2011 vintage. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a deep dark oily black with a minimal amount of dark mocha head that dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma has lots of bourbon, some black licorice, with some chocolate and roasted malts mixed in. The taste is a better mix of the aroma notes than was to be expected. Even though the bourbon shines through on this heavy ABV beer, the chocolate/coconut/roasted malt notes really balance it out. The mouthfeel is thick bodied with decent carbonation, and a nice silky smooth quality.
Top notch stout from Goose Island, you have to be in the right mood for it though, because it will hit you hard if you're not ready.
