A: Pours pitch black with a medium sized dense brown head. Leaves a solid wall of lacing as it slowly fades away.
S: I can smell the bourbon from across the room after I pour it. Strong toffee, caramel, brown sugar and vanilla. There is roasted malt hiding behind it with some char and chocolate mainly.
T: Up front is stinging bourbon with again, toffee, brown sugar and caramel. Light vanilla is present throughout the beer. Smooths out surprisingly quickly after the initial bourbon hit. Big chocolate and caramel in the middle. Fades into a vanilla oakiness with hints of chocolate and a little char. Vanilla lingers nicely in the aftertaste.
M: Thick, heavy, and syrupy. Surprisingly smooth.
O: My first impression is that this reminds me a lot of Black Tuesday. This has a bit stronger bourbon hit up front, but with less molasses than BT. This is a delicious exercise in extreme barrel aged stouts.

2014 bottle from a great trader, poured July 3, 2014. Pours pitch black with a one finger dark brown head, nice and creamy. Aroma of chocolate, mellow bourbon, vanilla, caramel, anise, oak char. Reminds me a lot of Black Note on the nose. Very rich smelling yet not over the top. Flavor follows with a nice vanilla chocolate caramel note, dark fruits, long roasty finish with lingering vanilla, definite char flavors from the oaky bourbon barrels. Huge rich mouthfeel that is right on the nose with low medium carbonation. While this has a hard yet more on the fruity side than I tend to like in the style, there is no question this is world class. The bourbon barrels only accent the flavors and this isn't just some huge bourbon bomb. Nicely done.
