Poured into tulips and shared. Pure black with a decent light-roasted coffee-colored head. Aromas of coffee, bourbon, roast malt, and brown sugar/caramel. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, whiskey, some dried fruit, caramel, and vanilla. Rich and full mouthfeel with little to no carbonation. Definitely a sipping beer, you're not going to pound this. Its a meal in a glass. Overall, an enjoyable dessert stout, but not something I'd want to drink all the time. Definitely worth the $19 I spent on it.

22oz bottle into snifter.

A: Pours a thick near black color with a finger of ruddy dark brown head that quickly faded into a faint bubbly collar.
S: Rich and decadent scents of toffee, caramel, and leather beneath dominating notes of sweet bourbon, buttery oak and greasy chocolate syrup. I get a hint of dark fruits and spice as well.
T: Rich and potent like the nose. I get huge flavors of chocolate brownie, chocolate syrup, sweet and buttery bourbon barrel, and brown sugar. I get a touch of candied fruits, vanilla, and roast in the finish. I get a touch of bitter coffee as well. The aftertaste is spicy and has lingering notes of chocolate and roast. The booze is very mellow and buttery with no trace of heat at all.
M: Very thick and chewy body, viscous mouthfeel, tight and velvety carbonation. There's a decent bitterness in the finish as well.
O: An underrated barrel aged stout. This drinks exceptionally well with potent flavors and a smooth and full mouthfeel. Delicious.

Poured from the 22 oz bottle into a snifter glass.
Pours jet black, little to no head.
Smells of light bourbon and deep dark roasted malts.
Tastes like coffee a touch of chocolate and a lot of roast.
Finishes velvety and smooth.
A drinkable big Imperial Stout. Delicious!

M-smooth and mellow BA on the sweet side it coates the palate
O- delicious BA Stout one of the best ive had only detractor is the price of $26 and its limited availability worth a try even at the high price and i would buy it again

Black with brown head.

Bourbon and cookie dough, one of the better noses, really.

Bourbon's more backseat flavor, notes of amaretto and oak. Vanilla? Maybe. Dialed back version of the Doughnut Break and with a cookie twist. Robust but not a shock or punch to the mouth. Could stand to be more forward. Not worth $30, IMO.

Stout, not a porter. Not particularly smooth, has a good edge to it.
