Picked this up from a great trade with Evan! Pitch black motor oil pour with a thin, quickly fading caramel-colored head with decent lacing. The nose is rich and decadent! Chocolate fudge brownies, espresso, vanilla, whiskey, oak, and dark fruit. The taste is just as rich and very complex with huge chocolate fudge and whiskey notes along with hints of vanilla, oak, cocoa, dark fruits, espresso, subtle coconut, molasses, tobacco, and leather. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy and beautifully balanced with a velvety smooth finish. There is a dessert-like sweetness, but it isn't overpowering and doesn't hurt the drinkability at all. Same with the alcohol. It's there throughout, but it's never boozey. Overall, this was well worth what I gave up in trade. Definitely top 3 for BA stouts! Highly recommended!!!
