I split this one with Huzahbendah here recently at a tasting. Thank god (or whatever Richard Dawkins worships), I took good notes.

A: Looked like black, infected snot coming out of the bottle. Dark as hell, with a slight mocha head that was ultimately anti-climactic.

S: Fruity Pebbles... Hell, "Dark Lord" was the dominating presence here. Lots of milk chocolate and Cherry Cordial ice cream. No bourbon.

T: Enormous barrel aging here. Do NOT have this as your main course. This is a dessert beer through and through. Hell, I even burped sweet cherries and coconut bourbon. Seriously, the only one I got was "Dark Lord" with Darkness, Black Albert, and Brunch Weasel playing deep, deep, deep background.

M: Snot-like, and to be honest, the sweetness wasn't as cutting as I thought it was going to be upon first sniff, however, this was pitch perfect on the carbonation and thickness feel.

O: I paid $50 for this at the brewery, therefore, if you have one of these, please bide your time and consider this an "event" beer. As for me, I thought it was worth the money as a one time shot.

Brought to you by Dennoman at the big DL lineup a few weeks back. I barely even remember this one, but luckily I took surprisingly detailed notes on it. Way more detailed than I remember doing. I must have been in great shape still.

From a 750 into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours out thicker than the Dark Lord variants, relatively viscous and black but not quite pitch black, yielding a smaller, medium looking, fluffy, light mocha head with good retention. Black body with no carbonatino evident. Head fades to a small, swirly wisp and ring but leaves no real lacing down the glass. Pretty good looking stout.

SMELL: Lots of bourbon on the nose, with oak, vanilla, coconut and caramel as well. Light roasted aroma with some dark chocolate combine with some milk chocolate and sweet cream from the bourbon barrel. Pretty bold with a good balance between the base blend and bourbon barrel. Really good.

TASTE: Lots of barrel again, with piles of bourbon, oak, vanilla, sweet cream and caramel sweetness with a hint or bitter roasted flavors at the swallow. Bold and unrelenting aftertaste of bourbon barrel, lightly roasted and burnt malts with some bitter dark chocolate as well. The oak and sweet vanilla cream flavors from the boozy bourbon barrel work well with the roasted and bitter base beer. Actually surprisingly good and well integrated.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Enough weight for the style, creamy enough as well, goes down fine and finishes slightly sticky. A burst of heat lingers on the palate as well. A touch hot perhaps, but definitely big and smooth enough to support the flavors.

OVERALL: I must have liked this beer way more than I can remember. Luckily I can still read my scrawl as well. This was much better than I'd expected. The bourbon barrel works really well with the base stout, making a big statement but still showing excellent balance as well. The feel could perhaps be a touch bigger, which would give the flavors the support they need for top marks, but given the style, this is a minor complaint. Come to think of it, given how much I actually liked the bourbon DL versions, I guess it's not such a surprise that I enjoyed this so much. On the whole, I'm a pretty big fan of the four base beers. Thanks again Dennoman! This was a beauty.

A - Dark chocolate brown with no head to it

S - Bourbon notes, chocolate, vanilla, fudge and coffee notes make up a great nose

T - Bourbon vanilla sweetness up front with lots of chocolate and caramel. Dates, brown sugar and oak. Loads of butterscotch to it. This is one flavorful beer that really impresses

M - Silky smooth with minimal carbonation to it. Finish is slightly strong alcohol and oak

O - Really a great BA beer from FFF with great sweetness and barrel to it. Reminds me a bit of brandy vanilla DL but not as marshmallowy

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black. Decent khaki head. Leggy. Chunky collar.

Smell - Incredible bourbon aroma. Vanilla and oak. Oak is strong. Booze and chocolate. Some coffee. The slightest bit of licorice.

Taste - Chocolate and booze up front. Bourbon is just as good as the smell. Rich chocolate all over. Oak very strong. Just incredible.

Mouthfeel - It's hella boozy. Medium carbonation. Heavy, but not too sugary.

Overall - This is one of the best bourbon stouts I've had in a long time.
