HIJINX BARREL AGED STEAL YOUR FACE STOUT (HEAVEN HILL BOURBON)

Lovely barrel-aged version of rich stout relays expansive bourbon mocha milkshake creaminess to peaty Scotch whiskey boozing. Seeped in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for 14 months, opulent black chocolate syruping picks up chewy anise spicing and bittersweet vanilla beaning almost immediately. Ancillary black cherry, raspberry and red grape tartness turns vinous while cozy cola-hazelnut sway stays way beneath the caramelized chocolate bourbon heap.
