A - Nice and dark. Almost black. Formed a nice head which dissipated after a bit. Minimal lacing in a snifter.
S - Vanilla and bourbon hit the nose first.
T - A nice, mellow bourbon shows itself first. Very good for the ABV. Finishes with a semi-sweet roasty chocolate.
M - Not too heavy, not too light. Definitely lingers around long after a taste.
O - Excellent BA stout. Excited to see how these mature.

On tap at Sam's Quick Stop, Durham NC, 10oz pour into a snifter
A- pours pitch black in color with with creamy dark-tan head that retains long after the pour, leaving some lace behind
S- big bourbon aroma up front which gives some vanilla and toasted oak aromas, chocolate on the finish
T- big shot of bourbon up front leaves no doubt that this one is barrel aged, oak barrel juice continues through to mid-palate, eventually giving way to a creamy dark chocolate flavor, that lasts into a sweet finish, with more bourbon on the linger
M- medium-heavy body, creamy and viscous mouthfeel, medium prickly carbonation and a pure velvety finish
O- a big bourbon presence from this one, at times the base beer seems to have a hard time matching up to the big bourbon flavors. This is definitely a bourbon lovers stout

Pours black as night with a non-existent head. Aroma is very sweet, almost like wine, with a little roasted malt coming through too. Taste is wildly complex, sweet chocolate, roasty, vanilla and dark fruit turning into a very smooth bourbon alcohol heat at the end. Body is medium, slightly creamy texture. Not much carbonation to be heard of.
