitterness smooths it all out.
