Figure the best beer to write my first full review!
2013 bottle #344 of 711
A: Pitch black motor oil with no head at all
S: Vanilla punch with chocolate and marshmallow
T: Here is where it lives up to the hype. Amazing taste. Sweet vanilla chocolate bourbon marshmallow. Get the base dark lord beer in the background which was just okay when I had it but then multiplies that quality of the taste by 200 percent with the addition of vanilla and bourbon.
M: Is thick as you would expect from any high quality stout
O: Amazing beer and very lucky to have won with my golden ticket. Just hope this won't be the last time that I get to try this amazing beer.

2014 mini-rereview: bottle tasted like vanilla extract compared with '13. Bottle #2
2013 bottle #535
A- Black motor oil viscous with faint yellow
S- So much vanilla and marshmallow. Bourbon background, fig, caramel in background.
T- By far the biggest vanilla that I have ever had out of any beer. You have to drink this one fresh. I can't imagine how aging does anything for this beer. My favorite BB Stout that I have had. Where Chocolate Rain has the vanilla, but it goes overboard on the sweetness diabetes; this beer is just right.
M- Nothing too special here. Run of the mill top tier BA Stout feel.
O- Definitely worth a try once in your lifetime. Would I go back for another bottle? Probably not due to what it takes to get this bottle, and the fact that you can't age this beer in your cellar; but worth the try just on the vanilla aspect itself.
