Bottle into Snifter vintage 2012. Thanks to DovaliHops for the bottle from a recent trade.
A: pours brown from bottle and appears midnight black in the glass. Medium density head 1-finger of light cream color. Head dissipates to a thin ring hugging the border of beer and glass with small spots of lacing.
S: malt, milk chocolate, bourbon, wood, vanilla.
T: smooth milk chocolate, whiskey, sweet cherries, vanilla, oak
M: thick with a smooth and oily texture, mild carbonation. For the style, it's exactly what I want.
O: what a big beer. I secured this on the back end of working on a trade and it is fantastic. I will actively seek this out again soon and would recommend it highly.
Note: I would have given both the taste and overall a 4.75

Poured from 22 oz bomber into tulip glass. 2014 vintage.
A: At first glance, this is pitch black with absolutely no light penetrator. On closer examination, I swear there is a bit of deep mahogany brown lurking. One finger mocha colored head that settled quickly to a thin ring leaving very little lacing.
S: A wonderful bouquet of sweet bourbon, fresh picked cherries, vanilla, and good chocolate. Maybe a little hint of coconut and espresso.
T: Lots of bourbon bursts on the tongue from the first sip. Dark chocolate, roasted malts, espresso, and vanilla. The flavors remind me quite a bit of BCBS.
M: Full body coating the tongue nicely. Just a little alcohol burn at the end but not unexpected considering the 14% ABV.
O: Completely and utterly fantastic stout. One of my top three for sure. I really wish this was available in 12 oz bottles and distributed in my area.
