2011 vintage:

Big and black... thick dense khaki head that retains, laces and intimidates.

Loads of boozy bitter fudge, vanilla, some mushy dark fruits, faint cinnamon qualities, hardly any alcohol presence. Much, much more dynamic after a year in the cellar. What a pleasant surprise.

Super smooth. Milk chocolate works so well here, the barrel isn't obvious but it's apparent, chocolate cookies, finish is dryer than others of the style. Again, this beer has pulled a 180. Nice. (484 characters)

12 oz bottle

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. (257 characters)

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. (492 characters)

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. (490 characters)
