500ml corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter, cooled in the fridge for about an hour before opening.

A- Pours black with a good two fingers worth of khaki head that slowly fades, leaving some froth along the sides. Lacing is also noted along the sides of the glass. Lots of head for a BA Stout.

S- Coffee, chocolate, roastiness, and booze on the smell. The bourbon is very apparent in the smell for me.

T- Roasty malts with notes of coffee up front. Then comes some chocolate before the bourbon settles in. Each sip leaves a nice alcohol warming sensation.

M- Heavy, alcohol-forward, roasty, a great sipping beer.

This is one of those beers that I would always see on the shelf sitting for awhile but passed for something else. I'm happy I grabbed one because it is a well-done BA Stout. Great sipper. I'm sitting here drinking it in the summer but this would be really nice to sip on in the cold weather months.
