Had on tap at Haymarket. Served in the small raster glass so not a good representation of head, which was nonexistent. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of subtle bourbon, vanilla, Roast malt and gets much more complex as it warms. Taste is again subtle bourbon, chocolate, Dark fruit, a hint of molasses and a fantastic vanilla malty finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied - looks thicker than it actually is. Fantastic beer at an excellent price for the style ($9 for 12 oz not 8oz like other BA stouts). Drinks very easily for 12.5%.

12 oz. draft at The Haymarket

Can't give this one a proper review since I had it over a bachelor party weekend in Chicago and didn't take notes, but along with Haymarket's Mathias DIPA, this one deserved more than just a rating.

All the usual suspects were there in the aroma and taste--bittersweet chocolate, dark coffee, caramel, vanilla, ripe dark fruit, molasses, charred wood, and of course a warm bourbon backbone. Beautiful balance of sweetness, bitterness, and alcohol heat. Rich, creamy, full-bodied and silky smooth with low carbonation. Masterfully crafted, and something I would deem a "must-have" if you're in the area.

On tap at the brewery

A-pitch black with a nice tan head that sticks around for a while

S-sweet mellow boubron that is strong, but not too strong. Great smell

T-follows the smell. Mellow bourbon nice malt backbone. Little bit of vanilla towards the end

M-medium body and smooth. Makes my mouth water

O-well worth the hour drive through traffic. Bravo!
