look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Ontap, pours a very dark brown with a reddish hue. The head is brown and overall it's a very good looking beer .
Smell : Inviting notes of bourbon and dark chocolate.
Taste: Drinks much like a barrel aged stout with malty cocoa and bourbon soaked barrel coming through nice. Roasted malt body with distinct oaky bourbon notes .
Feel : Full bodied, thick ale. Sticks with you.
Overall: No doubt about it, this is an awesome beer

Black brew pours a strong, large, dark tan head. Very firm, with impressive retention. Nice scattered lacing.

First notes from the aroma display strong woody barrel characteristics: vanilla; a slightly sour, slightly hot edge; and relatively mellow bourbon. Behind that is a nice malt profile of chocolate and roasted barley.

Flavor hits every box: chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, oak, roasted barley, dark fruit. It all mingles well together, with occasional highlights: chocolate and vanilla up front; fruit showing toward the end; oak and bourbon lasting through the finish.

Thick, thick stout! Impressively creamy and dare I say chewy. A little hot from the 12% ABV. Very lively. Long wet and hot bourbon finish. Brew thins the more I drink, but it's still very smooth.

This is a very good BBA stout. It isn't quite up there in BCBS/Parabola territory, although the appearance and mouthfeel are incredible for the style. It's a very good beer worth seeking out for a try.
