A: Deep brown to black in the glass, a nice caramel colored head on the top.
S: Bitter chocolate, coffee and oaky bourbon hit right away. Notes of Vanilla, and espresso finish out the smell. Very nice.
T: A little sharpness as the coffee hits your tongue, followed by chocolate and vanilla. The bourbon fades in for a gentle caress of charred oak, spirit, and toasted goodness. A lovely balance of beer and bourbon.
M: Medium to medium thick, carbonation is low but active, slightly drying on the tongue.
O: Overall a very good beer. Wonderful balance with a tendency for sweetness. The bourbon is certainly there, although it is far less present than previous releases by this brewery. And while I appreciate a good bourbon bomb, this kiss of spirit is certainly a welcome experience.
Serving type: growler

Bottle shared by Umberto at Curran's tasting.
Pours a very dark brown, basically black, with a one inch mocha head, and a medium amount of lacing.
Smells like chocolate liqueur, bourbon, roasted malt, and a bit of coffee.
Thankfully, the coffee is stronger in the taste. There is some smooth, well integrated bourbon, rich chocolate, along with some mildly bitter, slightly nutty coffee taste. There is the smallest tart-ish twang at the end of each sip from the bourbon and coffee.
Medium bodied, could be slightly thicker. Fairly drinkable. Low carbonation. Very creamy mouthfeel.
Yet another awesome BA stout consumed this past weekend, I think this one's a little better than the ratings suggest.
