I sampled a 12 oz bottle of this beer poured into a snifter at cellar temperature. The beer pours a dark cola brown with minimal tan head foaming up and fading quickly to nothing.
Aroma is dark brown sugar and molasses, some burnt coffee and a little vanilla and bourbon. The nose is not overpowering but is enjoyable.
First sip reveals a thick body with mild rolling carbonation. The beer exhibits a rich hearty texture.
Flavor is all malt with molasses and coffee grounds mixing with roast malt and some lingering bourbon on the finish.
I dont really get much from the booze or any hops to speak of in this beer.
There is a bit of stickiness on my lips and palate after each swallow and the roasted malt lingers too.
I enjoy this beer and find it highly drinkable. I would buy it again if I found a bottle.

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.
