Thanks easyread, can't thank you enough for your generosity!

this is fan-tastic. Pashel turned me onto this guy last year with the regular version. The BA version is even better! perserves all of the great flavors with an added layer of vanilla and bourbon. wb knows how to barrel age with the best of them.
ive had a ton of baltic ba beers, thus ranks near the top!

Viscous dark black with a razor thin tan head that fades to nothing. The nose is unimpressive bourbon, some aluminum sweetness and roasty cocoa. It had a much more pleasant taste - smooth chocolaty bourbon, subtle and integrated flavors, lingering alcohol without the burn, slight bitterness. This is that smooth bourbony stout you're expecting when you drink it. I would recommend, but it's not my favorite.
