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.

Creamy and lush like a first grade crush - why, hello there. Don't get Raul wrong, he's not tripping on this one like that one time Anabel Eliza gave him some her Candy Hearts on valentines day - no no no. But it's a nice lil brew to sip on when you are sippin' it.

Yep!

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.
