12 oz bottle (repeated in Nov. 2015).

Flavor: Has a very rich flavor with good use of barrel aging. Slightly smokey but no burnt qualities. Excellent balance.

Feel: Medium-full body with appropriate carbonation.

O: Given no expectations, a pleasant surprise. Highly recommended.

Pours pitch black with a tiny head that fades fast. Seemingly no lacing.

Rich vanilla, bourbon, toffee, bit of chocolate sweetness on the nose. super sweet and delicious smelling.

Woody, chocolatey up front. Bourbon in the middle with a slightly bitter coffee on the tail end. Very nice spiciness is in there as well.

Thick and silky smooth. Coats the mouth. Very slight warming from the alcohol.

This is a worthwhile stout. The BB aging definitely comes through and rounds it out nicely.

Single bottle, 55F from a 4 pack, purchased form the bar at ABW. Served in a St. bernardus chalice.

A- Very nice thick black color with two fingers of tan head
S- Sweet and pleasant- very few imperfections
T- Rich chocolate, heavy bourbon, roasted dark coffee. Definately bitter sweet.
M- Luxiorious and creamy, a little thinner than I prefer.
O- A very solid brew from brew works- a little overwhelming on so many strong "flavors" and it detracts from the malt/roast profile of the stout.
