Acquired via trade. Very excited.
A. Poured black, with some dark amber tint around the edges, with a 2 finger slightly amber head. fine bubbles. Head retreats to a film and rim. Low viscosity.
S. Moderate fragrance. Starts off with major notes of bourbon and dark roasted malts. Minor notes of vanilla, toffee, oak, dust, and marshmallow.
T. Starts off very similar to the nose with dark roasted malts, bourbon-soaked oak, some hops, and caramel. Minor notes of marshmallow, toffee, nuts, and a moderate booze that builds as it opens.
M. Kind of thin - not necessarily a bad thing.
O. This beer lives up to the reputation and is certainly worth the hype and rating. One can defiantly tell this has aged 12 months. This is not my favorite BA stout, but is certainly up there.
