Deep brown, near black colour with a ring of mocha coloured head, no lace th speak of. Smell is of oak, vanilla and whisky followed by a big dose of chocolate cake and fudge, coffee and a medium roast. Taste is roasty with oak and bourbon/whisky flavours, vanilla and chocolate with a bit of coffee, lightly fudgey in the aftertaste. Light prickly carbonation, smooth and full bodied. Really solid stuff however with so many incredible BA stouts around this may just get lost in the shuffle, however I would certainly drink this again without question.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. White cap.

Appearance: Pours a jet black and leaves a quarter finger or so of dark tan head.

Smell: Bourbon, dark chocolate, light coffee, some dark fruits: plum, figs. Well balanced stout aromas. Definitely smells tasty.

Taste: The coffee, which played a minor role in the aroma, takes a more prominent role in the taste. Plenty of bourbon, dark chocolate, plums, figs are also present. Plenty of oak notes are present in the latter half of the taste as well. Finishes nice and crisp with some bourbon and coffee. Alcohol is very well masked in the array of flavors.

Mouth-feel: Low to medium carbonation (more carbonation is present than I would have thought from the pour). Medium to heavy body with a nice creamy texture. Finishes smooth.

Overall: A high quality stout. Plenty of oak as well as bourbon notes are present from the time in the barrels. A very nice array of flavors, a nice, creamy texture and a pleasant aroma to boot. Definitely a quality beer drinking experience.
