Bottle (batch #209) poured into snifter. Although this bottle says aged in BT barrels, I was talking to Bobby at Durty Nellies Spring beerfest (2014) right before this was released and they were sampling it - and he said it was actually aged in Heaven Hill barrels. Breaking this bad boy out for the Bears first game of the season!

A - aggressive pour yield a few cm head, mocha colored, which settled quickly, almost no lacing. beer is a black color, almost reminds me of cola
S - oh yeah that great aroma of a BBA Stout that I love - sweetness, vanilla, bourbon
T - coffee, milk chocolate, bourbon, oak, vanilla
M - SOooo smooth, i love it. on the heavier side of medium bodied, lower carb. actually finishes a bit hot which I like.
O - outstanding BA stout. this is perfect for a late summer Sunday afternoon watching football. only wish I was able to get more than one =(

Batch #209, sticker on side said 66657, 12 oz bottle poured into snifter. Really skeptical going into this, my second Pipeworks beer, after the harrowing Citra Ninja encounter. Fortunately I was pleasantly surprised.

A: Pours black with a bit of head that disappeared pretty quickly. Looks good.

S: Nose has a lots of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and a bit of -- this may be weird but -- that sting as if you stuck your face right in a bag of cocoa powder and took a big whiff. It's not necessarily unpleasant but made me think the taste might be a weird artificial cocoa. Fortunately that was not the case...

T: The taste follows the nose but instead of the harsh powdered cocoa it’s nice and smooth milk chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and roasty malts, basically in that order. The aftertaste, like other milk stouts, is a nice chocolate milk with a bit of bourbon as well. Yum! It gets even better as it warms. There's a bit of alcohol heat but that's expected with a >10% beer and overall it's masked pretty well.

M: creamy and full, very nice.

O: I went into this with low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. As I was sipping this I saw that it won an award at FoBAB, so that's cool too. Hopefully my next pdubs experience will be like this one.
