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 =(

12oz bottle; the second bottling of the same beer. Poured into a snifter 9/29/2014.

A- Dark brown body, not much head or lacing. Pretty straightforward in terms of appearance. [3.75]

S- Chocolate, lactose, bourbon, oak, vanilla bean, a little bit of roast. Smells great, very clean with nice complexity and sweetness. [4.25]

F- Lactose, cocoa, vanilla, roast malt, milk chocolate, plenty of clean bourbon that integrates well with the beer rather than overwhelming the different adjuncts and the base beer. [4.25]

M- On the thinner end of medium, undercarbonated, but a pleasant combination of bourbon and adjuncts make this a nice sipper; there is definitely a decent bit of heat on this. Definitely worth splitting a bottle with other folks. [3.75]

O- Very nice offering from Pipeworks, this is certainly a very good, but not quite excellent, bourbon barrel aged stout. [4]

From notes on 6/6/14

Thin black pour with little head. Aroma is all bourbon. Most whiskey smelling beers I've ever smelled. Taste is milky chocolate with a lot of bourbon. Very good, but very strong.
