Thanks to bstyle & benjaminahudson for the fact that I have (or had) two of these.
12oz. Bottle poured into a Huna snifter, 2012 vintage. Poured along-side a 2013 Kentucky Brunch Brand Stout and a 2013 KBS as part of a side-by-side tasting.
Appearance: Dark brown almost black with very little head that quickly dissipates to a small ring.
Smell: Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, bourbon, and a sweetness that is like black licorice. Very nice and complex mixture of aromas.
Taste: This is one complex beer, the black licorice and molasses flavors meld very well with the mocha flavors from the malt. Next, you can taste the vanilla and the bourbon, just and incredible diversity of flavor very rich and very, very, delicious. The alcohol is completely masked.
Mouthfeel: Very creamy and smooth yet clean on the palate.
Overall: An exceptional BA stout in every way, very happy I had the chance to try this one.
Serving type: bottle
