Svelte euro stout body, sweet, dark fruit, bitter. Faint hints of the advertised barrel aging.

Brian B. is drinking a Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) (2016) 11.9% by Founders Brewing Co.

Surprised how much I still love this old school BA stout. Great coffee / cocoa aroma, underneath it is almost more of a brown ale than stout

Kuhnhenn Brewing Company by Solstice Stout

'14. Improved as I drank. Poured muddy brown. First taste great bourbon & cocoa flavor, but odd tartness. Very sweet. Rather BADL-like.

Hill Farmstead Brewery by Birth of Tragedy (2013)

Brian B. is drinking a Birth of Tragedy (2013) by Hill Farmstead Brewery

Never had BoT before. Expected a roast bomb (e.g. Everett) but that was quite restrained. Almost more of a barleywine. Sweet!

Hangar 24 Craft Brewery by Pugachev Black Maple (2015)

Brian B. is drinking a Pugachev Black Maple (2015) by Hangar 24 Craft Brewery

I feel like underneath it all is a great base beer...but the weird burnt garlic, mint toothpaste, candle wax aroma / flavor dominates. Ugh.

Voodoo Brewing Company by Grande Negro Voodoo Papi (Aged In Bourbon Barrels) [Batch 2]

Brian B. is drinking a Grande Negro Voodoo Papi (Aged In Bourbon Barrels) [Batch 2] by Voodoo Brewing Company

God tier nose. The taste... crazy intensely spicy, not enough sweetness or richness to balance. Hurts the mouth. Why the hype???

Abnormal Beer Co by Quinquenio

Brian B. is drinking a Quinquenio by Abnormal Beer Co

Huge cinnamon. Solid cocoa. Nice vanilla. Stickiness tempered by a bit of roast and tannin. One of the best non-BA stouts I've ever tasted.
