Recently acquired bottle of release #22, poured into a FW snifter. I have had other releases in years past in both bottles and on tap.

A: Pours the jet black as most BA stouts do but with dark brown/red when light passes through. Almost no head, and what little head dissipates rapidly.

S: Strong on the coffee and alcohol, very rich aromas and very pleasant though a little heavy on the alcohol.

T: I picked up the bottle from a fridge and let it warm up for about an hour, but it still felt pretty cold (40-45F probably) when I first had some and it smacks in the face with hot alcohol, very prominent whiskey after taste. Some of the earthy flavors of coffee and chocolate feel overwhelmed with alcohol. As it warmed up to 60F or so it was still too strong on the alcohol.

M: Too thin and floaty. It did not feel like a barrel aged stout, more like a porter.

O: I was kind of disappointed with release #22, I have had other releases (though I dont remember which ones) and I have remembered a thicker mouthfeel with no as prominent alcohol/whiskey.
