Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94. Served in a mini snifter. Pours very dark brown with a thin mocha head that recedes fairly quickly into a thin collar. The nose brings a good amount of oak alongside bourbon and some backing vanilla. Touch of coffee remains along with some chocolate and roast. Flavor is heavy toward the bourbon, and specifically the oak barrel. Background stout is nice, though I think I prefer the base beer. Body is medium and a bit tannic. Not much booze. Pretty good, though not great.

Thanks to Tom10101 something like that.

Hand delivered from the great country of Canada

Appearance. Pours a murky black with a nice 2 inch tan head.

Smell. Dark, booze and some coffee

Taste. Roasted coffee and a sour twang to it? Smooth for a 9+ ABV beer

Mouthfeel. low carbonation and rather thin more flavor comes out as it warms.

Overall. A very nice BBA stout from Canada

Prefer the non BA version though.

Extremely smooth, bringing out coffee and bourbon. Black and lacey, coffee without sugar bitterness all the way through. Coconut, chocolate and vanilla. A sipper. Not noticeably boozy. Understated carbonated. Tastes as if aged a couple of years or more.

Received in a trade with a generous BA from up north thanks!

Appearance: Pours black as night, opaque, with a 2 finger light brown crown that shows some retention and nice lace.

Smell: From greatest to least = Roast malt (a touch black patent ashy, although it could be from the coffee roast), Vanilla cream, coffee, and bourbon. Think iced coffee with a dash of ashtray and trace of bourbon.

Taste: Vanilla cream and ashtray.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but it vacillates btw creamy and watery at times...weird!

Overall: This was probably a very good beer 1-2 years ago. I'm late to the game on this one.
