Reviewed from notes:
2013 bottle poured into a FW Teku on 7/4/14. Happy birthday America!
A: Dark black with ruby highlight when held up to the light. Not as pitch black as I expected. Small tan head recedes to nothing after about 30 seconds, per usual for a BA beer with this high of an ABV.
S: HUGE milk chocolate, caramel, and boozy bourbon notes. Hints of dark fruits and a slight alcohol burn close things out. Just a massive nose, the usual BA stout characteristics turned up to 11.
T: Syrupy sweet caramel and vanilla upfront. Pleasantly boozy bourbon and toasted raw cacao notes from the malt followed by a note of raisins. Extremely complex, but bordering on too sweet. Surprisingly limited alcohol character.
M: Thick and syrupy with low carbonation. Ridiculously mouth coating viscosity only adds to the decadence.
O: A ridiculously flavorful BA stout. Unbelievably pungent in every sensory aspect, but somehow manages to stay relatively balanced. Every bottle is a treat.

Review from memory, unfortunately. 2013 bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Got the bottle in a Reddit beer trade and split it with a friend. Served slightly cool, not sure of exact temperature.
A- Pours a very dark brown, which is much lighter and clearer than I expected. Pretty much no head.
S- Boozey nose, but that's expected. Rich and oakey.
T- Woahhh bourbon all the way through. Sweet vanilla and chocolate notes down to the burn from the booze. This beer is huge in every way. Almost a little spice character in there along with lots of dark fruits.
M- Thick and velvety, rather than aggressive. Light carbonation.
O- This beer was just a pleasure to drink.
