500ml bottle into Duvel tulip.

A: Pours an extremely dark woody brown color, near black, with two fingers of dense, soft-looking, light brown head. Head took its time fading into a faint collar which left spotty lacing down the glass.
S: Rich notes of bourbon, spice, chocolate, and roast come through. I get scents of toasted marshmallows, wood and vanilla as well. Bourbon is strong yet mellow and smooth smelling.
T: Extremely potent and rich flavors bourbon, chocolate fudge, chocolate ice-cream, caramel, candied dates, roasted and toasted malts, and vanilla. The finish is full of sweet bourbon and vanilla, and the aftertaste is roasted, chocolaty, and lingering.
M: Full body, smooth and decadent mouthfeel. No trace of alcohol heat whatsoever, but the bourbon lends some great flavor. There a solid bitterness to the brew as well, not unlike the original version. Rich over, with soft and even carbonation.
O: One of the most underrated bbl aged stouts is back again and it does not disappoint. Potent and rich, this is a great sipping beer.
