A motor oil like black with a khaki colored head. Smells very strongly of slightly burned brown sugar, wood, and bourbon. Taste like cocoa powder, chocolate, expresso beans, bourbon, oak,brown sugar, and dark roasted malt. The bourbon really powers through, especially in the aftertaste. Almost has a rum like burn. It also finishes pretty bitter. This is an outstanding beer. I would say world class if the heat/burn from the bourbon didn't overpower the flavor on the back end quite as much. And I am a bourbon person. Not sure who's barrels were used, but that could be a factor. A sipper for sure.

Side-by-side with '13 BCBS.

A- Black with a medium level, light tan head. Reflective like oil.

S- Scotch and oak. Lots of barrel in this one.

T- Roasted marshmallow, brown sugar, medium-range bourbon, and I get a bit of a coconut flavor with this as well. I've heard a few people describe this beer as a "barrel-aged S'more," and I think that's actually pretty accurate for those familiar with BA stouts.

M- Typical alcohol warmth, not too heavy and not too light. If it was cold out, the mouthfeel of this beer would really seal the deal.

O- Love this beer... much better out of a bottle than on tap in my opinion, for whatever reason. This wins my side-by-side against BCBS by a couple points. Cheers!
