A: Pours black with a one finger khaki colored head that drops fairly quickly. The liquid it leaves behind is thick and menacing. I like.

S: A good amount of bourbon in here, coupled with a ton of dark, rich espresso. Vanilla, toffee, caramel, oak laced with bourbon that almost stings the nostrils, charred wood and tobacco. Get in me.

T: Damn. I've been waiting a long time to finally try the BA IRS and Stone busts this out alongside it? Holy moly. Bourbon upfront with a nice hint of burnt caramel and brown sugar. A ton of espresso in the middle laced with a nice dash of pure bourbon. Finish brings some charred wood, burnt espresso, burnt brownies and some fudge. Dry, roasty and absolutely loaded with espresso on the finish. Crazy that there would be this much espresso left after a year in the barrel. A fantastic beer.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep black body. Nearly inky. Small khaki head. Thin collar and a few wisps.

Smell - The coffee is very rich. Bourbon. Less intense oak than Fyodor's. Fudgy chocolate.

Taste - Sweet fudge. Rich coffee blends in. Bourbon. Dries out as the barrel sets in. Very oaky. Oak and bitter chocolate linger.

Mouthfeel - Thick. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The coffee smooths out the rough spots of Fyodor's.
