2012 12 oz bottle
A: Pours jet black, slight head that instantaneously dissipates. Some alcohol legs
S: Balances, a bit muted but well rounded charred oak, fig, roasted malt
T: roast, oak, charred wood, fig, a bit of chocolate and coffee. More of an earthy dry taste than a caramel/toffee sweetness that's sometimes seen in other BB stouts.
M: Very well balanced stout. Coats mouth nicely but not sticky. Full body.
Overall: Fantastic beer. One of the best stouts I've had, let alone bourbon barrel stout. This and BCBS are a near tie for perfection. I also really love the 12 oz format of the 2012 batch. If you have a chance to try this stout do not pass it up!
