On tap at Pin's.

5.5oz. pour into a Pin's mini-snifter. Solid black pour, with a small dark brown head that settled to a ringlet and head there, leaving dots of lacing and a few oily legs on the glass. Nice aroma of dark roasty malts and sweet fudge, some boozy fumes. The taste was a bit of a let-down after what the nose promised, but it was still good. Dark malts, a fair amount of roast, toasted oak, semi-sweet chocolate, coconut, and a booziness ever present in the background, coming out more as it warmed. Unfortunately the bourbon wasn't too pronounced, and it came off more solvent-like than anything. The body was medium, maybe edging on medium-full, but it felt like the booze thinned it out a bit, keeping it from being a smooth sipper, though it definitely improved after sitting a few minutes at room temp. Overall a solid BA stout, though needing some work. I'd still like to try it again.

Pours a near black color with a small dense brown head that settles into a light ring.

The aroma is sweet. Light roasted malt scent with a hint of anise. Mellow caramel under current. Slight acidic twang.

The taste is of a moderate roast, has more bite than in the aroma. Lots of sweet notes going on. Big caramel and milk sugars. Light bourbon with a tart dark berry action. Some bitter chocolate in the finish. Reminds me of BCBS but not as sweet and boozy.

Nice full chewy body. Soft carbonation with a sticky finish. Slight bitterness and acidity in the finish. ABV is well hidden.

A good barrel aged stout. Quite sweet but has nice mellow flavors.

Serving type: growler

@ Ridgewood

Solid black covered with a sticky beige cap and some drippy lacing. Fudgy, slight Bourbony aromas...lactose sweetness, caramel, vanilla, light sherry, oak, perhaps a bit of hazelnut. Huge malty flavor: creamy Bourbon, loads of rich chocolate, charred roast, lactose, and a dark fruity sweetness. Thick, textured mouthfeel that dries out a bit in the finish. A little warming, but certainly not hot by any means. A good, rich barrel-aged stout that leaves the lips sticky with crazy richness.

Deep dark opaque brown in color with a small khaki colored head. Aromas are butterscotch, sweet creamy cocoa, leather, vanilla, berries, caramel, a touch of liquor, and faint woodiness. Flavors are sweet, smooth, and lengthy. Lactose sweetness, milk chocolate, cocoa, dark chocolate, and a pile of sweet syrup soaked drippy miscellaneous purple fruit. Big flavorful ball of sweet fruity chocolate swimming over caramel, vanilla and alcohol. No overwhelming bourbon in aroma and flavor but it is present. Mouthfeel is excellent. Very smooth, fluid, soft, a touch of fine grittiness. This is fairly easy to consume given its size...
