Opportunity courtesy of Kyle....thanks as always!
Black with a nice mocha cap that shows some staying power.
Nice powdery cocoa on the nose...smooth and rich. Not sure I detect a wine presence.
Decadent dessert beer...gooey brownies, Again, not sure I'd pull wine, but whatever is here lays a luxurious cover atop the base stout. Loads of flavor, shockingly so. Creamy and fluffy on the palate..a very smooth drinking imperial stout with a unique barrel presence that's original and delicious.
Many of the reviews here seem mediocre and to say this beer surprised and impressed me is an understatement: an awesome unexpected treat. We drank this blind and this beer did not at all match my expectations based on my feeble brain. This gives me hope for some other BA Floyd's offerings.

On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, citrus zest, and bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, raisin, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty with its unique raisin flavor that I am getting.
