Just like lebron, pretty good but way overpriced. Save your money and buy some bourbon county

Look: Opaque black with a half finger mocha head. Mild activity. Poured thick and black. Smell: Rich on roasted coffee, dark chocolate, warm vanilla, dark cherries, more dark chocolate and a big fruity oak finish. Bourbon is a little sharp but overall smells great.

Taste: Big refreshing coffee notes like the expensive kind that has hints of pitted fruits and slightly nutty, followed by a rich sweet warming vanilla, then back to the coffee only this time a bit more bitter that gives way to rich dark chocolate and a unmissable bourbon soaked oak that is fantastic. Tasty.

Mouthfeel: Rich and thick. Sits like motor oil on the palate and finishes wet unlike most BA beers I have had.

Overall: An outstanding barrel aged stout from hoppin frog I tried the B.O.R.I.S. at the brewery and couldn't wait to try the BA version and sure enough they had it. I'm just glad I had the insight to pick up two! Love the big coffee and pitted fruits and how it meshes with the warm vanilla. The wet finishes is also really nice because I hate it when a BA beer dries out super fast so it can't linger on the palate. There could maybe me more oak but I still love this beer and that's a minor grip. Definitely a must try when in ohio!
