A - Big latte colored head, dark as night body, head is 3 fingers.

S - Beautiful dark fruits, that classic bourbon smell, some softness from the barrels, vanilla, mocha, coffee, dark chocolate.

T - The best tasting Bourbon Stout I've had. Wow, bourbon up front, the stout in the middle, ends with this mocha, coffee, vanilla goodness.

M - Heavy no way around this, it is however way more carbonated surprisingly.

O - This is one solid beer, and I'm glad I did not wait to crack this open. I am going to age another one. This is so damn good, I wish this was in a 4 pack. This easily is just as good as Bourbon County Stout and I just wish NC brewed this more. I'd pay to have this in my fridge at all times.

Not sure what north coast did this year, but this BA version is out of this world awesome. I don't give to many 5s, but this was really really nice....a perfect example of a great big bourbon stout...and not overpowering with alcohol or anything else...balanced very nicely. Lot of carbonation, nice notes of the barrel, very drinkable...all around A-plus!
