A: deep brown, not black, and not fully opaque. Thin head, moderate lacing (alcohol limited is my guess).
S: when very cold, not much of an aroma. As it warms, there is malty, a little coffee and oaky bourbon.
T: When cold, the alcohol was not as well hidden. As it warmed it had nice roasted nutty character with really only moderate bourbon notes. This is not a bourbon bomb like BCBS, the flavors are more subtle.
M: rather thin and slippery. This is not a thick stout, it has the mouthfeel of a lager in many respects. Easy to drink.
O: terrific beer for what it is. Do not expect a monster thick, heavy bourbon flavored stout. This is a porter, it is more approachable, more drinkable and more subtle in all its flavors and smells.
