Pours a dark brown almost purple, head disappears quickly,
aroma is amazing, vanilla, figs, chocolate
the taste comes through leaving sweet caramel coffee notes on the back of the tongue that linger and present vanilla as it sits
as it warms it becomes less syrup and more buttery, has almost a barley wine character to it and at 15% the alcohol is very well hidden in the layer, presenting only a pleasant heat, not overwhelming
the mouth-feel is sticky and coats the mouth very well, it is much better than many BA stouts that I have had, i hope to get this one again.

Absolutely delicious. Great barrel flavors, dark fruit, just the right amount of sweetness, goes down incredibly smooth.

Tough to beat this as a sipper on a cold, rainy day.
