4.75/5 rDev +3.3%
Yellow wax. Served alongside Mornin' Delight and KBBS.
The beer is near black with an oily beige head. Whiskey aroma with vanilla, oak, chocolate. Again, absolutely amazing. Big whiskey character with a lovely coffee presence. Full bodied with oak and vanilla. Palate coating. My second favorite of the trio. Fabulous!

2013 Vintage-Yellow Wax
A: Pours a midnight black and settled with a small mocha head. Nice lacing that covered the outside of the snifter
S: Dark Fruits: Figs and raisins. Coffee and roastiness
T: Fig, plum, raisin, coffee and chocolate. Barrel really brings out vanilla sweetness.
M: Chewy chocolate. Exactly how a BA Stout should feel. One of the best representations of the style
O: Almost exactly what I was expecting from this beer. Thick, dark, roasty and chocolatey. Very gracious of BeersAndBears to share.
Re-Review 2014 Vintage-Gold Wax
A: The most midnight of blacks. Using the term "motor oil" as a descriptor when it pours has never been more accurate. Absolutely coats the glass. Small, dark mocha/brown head which settles quickly to frothy wisps
S: BIG coffee and chocolate. Bourbon/ethanol as it warms.
T: Really sweet. Lots of chocolate, coffee and dark fruit, emphasis on chocolate.
M: Viscous. Thick. Ridiculously coats the mouth and lingers
O: Whether it is the pappy barrels (maybe) or just the time, thought, and care put into this beer (likely) it is truly one of the best BA stouts I have had.
