Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a slick black with very slight brown head that disappeared instantly. Smell is sweet bourbon, boozy, vanilla, and dark cherries. Taste follows the smell closely. Tasted is sweet, with vanilla and dark cherry. Finishes with a subtle sweet vanilla bourbon. Slight alcohol present on the backend, but not harsh at all. The mouthfeel is slightly thin for my liking, but has a nice tingle with the booze on the backend. Overall, I enjoyed this a lot, even though it is not my favorite BBA stout. It is a pleasant sipper and I recommend trying this one. I did enjoy Wulver a tad bit more.

On tap at a local C-Bus joint. Finger of off-white head over a deep, rich dark brown body. V. nice looker (just like my date!). Whiskey, whiskey, whiskey on the nose. I hope that you like whiskey. Same song as far as the flavors go... with just a hint of dark fruit emerging from the whiskey river towards the end as it warmed. Good carbonation (surprisingly), and a nice smooth mouthfeel. Perfect feel for a BBS. Well, I hope that you are ready for a whiskey punch in the face. It could use some time to mellow, and I am sure that this is much better with a little age on it. It was ok... but I wouldn't push my grandmother out of the way to get one. I am now becoming convinced that I enjoy BB-aged beers much more from a bottle, with at least a year under their belts... on tap may be too fresh, and too whiskey for my personal liking. I would like to give the standard Siberian Night a go some time... I am sure it is quite good.
