HUGE thanks to my boy ryanschwam for sending this retired gem my way!
A: poured vigorously into snifter. Pitch black, no head to be found, just an outer ring of foam/lacing around the glass.
S: notes of leather, heavy oak and tobacco, the slightest bit of oxidation and booze.
T: this thing still tastes like a million bucks for the age she has on her! Huge oak and tobacco/leather notes, chocolate/vanilla and noticeable, but super smooth bourbon. I couldn't be more impressed w/ the taste on this one.
M: on the low side, but works well here because the taste just cuts through everything. I'm so blown away by the flavor profile on this beer that everything else has become an afterthought.
O: an incredible treat that I thought I'd never get to experience. The highlight of this one for me, was the taste. A true sipper that's held it's own for the last 5 years and I couldn't be happier to have had the opportunity to enjoy it. Thanks again Ryan!

2011 bottle. Thanks Mikesgroove!
Appearance. Pours thick and black with a very thin orangy brown head that rises up after the pour and fades quickly to a faint ring.
Smell. Wow, much bourbon, so beer! Anyways, ya lots of bourbon, licorice and some dark chocolate, a bit of wood and vanilla.
Taste. Good amount of bourbon again, black licorice, some bakers chocolate in the finish followed by a little bit of bitter oak.
Mouthfeel. Full body, actually quite thick and a little bit sticky on the lips. Very low and smooth carbonation.
Overall. Not the best tasting beer but an enjoyable bourbon bomb. If I was a big bourbon fan this would probably kick more ass.

Sent by sholland119 as part of the Blind Beers BIF. I poured it into my New Belgium globe. A fairly rough pour begets hardly any head at all -- the black syrup coming out of the wrapped bottle gives up just a few tan bubbles.
Smooth cocoa, a hint of anise, some molasses, a little maple, some lactose, hints of hops both piney and earthy.
I can tell this is a powerful stout. Ethanol is the major flavor contributor, assaulting tongue, throat and nostrils with trip to the lips. Beneath the booze, some dark fruits (plums, prunes) can be detected along with dark chocolate, anise, toast and a smooth nuttiness. Earthy hops are here as well.
The body is as ginormous as I expect the alcohol content to be -- this stuff is thick as heavy cream. Carbonation is mild yet pinching. Alcohol is currently providing me way more warmth than is necessary on this balmy Arizona summer night.
A thick, powerful brew. If I had it again, I'd probably try to find at least two other people with whom I could split the bottle.

2011 vintage. 12 oz hand bottled by brewer poured into snifter.
Pours black with almost zero head and no lacing.
Huge bourbon notes, some vanilla, oxidation, dark fruits, tobacco
Semi sweet chocolate, bourbon, faint vanilla, very port like.
Good BA stout, but think its past its prime. Big port characteristics along with bourbon. Like to try and get a fresh bottle.
