Poured into a snifter. Thanks, Dan Stein, for bringing this out from under the counter.

A: Oily black with cherry notes along the rim. No head. Light lacing.

S: Coffee swats you in the face with a bourbon/vanilla backbeat. A great olfactory sensation.

T: Overwhelmingly good. Even with a slow sip, this killer brew dominates with bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and a lower coffee taste than I was expecting. Like the perfect lover: slow, insistent, full of flavor and an assertiveness that knows no bounds. Alcohol heat rises with every taste. Let it warm for maximum enjoyment.

M: Medium with medium, chewy carbonation.

O: I'm in love. Should've picked up more. Chances like these are few and far between. A true work of art that measures up to the regular Bourbon County Brand Stout. Recommended, encouraged and yelled though a megaphone: "Damn! Seek and enjoy!"

2013 Vintage poured into snifter

A - dark black with traces of brown and deep red along the edges.

T - taste is almost perfect. Coffee, bourbon, vanilla and excellence. Simply incredible.

M - silky smooth

O - second time having a 2013 coffee and it is better than I remember it.
