22oz bomber with red wax shared at the whale tasting 7/13/2013, poured into a BCBS snifter.

This beer smells quite a bit sweet, with a ton of different flavours. If you spend enough time you might pick them out, but I mostly got bourbon, a bit of coffee, lots of chocolate (the bitter dark kind), sweet malty caramel with a little bit of barrel. It pours pretty much pitch black like the other big imperial stouts at the tasting. Not much more than a minimal brown head that fades into a pitch black, very placid brew.

Flavourwise it is fairly sweet but not overly unbalanced sweet like Dark Lord. It's chocolate molasses with a bit of coffee and vanilla.. highlighted by sweet bourbon. The oak comes out more here than in the nose. Pretty complex, and as I said above if I spent more time sousing out the different flavours, there's probably more in there.

This beer was full bodied, but not as thick as Rare or Vanilla Bean DL. That being said, it was still very thick. Standard carbonation for the style, and drinks smoothly. There's a bit of heat in this beer which isn't unexpected. Aftertaste is mostly a molasses + sweet bourbon combo.

I would say this beer is worth shelling out $50 with some friends to try out. I'd rather spend that money on something else like Rare or VBDL but cost aside, this is a friggin' fantastic BA stout. Everything seems to be present and complementing each other well including the barrel. I think it could go with a little bit less heat and a little more body. But who am I to be asking for more when this beer pretty much delivers on all counts?

Re-review: Generously opened up by Doug today at our celebratory whale tasting, 3/22/2014. Poured into a Three Floyds teku glass. Drank this one just right before we opened up a 2012 Bourbon Barrel-Aged Dark Lord. Basically, this beer's appearance is pretty much unchanged, pours with a minimal half finger brown head with little retention. The smell is JUST like the BADL- especially the barrel vanilla contribution- except with a bit more of charred malts and dark fruit, likely from the BA Black Albert contribution. And the flavour is very similar to BADL- very sugary sweet but with a nice port-like sweetness and charred roast malt character that cuts that particular sweetness, with an incredible barrel vanilla contribution similar to the BADL. Mouthfeel is impeccable, zero ABV heat and very chewy. Overall, I think this beer has done well over the last 15 months, and if you have any, consider drinking it soon. It's hard to imagine how it could be any better with more age, but it's not entirely out of the question. Also, if I had the choice between obtaining this beer vs the '12 BADL, I would go for this one 10 times out of 10.

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.
