2010 vintage on-tap during Flying Saucer Raleigh's 11th Anniversary. Served in a tulip glass a deep opaque black with a thin light tan head that diminishes to a ring and leaves slight lacing on the glass. The aroma a nice amount of oak, roasted malts and vanilla. The taste is loads of vanilla and oak in front of roasted malts, cocoa, Bourbon and mild licorice, wonderfully complex. The beer is medium bodied with mild carbonation, very easy drinking for its high abv. This is certainly a wonderful beer, one that lives up to the hype and ages even better!
Serving type: on-tap

Aroma: roasty caramel and molasses. Slight roast barley. Coffee and whiskey are blended nicely, not too up front.
Appearance: black and opaque. Brown head that lingers well for high alcohol level.
Flavor: Slightly astringent whiskey and vanilla up front, mid palate is mostly bitterness, finishes with nice coffee roast bitterness on the sides of the tongue. Whiskey dominates a lot of the flavor notes. No DMS, no diacetyl.
Mouthfeel: Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation.
Overall: Great beer. Can only really drink one but it is really enjoyable. I think I prefer plain breakfast stout though, there is a lot of stuff going on here, a lot of similar bitterness from whiskey, coffee, and roast malt all at the same time.

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.
