On tap at the Detroit Fall Beer Fest. My wife got a pour so that I could have a full cup.
A: Deep, dark stout with reddish/brown head.
S: Wonderful bourbon tones with chocolate, roastiness taking a backseat.
T: Bourbon forward. Followed up by chocolate, roasted stouts notes. Perfect.
M: creamy. Smooth. Full-bodied. Appropriately carbonated.
O: Best at the beerfest. I understand the hype. Beats out the Blacknote.
Serving type: on-tap

2013 Vintage, 12 oz bottle
A - Pitch black, no lights getting through this bad boy
S - light bourbon notes on top of a roasted toffee aroma
T - The bourbon is there, but it's mild, but pleasant. Compiiments the other flavors well
M - Quite sticky, near perfect for this style
I enjoyed this beer quite a bit, but not quite the best barrel aged stout I've had. Definitely a worthy addition to the BA top 250, but not quite a top 25 beer in my opinion. But in the end, this beer is still excellent. Seek it out!
