A big thanks to Jeremy6566 for sending me this Big Bad bomber! Release#9 poured into my Deschutes tulip glass.
A - Pours almost black, with 1 finger of mocha colored head. It fades leaving a ring of brown lace.
S - The smell is amazing on this one! Coffee initally, but as I inhale deeper, I'm getting the bourbon, followed by some chocolate and coconut.
T/M - Wow, there's a lot going on in the taste. Starts out with a big wave of coffee and bourbon. After the initial burst of coffee and bourbon comes the chocolate and coconut. A nice blend of all the flavors. The coffee and bourbon really take center stage, but then the chocolate comes and really rounds out the flavors. It is a little boozy, but at 11.8% that's to be expected. Full mouthfeel, perfect carbonation
O - Hands down one of the best BBA stouts I've ever had. All the flavors are on point, nothing too over powering. Alcohol is there, but very subdued. Excellent brew, and again, a big thanks to Jeremy6566 for this amazing brew!

Bottle pour at the Ithaca Luminous release.
Pours a thick, dark opaque black, with a mocha head of about one inches. Small little globs of lacing on the glass.
Smells include roasted malt, chocolate, and some vanilla.
The taste is similar. I think this is bourbon or whiskey barrel aged, but I'm not really picking that up. Lots of chocolate, vanilla, and some oakiness, molasses, Hershey's syrup, etc. Great taste, but a little subdued, I think. Still quite good.
Medium to full bodied, low carbonation, creamy, thick mouthfeel.
Another great stout today. This is turning out to be one of the best beer days I've ever had.
