Wow. What a surprised!

Chocolate, vanilla, oak, rye spicy-ness, and some booze... so complex and well executed beer. This beer, imo, stand next to some of the best BA stouts out there.

Snappy bubbly dark caramel colored burnt head. Rises fast and seems to fall fast, but on the fall, it levels off to a 1/2 finger dense foam. Very dark black, but rather thin. Not the best appearance. Nice legs, not much retention and no lacing.

TONS of vanilla, oak, bourbon, chocolate, spice, molasses. Heavy and robust.

Flavors are much lighter than aroma. Thin feel and heavy carbonation takes away from over all experience, but doesn't kill it. Barrel flavors are very nice and full. Lots of robust dark, deep, chewy, chocolate covered slightly in vanilla and red wine. Lots of toasty caramel There's not many corners cut with the flavors.

A great collaboration between two great places. B'side Avarice is a solid brew, even at @ $17. Highly recommended for the beginner BA stout drinker. A perfect start to Super Bowl Sunday!!! GO BRONCOS!!!
