look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
2010 12oz bottle served chilled into a brooklyn snifter..
a-pitch black....tiny espresso colored head...did not last long at all..some espresso colored cheesecake swirl on top..a tight collar around the edges...
s-big bittersweet chocolate notes up front..the bourbon steps up before the oak and vanilla fade in...lots of coffee in the background and enough roast and graininess to make this a beer
t-lots of bitter coffee up front...the vanilla and oak make lots of head way before the bourbon rushes in...the hop sting is there enough to let you know its supporting this one...the bitter coffee follows suit and then some sweet chocolate...finishes on a bourbony oaky bitter dry note..
m-as thick as thick gets i think..at least in my experience...the lack of carbonation or very little presence of depending on how you look at it are perfect...the chewiness and oily mouthfeel are spot on...perfect imo
d-dangerous..the abv is so hidden except at the very end its scary....the taste and overall package make you want more the price tag makes this one special
overall again it lives up to the hype...i think this years is a better package than last..a little more refined kind of like backwoods bastard this year vs last...i dont know how founders will top this next year..top notch

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.
