Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Half Acre snifter.
No bottle date. Cool label. Complementing color schemes throughout.

If you liked Southern Tier's Creme Brulee stout, you'll want this. You'll want it bad. Enjoyed the mouthfeel on this one. Nice to have something more dense after a lot of thinner stouts. Boozy. Good boozy. Excellent.

12oz bottle. Thanks JR. Poured into a O'so snifter today, 4/22/2014.

A- Dark black body, two finger mocha head that's particularly large for a BA stout like this. Great retention and some lacing left over. Quite different than all the other BA stouts I've seen, actually.

S- Very sweet lactose, roast and charred malts that is cut by a nice bitter spicy rye nose. Solid, nothing super special or pungent, but this combination shows up much better on the nose.

F- Very good and very balanced. Simultaneously sweet lactose, sweet whiskey notes and dark malts mixed in with the rye bitterness that balances everything out. Very flavourful and very interesting.

M- Medium bodied but on the thicker side, very substantial and surprisingly low carbonation despite the large head in the appearance.

O- Very good imperial stout, it's certainly not BCBS but it's a very good and somewhat unique beer in its own right.

Bottle as an extra from Tim. Big time thanks! Pours black with a big fluffy dark brown head that pops out of my Teku glass. Some roast and sweet lactose aroma, a little chocolate, a bit of bourbon booze. Plenty of rye whiskey here on top of a big roasty stout. Some dark chocolate notes, a bit of dark fruit, and some more mellow whiskey. Lingering roast and like oak left on the palate. Rich mouthfeel supported by what I assume is lactose that sweetens things up a bit. Low to medium carbonation. A really nice beer with good balance between roast, sweet, and spicy rye whiskey notes.
