I wish I could get a few more of those.
This may not get a 5 out of 5 but it certainly is a 4.8 just because their Barrel Aged is better yet.
Almost black with a nice tan head. Good head retention with lacing running beautifully around the glass. Say this beer is “Awesome” doesn’t do justice.
Tons of Malt, spices, molasses and a marvelous gingerbread aroma. I get some fig or prunes as well
TA ted sweet and you get the baked gingerbread right away. On tip of that you get cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and spices. Hint of coffee as it gets warm. Very little bitterness to the finish, and a good hop balance to the flavor an a great sweetness that works well for this Stout.
Full bodied and little carbonation really easy to drink. My only criticism is that I would like to be more chewy or thicker.
This Hardywood Reserve Series was a home run.
