Sampled from a 22oz bottle purchased at Triangle Wine in Morrisville, NC.

A - Deep black with a moderate head that dissipates quickly.

S - Bourbon, oak, dark chocolate and molasses.

T - The bourbon leads but doesn't dominate. It's joined by dark chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, coffee and a hint of sweetness. Good depth and complexity but not outstanding.

M - A little thin for the style. A moderate carbonation.

O - A good BA IS but given the price ($16-17 from what I've seen over several NC shops), it's just not worth it. By my calculation, this cost me almost 50% more than BCBS and it wasn't nearly as good. I think price should play a bigger role in reviews.
