Was very, very pleased with this one. Thank you Green Flash!

A: The brew produced a single fingered, tan colored head that exhibited decent retention and lacing. The beer itself is deep brown only allowing some light to pass through the edges.

S: Definitely bourbon barrel aged! Vanilla and cocoa nibs follow and accompany the bourbon beautifully.

T: Follows the scent perfectly. I love bourbon in my stouts, especially when its balanced like this.

M: Thinner than expected, could have had slightly higher carbonation.

O: Not without its flaws, but that flavor is one of the best I've ever had.

Another amazing bottle from BA Tieman. Cheers!

A - dark as a black hole with a nice .5 inch of coffee-colored head on top.

S - bourbon dominates, followed by chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, dark fruits. Very nice.

T - a ton of bourbon, some alcohol burn, espresso and chocolate with a hint of vanilla to close it out.

M - very pleasant, but a little hot and thin at the moment.

O - a damn fine bba stout, worthy of its A rating. I'll definitely search out a few more bottles to see how they develop with some time.

12oz bottle into my Bruery tulip. It poured black in color with a thin, sticky, tan colored head to it. Nice lacing on the glass as I drank it.

The aroma has a rich dark chocolate and bourbon flavor to it. I get some brown sugar and vanilla sweetness mixing with some bitter, roasty, coffee flavors. Very nice range of flavors to it.

The taste starts out with some of the sweeter, malty, vanilla flavors. Towards the finish more of the bitter-sweet chocolate and roasty flavors mix with some of the dry, woody oak. The bourbon really compliments the beer well and gives it some great depth.

The mouthfeel is on the heavier side with carbonation being on the lower side. Overall it was a great beer to sip on this evening. Everything really comes together in it nicely. The bourbon barrel flavors really integrated nicely into the beer. Great beer overall.
