11/20/14 Poured into a snifter.

A- Pretty black, some light coming through on the edges, one finger light brown head, decent alcohol legs.

S- Dark fruits, alcohol, chocolate, coffee, coconut, vanilla, all the aromas of a great BA stout, the alcohol is a bit harsh but that's the only real complaint.

T- Lots of chocolate, coffee, some dried cherry, bit of vanilla and coconut, the alcohol is there but much smoother than expected given the nose. Finishes with a nice coffee and dark chocolate note with a bit of lactose sweetness.

M- A bit on the lighter side of a big barrel aged stout but not to where I would call it thin. One thing is it seems to perhaps be on the higher end of the carbonation range for a stout.

O- I haven't really had anything from Greenbush that has wowed me but this one definitely does. It has all the flavors and aromas you expect from a great bourbon barrel aged stout like that of Black Note or BCBS. This is definitely something worth tracking down and even trading for and I will definitely be seeking this out in years to come.

12 oz bottle poured into a pair of samplers from Georgetown. 4208 71C0811 is the code printed on the bottom of the bottle. MFG 11.20.14 is printed on the label.

Pours black with a good sized brownish head that fades surprisingly slowly. Head ends up as a creamy, softly rolling surface. Smell is bourbony, smokey, and woody. Alcohol and vanilla.

Taste is surprisingly strong coffee and chocolate. A little stab of vanilla; more of a whiskey taste than vanilla taste than the aroma indicated. Strong bitterness, and very noticeable alcohol.

Mouthfeel is smooth, warm, fluffy. Overall, pretty nice beer. I like it.
