Thick like cough syrup. Cocoa and coffee. Leads bitter and finishes sweet. Very little/no alch bite. Lovely. One and done.

22oz bomber poured into Spiegelau tulip.
Release #42

This is a solid stout for the money. Coffee forward with chocolate and a notable hoppiness. The whiskey barreling is obvious, but doesn't lead to an overly boozy taste. Sticky consistency that hangs in the back of the throat. Overall, I wouldn't put B.B.B. among the best, but rather one of the better B.A. stouts you're going to find for $$.
