Thanks to Joe for sharing this rarity.

Poured pitch black. Inky, deathly, and murderous. It donned a brown cap and left its sticky resin in my Duvel tulip. Really big. There is a lot going on here and I don't even know where to start. Huge bourbon notes of caramel, vanilla, oak, and toffee. Lots of sweetness and malt. Bit of dates and black currants thrown in. Wonderfully blended and delicious. The body is sticky and sweet with a HUGE thickness. One of the thickest beers I've ever had. Velvety carbonation. Boozy and alcoholic finish that does not detract from the beer at all. I think this beer is absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend seeking it out.

Cheers to my sister for this one. 6 oz. in a FFF Rastal (how befitting) on December 28th, 2012.

A - Much darker and more menacing than Baller. Deep brown, black coloring with a ring of medium khaki foam. No significant lacing but considerable legs.

S - Dominant bourbon barrel. Rich cake batter and espresso. Very soft chocolate covered cherry and alcohol solvency underneath.

T - Front palate hits quick with a surge of brown sugar sweetness. Mid palate blends a tandem of milk and dark chocolate bar followed by honey and caramel. The palate is sweet, no doubt, but the sweetness is multi-dimensional and not overbearing. Backend asserts oak barrel and light roasted cashew. A nice touch of oak tannins recalls BCBS Rare - I wonder if any of the four components saw PVW barrels, because it tastes like they may have.

M - Medium body, appropriate low carbonation, semi-dry finish.

D - Everything about this is better than FFF's 15th anniversary beer. The separate recipes integrate well and the blend is coherent. For the price, this needed to be every bit as good as it is, and I am very happy to taste a BA FFF with real purpose (finally!).

22oz bottle picked up from brew pub. Didn't flinch at the $50, just had to drink this BA Brew.

Let me start by saying that while this is touted as BA Baller stout. Its is not the same beer. What it is actually is all four of the Stouts that make up Baller Stout. Dark lord, Darkness, BG brunch and Black Albert. That were Barrel aged separately and then blended. Not Baller aged in barrels.

This is a complex brew. It's is Dark in appearance, very Dark. Solid thick head of tan goodness. Looks plain tasty!
Bourbon smell off the bat, smells of rich chocolate, dark fruits, hint of coffee. This one you will notice you are smelling between every taste.

Take your first mouthful. Dobt sip the first one, better fill the pallet as its going to get active quickly. Taste the chocolate, the bourbon is there, some fruits and more chocolate cherry bourbon swirl. Truly a delight!

I really enjoy the creamy thick mouthfeel of this one. Big body especially compared to other bourbon feels. It's perfect.

This beer is top notch. It beats BCBS easy, smokes KBS( especially this years) and I would put this up there with any stout. It does fit my tastes perfectly. And I only wish I could get one fresh off a tap. Lots of complexity, but it blends terrificly.
I was able to puck up a couple more and will have a hard time cellaring this beer.
Sucks that is may never be made again! Can only hope the 20yr at FFF is comparable.
Cheers

Purchased a bomber of this brew at the Three Floyds Brewery for a hefty price.

Appearance: Dark, very dark. The pour produced a slight half finger of head which had a dark red color to it. Head retained well and slowly crept down the glass.

Smell: Strong bourbon barreled presence is in the aroma. Dark fruit aroma creeps through which surprisingly mixed pretty well with the bourbon accents.

Taste: WOW, no doubt a potent stout. My guess on the ABV has to be around 15-16%. While the high alcohol content is there, plenty else is happening with this brew. A cherry, fruity flavor is accompanied by the creamy bourbon presence. A strong body to this beer but I honestly expected it to be a bit heavier. No doubt that this is an absolute treat though.

Mouthfeel: One of my favorite aspects of this beer. Creamy texture covers the palette and sticks to your touch whether you like it or not. Smooth mouthfeel despite high ABV.

Overall: A really wonderful stout. I wouldn't put it with a KBS or some of the Bourbon County products but it is certainly not far off. The hefty price tag for this beer made the expectations for this beer very high and I would say they were met, not exceeded. Glad I gave this beer a try or I would forever wish I had gave it a shot, not knowing if the opportunity to try it again would arise.

This is my first review on BA, and this beer DESERVES to be the first! I thought I had spoiled myself with BCS & variants this holiday season, but this just took the cake ringing in the New Year! This beer was WONDERFUL! It hit so high on every note! A lot of mouthfeel, had a dark chocolate color, with great tan head, and a lot of complexity going on with the taste; chocolates, coffee?, roasty... This is the best stout I've had yet. Overall this beer was like a Baller Stout kicked way up! Aging the others for the years to come!
