Review from notes. Enjoyed 4/14/2012 from the bottle.
Appearance: Pours thick. Dark, dark brown – black. 1 finger of brown head.
Aroma: Layers. Strong chocolate with a bit of dark roast coffee and just a hint of maltiness
Taste: Dark chocolate, bitterness included. Interlaced in with dark, almost burnt, coffee. Hints of toffee. Caramel sweetness that lingers with the dark chocolate bitterness. Lingers on and on. There might be a touch of bourbon and vanilla if I look for it.
Mouthfeel: Smooth. Wet. Viscous, but not overly. Hints of small bubbles. The lingering sweetness makes me salivate.
Overall: Absolutely superb. The aroma and taste are incredibly well layered and balanced. Nothing overdone, but nothing left out. Thick and strong, but it doesn’t hurt the drinkability. Could have several before I knew what hit me.

Very excited to finally try this one.
Beer is jet black with a very small tan head which fades quickly.
Nose is very good. Contains coffee, bourbon, chocolate. Very nice blend of the scents, all well integrated. A bit of vanilla.
Taste is like the nose. Moderately bitter, tasting of both coffee and chocolate. The bourbon is quite present, providing some vanilla and a bit of sweetness that offsets the bitter. Roasted malt. Like the nose, the flavours are super integrated. The bourbon not as intense as expected, but quite present.
Full bodied, moderately carbonated. Some alcohol heat.
Overall, excellent stuff. An extremely well done BBA stout.
