Pours a pitch black with minimal head and lacing. Very thick and viscous.
On the nose is bourbon and dark fruits. Lots of oak. Some hints of vanilla as well. Maybe a bit of bitter coffee and some bittersweet chocolate.
Taste is bitter chocolate and bourbon. Being that the beer is almost three years old I think it may have given the bourbon time to die down, which I like. Some beers really overdo the bourbon. No real alcohol presence either but it's still a sipper. Dark fruits begin to come through in the middle as well as the oak. Very complex as the coffee hits towards the finish.
Mouthfeel is big and chewy. Very rich. Not as thick as BCBS but thicker than KBS.
Very very good BA stout. Would drink again for sure. Curious to see how it tastes fresh.
